Jetstar first to resume Colombo flights

Jetstar Asia will become the first overseas carrier to resume flights to Colombo from August 1, the date when Sri Lanka reopens to regular tourists, the respected industry website CAPA said yesterday.

It will become the only low-cost carrier to fly direct from Singapore to Colombo. Colombo becomes Jetstar Asia’s 25th destination from Singapore and the first airline in the Qantas Group to fly to Colombo.

The return service will operate four times a week with flights timed to allow more travellers from Europe, Australia and Southeast Asia to access Colombo by transiting through Changi Airport in Singapore.

Jetstar Asia CEO Bara Pasupathi, said 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 said.

“Colombo and its surrounding area have so much to offer, from the sprawling city, to the beautiful beaches, the incredible food and the many significant cultural, religious and historical landmarks.

“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. The flights to Colombo will be operated by Jetstar Asia’s 180-seat A320 with promotional fares.
