Low-cost carrier Jetstar Asia will launch the new Singapore-Osaka service, via Taipei, from July 5, 2010 with a JetSaver Light fare to match.
The one-way fare includes surcharges, fees and taxes is S$198 (US$144). It is on sale until 11.59pm tonight, unless seats sell out prior, for travel between July 5 and November 10, 2010 (except for July 15 to August 31).
A second sale for one-way, all-inclusive fares, from S$248 (US$180), starts at 12am April 23 until 11.59pm April 26, unless seats sell out prior, for travel between July 5 and November 10 (except for August 1 to 31).
The Singapore-Taipei sector of this new service will be on top of Jetstar’s existing daily flight between the Lion City and Taiwan’s capital. It departs at 7am and arrives 11.40am, a more convenient time slot for business travellers to use than the current one that departs at 1.50pm and arrives at 6.30pm.
No budget carrier is yet serving the Taipei-Osaka route. Jetstar’s flights will feature Japanese meal options, Japanese-language inflight magazines and Japanese-speaking crew.
The Qantas subsidiary has been operating daily services between Singapore and Taipei since 2004, with its Australian counterpart operating direct low-fare flights from the Gold Coast and Cairns to both Tokyo and Osaka.
