Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Thursday, 2 July 2009

Jetstar Asia has launched new daily direct services to Penang. The Malaysian island is Jetstars 17th destination from Singapore and 4th Malaysian city now served through its expanding intra Asia network.

The flights operated with A320 aircraft expand Jetstars weekly flights between Singapore and Malaysia to 88 times weekly.

Jetstar also operates to Kuala Lumpur up to three times daily, Kuching daily and Kota Kinabalu 4 times weekly from Singapore.

From 1 October 2009 Jetstar services on the Singapore-Penang route will become double daily with a total of 14 weekly flights.

Jetstars Singapore-Penang all inclusive fares (Jetsaver Light) are available from Sin$ 48 or RM 95 one way.

This marks a significant step in expanding tourism between Singapore and Penang, especially when Jetstar Asia increases to twice daily flights in October. The additional flight not only increases commercial opportunities, but also creates more opportunities for friends and family to visit each other, said Yang Amat Berhormat Lim Guan Eng, Chief Minister of Penang. We definitely anticipate more Singaporeans to visit the food city of Malaysia with increased accessibility, connectivity and attractive low fares.
