is to launch flights to Bangkok, Thailand with the introduction of two daily flights commencing March 23, 2005.
To celebrate the new route Jetstar Asia is offering 1,000 free seats and
special launch period fares starting from just S$28 each way for bookings made
before 16 March, travelling through May 27th.
"Bangkok remains one of the top business and tourist destinations in the region, and is an incredibly popular destination with Singaporeans," said Jetstar Asia's head
of marketing, Ms. Dorit Grueber. "From weekend treats to week-long shopping trips, the demand for travel to the Thai capital has continued to rise throughout the past
several years and we're confident of being able to help even more people in Singapore experience the delights, adventures and wonderful cultural offerings that
Bangkok provides in such abundance," she added.
To accommodate the flights to Bangkok each day, Jetstar Asia
is suspending its daily service between Singapore and Pattaya.
"We were thrilled to be the first international carrier serving Pattaya and certainly look forward to resuming those services at some point,"
remarked Greg Thompson, VP Operations. "With a limited number of aircraft available to us, we made the tough decision to redirect our assets towards serving a
destination that continues to see growth in demand, and we look forward to continue flying to Thailand, but now via daily flights to Bangkok."
The free seats are available only for bookings made via the
Jetstar Asia website and will be offered on a first-come first-served basis. Bookings in general can be made via the
Jetstar Asia website at www.jetstarasia.com; the Singapore call centre at 6822 2288 or by contacting Jetabout Holidays and Chan Brothers Travel.
