Jetstar Asia is planning to resume its Singapore – Darwin services as early as mid-December 2021. A travel corridor between Singapore and Australia is expected to open then.
The Singapore-Darwin route was first launched in 2008. Over 1.2 million visitors have flown between the two cities during that time. After a two-year suspension, Jetstar Asia is preparing to return to Australia. This will start with Darwin and with additional Australian routes planned for 2022.
The thrice-weekly services between Singapore and Darwin are available from 20 December 2021. This will be subject to Regulatory and Government approval.
This announcement follows Qantas Group’s international restart plan which includes Jetstar Airways resuming services between Melbourne and Singapore from 19 December 2021, pending government and regulatory approvals.
Jetstar’s Fly Flexible policy allows customers who book JQ or 3K flights on jetstar.com before 31 December 2021 for travel before 30 June 2022 to make one fee-free date change.
Jetstar’s Fly Well safety measures offer an added layer of protection. These measures demonstrate the airline’s commitment to keeping its people and customers safe.
“With Singapore’s strong vaccination rate and Australia on track to see 80 per cent of the population vaccinated by the end of the year, we’re starting to plan the restart of our international flights between these COVID-safe destinations. We will remain flexible, but based on the pace of the vaccine rollout, we want to make sure we’re ready to reconnect family and friends and provide our customers with more exciting destinations, such as the ever popular Top-End, as soon as possible.Bara Pasupathi, Jetstar Asia CEO
