Jetstar Asia Airways is a Singapore based low-cost airline. Jetstar Asia Airways is headquartered at Changi Airport, Singapore. Jetstar Asia Airways was launched in 2004 and it is one of the offshoots of the parent company Jetstar Airways which is the low-cost subsidiary airline of Australian Qantas Airline. The airline operates services to regional destinations in Southeast Asian countries such as Vietnam, Thailand, Philippines, Malaysia, Cambodia, and Myanmar. Other East Asian regional destinations include Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Japan. The Jetstar Asia Airways fleet consists of only Airbus A320-200 and consists of 18 aircrafts in total.
Checked baggage is not included in basic fares for Jetstar - if you need to check in luggage make sure to add this option while booking, it's more expensive to add later. Jetstar allows passengers to add checked luggage from 15kg to 40kg to their tickets for an additional charge.
Jetstar has a weight limit of 7kg/15lbs for carry-on baggage. Each passenger is allowed one bag per person. Note that Jetstar are normally quite strict with their carry-on baggage policy, if your cabin baggage weighs over 7kg you may have to pay an additional fee.
Passengers may purchase food and beverages on board from the Jetstar Cafe menu. Menus vary depending on the flight length and destination. On Jetstar Asia flights, both cash and credit card payments are accepted. Passengers who have added a Plus, Max or Flex bundle to the Starter fare will normally include a meal.
Jetstar Asia Airways only has bassinets fitted on international flights on Boeing 787 aircrafts. Please contact the airline as soon as possible to request a bassinet. Bassinets can only be requested for infants travelling without an allocated seat.
While Jetstar Asia itself does not have a frequent flyer or mileage program, passengers with Jetstar can sign up for membership of the Qantas Frequent Flyer program to earn points and miles for tickets used on select fare types. Qantas Frequent Flyer is free for most people apart from residents of Australia and New Zealand who must pay a sign-up fee to use the service.
Jetstar Asia Airways has several check-in counters at the airport that normally open 3 hours before the scheduled departure time.
