Jetstar Asia, the Singapore-based low-cost carrier, has announced the resumption of direct flights to Clark, Philippines, and the addition of a new route to Krabi, Thailand, further expanding its Southeast Asian network.

Flights to Clark International Airport will take off from Singapore’s Changi International Airport on June 16, 2024, initially operating four weekly return services before increasing to five weekly services from October 18, 2024.

The Clark flights will be operated by Airbus A320 aircraft, with the following schedule:

By the end of 2024, Jetstar Asia expects to serve more than 45,000 customers on the Clark route.

Noel Manankil, President and CEO of LIPAD, the manager and operator of Clark International Airport, welcomed the return of Jetstar flights, stating:

Clark Airport has always been a home to Jetstar and we are happy to serve their passengers again. This partnership provides passengers the opportunity to experience a seamless and memorable airport journey.

John Simeone, CEO of Jetstar Asia, emphasized the popularity of the Clark route, saying:

Our services to Clark are back by popular demand, not only for holiday makers but those wanting to visit family and friends.

In addition to the resumption of Clark flights, Jetstar Asia will also launch a new direct route to Krabi, Thailand, commencing on June 7, 2024, with six weekly return services.

The Krabi flights will also be operated by Airbus A320 aircraft, with the following schedule:

The airline will offer over 60,000 low fares annually on this route to the stunning resort town, known for its beaches, limestone cliffs, and outdoor activities.

Simeone highlighted the appeal of Krabi, stating:

Krabi is an exciting new addition for Jetstar Asia, less than two hours away, it’s the perfect holiday destination for those wanting to enjoy stunning white beaches, world-class rock-climbing experiences, marine parks, rainforests and outdoor activities.

To celebrate the new routes, Jetstar Asia is offering special one-way fares from Singapore to Clark starting at SGD 95 and Singapore to Krabi starting at SGD 75, available on jetstar.com for a limited time only.

The airline’s move reinforces its commitment to expanding its Southeast Asian network and providing enhanced connectivity and a wider range of travel options for customers in the region.
