Jetstar Asia is expanding its coverage in Southeast Asia with the launch of direct flights to three new destinations.

This autumn, the Singapore-based low-cost carrier will launch services to the Indonesian cities of Palembang and Pekanbaru, and Danang in central Vietnam.

Flights to Palembang and Pekanbaru, the second and third largest cities in Sumatra, will start on 29 October and 5 November respectively. Both routes will operate three times a week.

Flights to Danang will then get underway on 27 November, also operating three times a week.

“Indonesia and Vietnam are two of the fastest growing economies in Southeast Asia and with the opening of their domestic aviation markets we’ve seen a growth in demand for new low fare travel opportunities,” said Jetstar Asia’s CEO, Bara Pasupathi.

“The new routes offer Singapore travellers direct access to popular business and leisure destinations, currently only provided by full-service carriers, with great opportunities to connect to the Jetstar Group’s broader network across Southeast Asia.”

All three new routes will be operated using Jetstar’s 180-seat Airbus A320 aircraft. Tickets are already on sale.
