8 new weekly flights from Singapore to Bangkok by Jetstar Asia

Singapore based budget airline Jetstar Asia is adding eight additional flights to its weekly schedule between Singapore and Bangkok from 8 July 2013 to cater for increasing demand from leisure and business travellers. According to Jetstar Asia Chief Executive Officer Barathan Pasupathi, Bangkok and more broadly Thailand is one of the biggest market for Jetstar. “We are adding capacity to Bangkok to meet ongoing strong demand from both the leisure market and an increasing number of business travellers attracted to our low fares and our expanding schedule. Last year alone we welcomed 30 per cent more people on this route than in 2011 with more than two million passengers carried. With our new offering of up to five services a day, we can give more choices and better connection times to even more leisure travellers not just from Singapore but transiting through our Singapore hub on other Jetstar services,” Mr Pasupathi said.

With the new services, the Jetstar Group will operate 106 flights a week to Thailand with services from Singapore and Sydney to Phuket and services from Melbourne and Singapore to Bangkok.

One-way Economy Starter fares for flights from Singapore to Bangkok start from SGD $114 or THB 2699.
