Jetstar Asia to become only low-cost-carrier to fly direct Singapore to Colombo


Jetstar Asia will become the only low-cost carrier to fly direct from Singapore to Colombo, Sri Lanka when it launches the new service on 1 July 2020.

With fares going on sale today, Colombo becomes Jetstar Asia’s 25th destination from Singapore and the first airline in the Qantas Group to fly to the popular hotspot.

The return service will operate four times a week with flights timed to allow more travellers from Europe, Australia and Southeast Asia to access this must-see destination by transiting through Changi Airport in Singapore.

Jetstar Asia CEO, Bara Pasupathi, said Sri Lanka frequently topped the most desired holiday destination lists and Colombo was the perfect gateway to this amazing country.

“As we face an ever-changing aviation and tourism landscape, Jetstar Asia is committed to continuing to open up exciting new destinations for our customers,” Mr Pasupathi said.

“Colombo and its surrounding area have so much to offer, from the sprawling city, to the beautiful beaches, the incredible food and the many significant cultural, religious and historical landmarks.





“With our low fares, we’re excited to be able to open up this incredible destination to ensure more people experience all that it has to offer.

“This market has so much potential, and we’re proud to be working with great partners, including CAG in Singapore and Hayleys in Sri Lanka, to expand the Jetstar network and continue to grow LCC traffic out of Singapore.”

Sri Lanka Tourism Chairperson, Mrs. Kimarli Fernando, added "We are very happy to welcome Jetstar Asia Airways to the most beautiful island in the world; with nature, diverse culture, heritage, wildlife, Ayurveda and strong food culture”.
