Jetstar Asia recently doubled the frequency of its Singapore-Penang flights to twice a day.
The route was launched on July 1 and marked the 17th destination for the low-cost airline that serves four Malaysian cities – Kuala Lumpur, Kuching, Kota Kinabalu and Penang.
“The Jetstar service on the Singapore-Penang route will expand to double daily or 14 times weekly,” said Jetstar Asia chief executive officer Chong Phit Lian in a media statement.
“This service will create real low-fare access for Singaporeans and the growing number of passengers travelling through Singapore on the Jetstar and Qantas (a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Jetstar Group) network.
“Malaysia is a vital player in Jetstar’s growing Pan Asian network and we are thrilled to begin our new daily service to the historic city of Penang,” she added. – The Star
