Through this operation, Jetstar becomes the only low-cost carrier (LCC) to fly between Singapore and Colombo four times a week on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from July 1st.
Accordingly, Colombo becomes Jetstar Asia’s 25th destination from Singapore and the first airline in the Qantas Group to fly to the popular hotspot.
According to reports, the return service will operate four times a week with flights timed to allow more travelers from Europe, Australia and Southeast Asia to access this must-see destination by transiting through Changi Airport in Singapore.
Jetstar Asia CEO, Bara Pasupathi has been quoted as saying that Sri Lanka frequently topped the most desired holiday destination lists and Colombo was the perfect gateway to this amazing country.
“As we face an ever-changing aviation and tourism landscape, Jetstar Asia is committed to continuing to open up exciting new destinations for our customers,” Pasupathi has said.
“Colombo and its surrounding area have so much to offer. With our low fares, we’re excited to be able to open up this incredible destination to ensure more people experience all that it has to offer. This market has so much potential. We are proud to be working with CAG in Singapore and Hayleys PLC (General Sales Agent for Jetstar Asia) in Sri Lanka, to expand the Jetstar network and continue to grow LCC traffic out of Singapore.”
The continuous growth in Sri Lanka’s tourism industry and it’s business environment has resulted in many international airlines commencing flights to Sri Lanka. Also, the government of Sri Lanka has given priority to the development of the country’s domestic aviation sector with the development of airports. Foreign businesses/investors could therefore confidently explore business opportunities in Sri Lanka.
