Jetstar Asia launches new route from Singapore to KrabiLegacy

Jetstar Asia is soaring high with its latest addition to its flight network. Last Friday, the airline launched a new route from Singapore to the stunning resort destination of Krabi in southern Thailand, adding over 60,000 seats annually.

The inaugural flight, 3K573, took off from Singapore Changi Airport at 7.32am local time (6.32am Thailand time) and landed in Krabi at 7.52am after a swift one-hour-and-20-minute journey. Operated by a 2012 Airbus A320-200 (registration 9V-JSQ), it returned as flight 3K574, departing Krabi at 8.55am and arriving in Singapore at 11.31am.

Jetstar Asia’s fleet of ten Airbus A320-200s frequently services various Asian destinations. Within the last week, the same aircraft has flown to Bali, Manila, Kuala Lumpur, Haikou, and Phnom Penh.

This Krabi route is the first of three new services Jetstar Asia is launching in June. CEO John Simeone expressed excitement.

“Thailand is an incredibly popular market. Adding beautiful Krabi to our network alongside Bangkok and Phuket is fantastic. Our low fares make it easier than ever for travellers to enjoy all Krabi has to offer.”

The new service operates six times weekly with a split schedule. On Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday, flight 3K571 departs Singapore at 8.10pm, with the return flight 3K572 leaving Krabi at 9.40pm and arriving in Singapore at 12.30am the next day.

On Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday, flight 3K573 departs Singapore at 7.20am, arriving in Krabi at 8.10am. The return flight 3K574 leaves Krabi at 8.50am, landing in Singapore at 11.40am.

This launch is part of a broader expansion, with Jetstar Asia also resuming its Singapore to Clark International Airport route in the Philippines this Sunday, June 16. This service will start with four weekly return flights, increasing to five in October, offering morning and evening options, reported Simple Flying.

In related news, Jetstar is launching direct flights from Queensland‘s Brisbane Airport to Bangkok this December, a route last serviced by Thai Airways (THAI) before its suspension in March 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
