Vietnamese Expansion For Jetstar Asia

Jetstar Asia is embarking on a Vietnamese expansion to meet growing regional travel demand. The Singapore-based low cost carrier has announced that it will launch a new 4 times weekly service between the Lion City and Hanoi, as well as add a third daily Singapore – Ho Chi Minh City flight.

 

Singapore – Hanoi Flights From 15 December 2011

Operating on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays, flight 3K 543 will depart Singapore at 0935 hrs, arriving in Hanoi at 1200 hrs. The return flight, 3K 544, takes off from Noi Bai International Airport at 1240 hrs to land back at Changi International Airport at 1705 hrs.

 

New Daily Afternoon Singapore – Ho Chi Minh City Flight

Beginning 18 August 2011, flight 3K 553 will depart Changi International Airport at 1120 hrs, arriving at Tan Son Nhat International Airport at 1225 hrs. The aircraft then operates the return flight 3K 554, taking off from Ho Chi Minh City at 1305 hrs and landing back in Singapore at 1600 hrs. 

 

Jetstar Asia will operate its 180-seat Airbus A320 aircraft on both routes. The addition of a second Vietnamese gateway to its regional network is expected to bolster the airline’s position in the market against rivals AirAsia and Tiger Airways, where it can leverage on traffic fed by its Vietnamese affiliate, Jetstar Pacific.
