JETSTAR is making further inroads into the Chinese market with the launch of a daily Singapore–Beijing service starting November 24.
Using an Airbus A330-200 aircraft with a two-class seating configuration, the Singapore–Beijing flights, codeshared with Qantas Airways, will be an extension of Jetstar’s Melbourne-Singapore service.
The move comes on the back of a new thrice-weekly Singapore-Ningbo service starting September 9 (TTG Asia e-Daily, July 11).
Jetstar CEO, Bruce Buchanan, said: “Beijing represents a critical step in the growth of our brand in China, and the continued rollout of our Pan Asian strategy.”
The new flights will offer Australia-based travellers a one-stop service to Beijing, Jetstar’s sixth destination in China after Guilin, Haikou, Hangzhou, Ningbo and Shantou.
