Just $66 to get to Okinawa on Jetstar Asia!

Jetstar Asia has announced the return of its direct service to the subtropical island of Okinawa in southern Japan, with one-way tickets going as low as SGD66.

The three-weekly service, slated to commence on 17 November (pending regulatory approval) to coincide with the start of the year-end school holidays, will be Singapore’s only scheduled connection to the popular holiday destination amongst locals throughout the year.

Jetstar Asia listened to customers

The launch of the new scheduled service is also the result of customer feedback.

In 2014, Jetstar Asia first provided charter services to Naha Airport in Okinawa, making the airline the first low-fares carrier to fly direct between the two cities.

As part of Jetstar’s ongoing customer engagement process, the airline frequently polls its ‘Jetstar Customer Panel’ of over 35,000 customers across Singapore, Australia, New Zealand and Japan, to gauge where demand is.

Okinawa emerged as Singapore’s top choice, with an overwhelming majority over other popular beach and city holiday options, according to Jetstar Asia’s CEO.

Okinawa is the largest of 160 islands between Japan and Taiwan.

Okinawa is also known for its history, traditional culture, crafts and cuisine. The island is home to ancient castles listed as UNESCO World Heritage sites.

The islanders are also world-class masters of traditional crafts including distilling, glass making and pottery making.

According to the airline, 36,000 Singaporeans travel to Japan every year. 8.77 million travelers arrive in Okinawa every year as well.
