Jetstar Asia takes to the skies – and beaches – of Okinawa
Singapore’s first & only direct low-fares connection, all year long
Jetstar Asia has announced the return of its direct service to the subtropical island of Okinawa in southern Japan, with one-way tickets going as low as SGD66 from today.
The three-weekly service, slated to commence on 17 November* to coincide with the start of the year-end school holidays, will be Singapore’s only scheduled connection to the popular holiday destination amongst locals throughout the year.
The launch of the new scheduled service is also the result of customer feedback.
In 2014, Jetstar Asia first provided charter services to Naha Airport in Okinawa, in partnership with Okinawa Tourist Services, making the airline the first low-fares carrier to fly direct between the two cities.
Okinawa, the largest of 160 islands between Japan and Taiwan, is an island-hopper’s dream destination. With many idyllic spots available for snorkelling, diving and ocean walking, travellers will enjoy all sorts of marine activities.
For travellers looking for a relaxing holiday, Okinawa is also known for its history, traditional culture, crafts and cuisine. The island is home to ancient castles listed as UNESCO World Heritage sites. The islanders are also world-class masters of traditional crafts including distilling, glass making and pottery making.
From 17 November 2017, Jetstar customers will be able to get to their new favourite Japanese destination in Okinawa in just 5 hours and 15 minutes.
The new service will be operated by Jetstar Asia’s 180-seat A320. Promotional fares are available for purchase from SGD66 from Singapore today.
One-way Economy Starter Fares** from Singapore starts from SGD179.
The service will see Jetstar Asia operate up to 20 services a week to Japan which includes Osaka. From Japan, customers can connect to the rest of Japan through sister airline Jetstar Japan, which boasts the largest domestic footprint amongst low-cost carriers.
Jetstar Japan currently operates nine services a week to Naha in Okinawa from Narita, Nagoya and Osaka in Japan.
