SINGAPORE — Jetstar Asia will be operating temporary services to and from Manila, Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur for those with written approval, or for citizens and permanent residents returning home, from Tuesday (21 April).

The budget airline said in a press release on Monday that the services, slated from Tuesday until Sunday, include five return services to Singapore from the three destinations.

The airline has scheduled one flight to Manila on Tuesday, one flight to Bangkok each on Wednesday and Saturday, and one flight each to Kuala Lumpur on Thursday and Sunday. Return flights are scheduled from the same destinations on their respective days.

Two of its flights to Bangkok on Wednesday and Saturday are only for cargo.

The flight services are available to only citizens and permanent residents who are returning home, or those with prior written approval for travel, the airline said.

It added that passenger numbers would be reduced to allow safe distancing on board the planes and that in-flight services will be reduced, with only water being served.
