Jetstar Asia has secured approval to operate Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) flights to Singapore from Penang, Da Nang, Ho Chi Minh City, and Denpasar, expanding the airline’s existing VTL services to 13 destinations.
These additional services are mounted in response to Singapore’s expanded VTL scheme as well as Vietnam, Malaysia and Bali moving to allow quarantine-free entry for vaccinated travellers.
Jetstar Asia’s CEO, Bara Pasupathi, said: “With the gradual and safe easing of quarantine requirements, combined with replacing PCR tests with the less-costly ART, we are slowly removing the barriers to international travel, which in turn is helping restore consumer confidence.”
Acknowledging that many have missed travelling and are looking forward to reconnect with family and friends, he said: “We’re confident the safe relaxation of border measures, combined with our incredible low fares, will ensure international travel will once again be back on our customers’ radars.”
Sales for the new VTL services have opened since March 18.
