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 Café menu. Menus will vary depending on flight length, and destination. On Jetstar Asia flights, both cash and credit card payments are accepted. Passengers who have added a Plus, Max or Flexibiz bundle to the Starter fare, a meal or in-flight voucher may be included, depending on the flight. In-flight vouchers can be used to purchase duty-free items from Jetshop.
Jetstar Asia Airways is the most reliable and convenient airline. I recently took a flight from Singapore to Taiwan. I think it provides an excellent value in terms of ambiance, environment and service at such a low cost. A true value for money!
I sometimes fail to understand why airlines charge so much for nearer destinations. Jetstar Asia Airways is one airline that provides all the comforts of an international airline at such reasonable fares. I would regard its fares to be truly ‘fair’!
Jetstar Asia Airways is my first choice for travel in Far East and South East countries. Reason being, an absolute qualitative service at highly reasonable fares. After my first flight with Jetstar Asia Airways from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur, I think other airlines are unethically overcharging their passengers for the service Jetstar Asia Airways provides at a reasonably lower fare. In my opinion, Jetstar Asia Airways is the best regional deal for an air travel.
A. 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.
Jetstar Asia Airways mileage program ‘Qantas Frequent Flyer’ is available to all passengers. Miles are earned based on seat class, air ticket fare, and distance travelled. The miles that are accumulated on the air ticket can be redeemed to upgrade to a higher class on selected Jetstar Asia Air flights.
Jetstar Asia Airways has several check-in counters at the airport that open 3 hours before the scheduled departure time.
