Jetstar will add more flights to Bangkok this summer.
From 8 July 2013, the low-cost carrier’s Asian unit will add eight additional weekly services between the Thai capital’s Suvarnabhumi airport and Singapore, taking the route’s total frequency to five flights per day.
“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,” said Jetstar Asia’s CEO, Barathan Pasupathi. “Last year alone we welcomed 30% more people on this route 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,” Pasupathi added.
With the new services, the Jetstar Group will operate 106 flights a week to Thailand with services from Singapore and Sydney to Phuket and flights from Melbourne and Singapore to Bangkok.
