Jetstar Asia has received approval to operate Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) services to Singapore from Phuket, Clark, Manila, and Perth, following the city-state’s recent expansion of quarantine-free travel lanes.
Jetstar Asia’s Phuket to Singapore service will commence operation from March 2 with up to four services a week, followed by the introduction of six-weekly from Clark, and seven-weekly from Manila from March 4.
With the recent announcement that Western Australia will reopen its international borders from March 3, Jetstar Asia will also relaunch services from Singapore to Perth from March 11, with up to four-weekly services.
All returning flights from Phuket, Clark, Manila, and Perth to Singapore will be designated as VTL flights.
Jetstar Asia’s CEO, Bara Pasupathi, said in a press statement: “With the introduction of more VTLs, combined with gradual relaxing of quarantine measures for vaccinated travellers and the transition from PCR tests to the less costly ARTs, consumer confidence is improving, and international trips are once again back on people’s radar.”
Customers who book a Jetstar Asia (3K) flight online before April 30, 2022, for travel before August 31, 2023, will be given one fee-free date change as part of Jetstar’s Fly Flexible policy.
