Jetstar’s new direct flights from Perth to Singapore, Bangkok, and Phuket are now on sale as part of the low-cost carrier’s massive expansion of its Western Australian operations.
The airline has stated that it will begin flying up to six times per week between Perth and Singapore, as well as four weekly return flights from Perth to Phuket, beginning in August 2024. Jetstar will also begin flying up to four days per week between Perth and Bangkok beginning in September 2024.

The flights will be flown by Jetstar’s increasing fleet of quieter and more fuel-efficient Airbus A321neo LRs (NEO), with up to four of the new planes headquartered in the west, resulting in more than 330,000 extra low-cost seats between Perth and Southeast Asia. From August 2024, NEO aircraft will also fly Jetstar’s existing Perth to Bali flights.

Jetstar said last month that it will build a new facility in Perth for at least 60 pilots to support its increasing flights to and from the Western Australian capital.
Stephanie Tully, CEO of Jetstar Group, stated that the additional overseas services build on the success of Jetstar’s extremely popular Perth-Bali flights.

“We know West Australians enjoy international travel, and these three new routes to exciting Southeast Asian cities will provide more than 330 thousand additional low-cost international seats each year.”

Rita Saffioti, WA Tourism Minister, said the announcement was just another statement of confidence in Western Australian tourism.

“These new international services simply demonstrate how popular and profitable tourism is in Western Australia.”

“We’re really excited these additional direct flights into Perth are now coming online, providing more opportunity for tourists to travel to our beautiful state, and of course, we expect locals here will also enjoy easier access to these popular Southeast Asian destinations.”

Kate Holsgrove, Chief Commercial and Aviation Officer at Perth Airport, said the new international services are fantastic news for Western Australia.

“More competition and new routes provide Western Australians with lower prices and more options.” These flights will also provide travelers from Asia with an additional direct entry point to Perth, from where they will be able to discover our distinctive regional tourism experiences.”
