Japan Airlines’ low-cost carrier, Zipair Tokyo, will be expanding its international network with the launch of a weekly service between Tokyo and Singapore on September 7.
Singapore will be the airline’s four destination, alongside Bangkok, Seoul, and Honolulu. The two-way service will be operated on Tuesdays using a Boeing 787 configured aircraft, initially as a weekly service which will be increased to twice weekly from late October.
Flight ZG53 will depart Tokyo Narita at 14.00, and arrive at Singapore’s Changi Airport at 20.25. Return flight ZG54 will take off from Changi at 21.55 and land at Tokyo Narita at 06.05 the next day.
Shingo Nishida, president of Zipair Tokyo, said: “Due to the impact of Covid-19, restrictions on entry into both countries are still in effect, but we hope that our new service to Singapore will provide a new convenient option for those who need to travel to and from Japan for business or pleasure.”
