Singapore-based budget carrier Jetstar Asia will increase the number of services it operates to key South-east Asian ports, with the aim to create essential travel links and assist with freight in the region.
In addition to the current services to Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and Manila, Jetstar Asia has reintroduced weekly services to Jakarta, Ho Chi Minh City and Penang since August 10. The airline will also run weekly services to Clark and Medan from the week commencing August 17. Two additional weekly services to Manila will also be operated from August 15.
These services, subject to regulatory approval, are only available to citizens and permanent residents who are returning home, or those with prior approval for travel. Customers must check with the relevant authorities to ensure they are eligible to travel.
All passengers will be required to wear a mask at all times, while crew members will don masks and PPE during the flight. From August 15, all passengers travelling to and from Manila are required to wear a face shield at all times during their journey.
Onboard services will be scaled back with only water being served during the flight. Passengers who have already pre-purchased meals or meal vouchers will be refunded for their purchase.
