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.
