Jetstar Asia is adding eight additional services to its weekly schedule between Singapore and Bangkok from July 8 to cater for increasing demand from leisure and business travellers.
The new services will see Jetstar Asia fly up to five times daily to the capital of the Land of Smiles, adding over 2800 seats of new capacity each week between the two popular gateways in Southeast Asia.
Jetstar Asia Chief Executive Officer Barathan Pasupathi said that Bangkok, and Thailand more broadly, continued to be one of the biggest markets for Jetstar in their Southeast Asian network.
“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,” Pasupathi said.
“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 from Singapore to Bangkok start from 114 Singapore dollar or Bt2,699.
