The inaugural Jetstar Asia flight from Singapore to Sanya, China – the first of two return services a week – departed this morning at 7.00am from Singapore Changi Airport and is scheduled to arrive at 9.50am at Sanya International Airport

Jetstar’s inaugural flight today will further showcase Hainan island also known as the ‘Hawaii of the East’ as a tourism destination among Singaporeans, said Jetstar Asia CEO Barathan Pasupathi.

“Our first flights from Singapore to Sanya are operating close to 90 per cent load factor and we are encouraged by our customers and our travel partners’ reception to our flight.
“As the only low fares airline flying this route direct, visitors and leisure travellers from Singapore will be able to take advantage of more low fares options to Hainan.

“With the two new services to Sanya, Jetstar’s network in Hainan island has deepened as visitors to the island will now have six weekly services from either Haikou or Sanya to fly to Singapore.

Sanya is also a cultural delight with the famous Nanshan Temple which showcases the magnificient Golden Jade Kwan-Yin statue.
