    Jetstar Weekly Flights | Phuket and Singapore

    Now that flight restrictions are finally easing, Jetstar Asia Airways has launched a weekly flight between Singapore and Phuket. The first flight departed Singapore Friday evening and arrived at Phuket International Airport an hour and 40 minutes later. The inaugural Jetstar flight was greeted with fanfare by various airport staff including the Deputy Director of Phuket Airport Operations and Maintenance.

    The flight is scheduled weekly to depart from Changi Airport in Singapore at 7:44 pm every Friday. With the one hour time difference, the flight should arrive at gate 11 at Phuket International Airport at 8:24 pm on Friday evenings. The first Jetstar flight actually left the gate in Singapore on time but the take-off was delayed by 9 minutes. Despite the setback though, it landed at 8:28 pm, just a few minutes behind schedule.

    The return flight from Phuket to Singapore is scheduled for a quick turnaround, departing just 1 hour after arrival at 9:30 pm and with the one-hour time difference, the flight lands in Singapore at 12:03 am.

    The debut Jetstar flight joined 2 Thai Airways flights, 2 Singapore Airlines flights, a flight from Emirates, one from Qatar Airways, and 2 private jets to be one of 9 flights total to arrive into Phuket yesterday. While exact passenger numbers for each flight were not released, The Airports of Thailand in Phuket confirmed that 588 total passengers arrived in Phuket by air on Friday.
