Changi Airport Jetstar News Travel VTL

Jetstar loads its Singapore VTL flights to 29 October 2022

All three Singapore-based carriers have now revealed their VTL flight schedules for the upcoming summer season, with Jetstar adding its quarantine-free options on five routes including Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and Melbourne.

Back in mid-December last year Singapore Airlines and Scoot added their quarantine-free flight schedules through to late October 2022, with several other carriers also confirming their plans over the last few weeks, and now it’s Jetstar’s turn to reveal its designated VTL services for the upcoming season.

The Qantas Group low-cost carriers, actually operating as Jetstar (Australia) and Singapore-based Jetstar Asia, will together maintain six VTL routes during the upcoming IATA northern summer season from 27th March to 29th October 2022:

  • Bangkok to Singapore: 5/week
  • Darwin to Singapore: 2/week
  • Kuala Lumpur to Singapore: 7/week
  • Melbourne to Singapore: 6/week
  • Phnom Penh to Singapore: 4/week
  • Singapore to Kuala Lumpur: 7/week

Overall this represents a total of over 950 VTL flights during the seven-month period.

How Jetstar shows VTL flights

Like Singapore Airlines, Scoot and several other airlines, Jetstar marks its designated VTL flights through the search results on its website.

Jetstar highlights its designated VTL flights with a yellow note

Note that on some routes, like Kuala Lumpur, Jetstar is operating non-VTL flights alongside VTL ones, so be sure to select only the marked services to travel quarantine-free under the programme.



 


 

Bangkok to Singapore

Jetstar had originally planned to fly from Bangkok to Singapore under VTL rules five times a week when it first launched quarantine-free services on the route, however not all flights transpired and until mid-February the airline operates three times per week.
