Jetstar To Add Flights Between Singapore And Osaka

Jetstar Asia has revealed plans to increase services between Singapore and Osaka, following healthy demand for its international flights to and from Japan. Beginning 25 March 2012, the low cost carrier will launch an additional 4 times weekly service on the route via Manila, complementing its existing Singapore – Taipei – Osaka flights, which will also be increased to a double daily service.

 

Singapore – Manila – Osaka

Flight 3K 763 will depart Singapore at 0200 hrs on Mondays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, arriving in Manila at 0540 hrs before continuing at 0655 hrs to Osaka, where it arrives at 1145 hrs. The return flight, 3K 764, takes off from Kansai International Airport at 1725 hrs for a 2015 hrs landing at Ninoy Aquino International Airport, taking off again at 2125 hrs to arrive back at Changi International Airport at 0055 hrs the next day.

Jetstar Asia will also increase frequencies on its popular Singapore – Taipei – Osaka service, with an additional flight operated daily and schedule changes for the existing 3K 723/724 service, with the outbound flight moving from an evening departure to a red-eye service and the inbound flight becoming an evening service from a red-eye flight.

 

Flight 3K 721 will depart Singapore at 0710 hrs and arrive in Taipei at 1150 hrs, before departing again at 1240 hrs to arrive in Osaka at 1610 hrs. The aircraft returns as flight 3K 722, taking off from Kansai International Airport at 1700 hrs and landing at Taoyuan International Airport at 1900 hrs for a brief stopover, continuing at 1950 hrs for a 0025 hrs next-day arrival into Changi International Airport.

 

Flight 3K 723 takes off from Changi International Airport at 0115 hrs, landing at Taoyuan International Airport at 0600 hrs before continuing at 0655 hrs to Kansai International Airport, where it lands at 1035 hrs. On the return leg, flight 3K 724 departs Osaka at 1230 hrs, arriving in Taipei at 1420 hrs before departing again at 1610 hrs for a 2040 hrs arrival back in Singapore.

 

All flights will be operated by the airline’s 180-seat Airbus A320 aircraft. The move sets Jetstar up to capitalize on the demand for low cost travel in Japan, with a network of short- and medium-haul international flights to connect with and provide traffic feed for Jetstar Japan, its upcoming subsidiary in partnership with Oneworld member Japan Airlines.
