Jetstar Asia to operate vaccinated travel lane services between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore

Jetstar has received approval to operate Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) services between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, helping restore one of the world’s busiest international air links. Starting on 29 November, seven of Jetstar Asia’s 15 weekly return services between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore will be designated VTL flights, enabling fully vaccinated customers to enter Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, quarantine-free. 

Jetstar Asia’s Head of Commercial and RGM SEA, Woo Wai Keong, said the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore route was always a critical link between two of Southeast Asia’s leading cities.

“It is wonderful to be able to offer customers travelling between Malaysia and Singapore a quarantine-free travel option, and play a part bringing families, friends and colleagues back together again for the first time in nearly two years.” Mr. Woo said.

In line with Malaysia and Singapore Government requirements, only fully vaccinated passengers (exemptions apply to passengers 12 years and below) who meet all the necessary VTL conditions can travel on designated VTL flights between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.

Customers who book a Jetstar Asia (3K) flight on before 31 December 2021 for travel before 30 June 2023, will be given one ‘fee free’ date change as part of Jetstar’s Fly Flexible policy*.

Jetstar’s Fly Well safety measures offer an added layer of protection and demonstrate our commitment to keeping our people and our customers safe.

New route between Singapore and Perth for Jetstar Asia

Jetstar Asia has announced plans to relaunch services between Singapore and Perth from 12 February 2022, when two-way quarantine-free travel is expected to be available to travellers.

Jetstar Asia will operate four weekly services to the Western Australian capital, pending Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) approval for the route, to meet the pent-up demand for travellers wanting to return to this popular Australian destination.

Pre-pandemic, Singapore travellers^ made up the largest group of visitors to Perth and with thousands of Singaporeans calling Western Australia home, the route is expected to be as popular as ever.

Jetstar Asia’s Head of Commercial, Clive Ashmore Butler, said it was exciting to add another Australian destination back to the Jetstar network direct from Singapore.

“Perth has always been an incredibly popular destination for Singaporeans, one that they would return to time and again,” Mr. Ashmore Butler said.

“Western Australia offers stunning beaches, wineries and restaurants, not to mention easy access to incredible places such as Margaret River and Ningaloo, but with many Singaporeans living in Perth it importantly enables family and friends to reconnect, some for the first time in two years.

Jetstar receives vaccinated travel lane approval

Jetstar has received approval to operate designated Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) services from Melbourne and Darwin to Singapore, starting in December.

Jetstar Airways flights between Melbourne and Singapore will commence from 19 December, offering two-way quarantine-free travel for fully vaccinated Singaporeans, Australians and Australian Permanent Residents.

To celebrate the expansion of Singapore’s VTL scheme to Australia, Jetstar has launched Singapore to Melbourne fares starting as low as SG$168 one way.

In addition, three weekly services from Darwin to Singapore, operated by Jetstar Asia, will commence on 20 December, marking the resumption of Jetstar Asia’s direct link to Australia’s “Top End”.

Singapore to Darwin fares of SG$138 one-way are now available for travel from late January 2022, when quarantine-free travel into the Northern Territory is expected to resume.

Customers outside Singapore wanting to travel to Australia can now connect to Darwin and Melbourne via Singapore’s Changi Airport from services operated by Jetstar’s global network of codeshare and interline partners as well as from across Jetstar Asia’s Southeast Asian network, such as Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, and Manila.

Jetstar Asia getting ready to resume services between Singapore and Darwin

Jetstar Asia has announced plans to resume its Singapore to Darwin services as early as mid-December 2021, when a travel corridor between Singapore and Australia is expected to open.

The popular route was first launched in 2008, with the airline flying more than 1.2 million visitors between the two cities during that time.

Jetstar Asia CEO, Bara Pasupathi, said after a two-year suspension, it was exciting to start preparation for Jetstar Asia’s return to Australia, starting with Darwin and with additional Australian routes planned for 2022.

“With Singapore’s strong vaccination rate and Australia on track to see 80 per cent of the population vaccinated by the end of the year, we’re starting to plan the restart of our international flights between these COVID-safe destinations,” Mr. Pasupathi said.

“We will remain flexible, but based on the pace of the vaccine rollout, we want to make sure we’re ready to reconnect family and friends and provide our customers with more exciting destinations, such as the ever popular Top-End, as soon as possible.

Phuket re-joins route network for Jetstar Asia.....

Jetstar Asia has restarted flights to the popular leisure destination Phuket, with the first flight taking off on Friday 3rd September.   The airline confirmed it has restarted the route with flights on Fridays and Sundays, with the possibility of adding more flights depending upon demand.

The route is part of the Thai Government’s ‘sandbox scheme’, where travellers fully vaccinated against COVID-19 are able to visit Phuket without the need to quarantine.

Clive Ashmore Butler, Head of Commercial said it was great to resume services to the stunning Thai island, with the launch representing an important milestone in the rebuilding of Jetstar Asia’s network. "As we see border restrictions start to ease, it is fantastic to be able to take advantage of important initiatives like the Phuket sandbox scheme and to play a pivotal role in rebuilding the tourism industry across the region -  We know low fares travel will drive the aviation industry’s recovery and as a leading low-cost carrier we are committed to seeking opportunities that allow us to provide our customers with more options to reconnect with families and friends or simply to take a much-needed holiday."

Patsalin Swetarat, Director of Tourism Authority of Thailand Singapore Office also believes in helping boost the confidence of the travelling public.  "We are pleased to share that up to 70 percent of the tourism workforce has been fully vaccinated and Phuket hotels, restaurants and tourism services, who are ‘SHA Plus’, have been certified as COVID-safe as well.  As we welcome Jetstar Asia and their passengers back to Phuket, the launch is timely as we introduce the ‘Phuket Sandbox 7+7 Extension’ program where fully vaccinated travellers can reduce the mandatory stay in Phuket to only 7 days instead of 14. The remaining 7 nights can be spent in Ko Phi Phi, Ko Ngai or Railay in Krabi, Khao Lak or Ko Yao in Phang-Nga, or Ko Samui, Ko Pha-ngan or Ko Tao in Surat Thani."

The Jetstar Group was recently named Asia Pacific’s best low-cost airline in 2021 and Jetstar Asia currently flies to ten key destinations in Southeast Asia.
