Jetstar today announced a new direct Singapore – Osaka Kansai Airbus A330-200 service to commence on 1st November 2012.

Timings are:

JQ63 Singapore 2230 – Osaka Kansai 0600+1  Thursday, Friday, Sunday.
JQ64 Osaka Kansai 1030 – Singapore 1620  Friday, Saturday, Monday.

An additional rotation leaving Singapore on Mondays and returning on Tuesdays will commence on 17th December.

As these flights are under JQ rather than 3K flight numbers the flight numbers will also be used on a Darwin – Singapore Airbus A321 service in order to create a through Australia – Japan service with a Singapore stop – although the airline holds traffic rights for both sectors.

The existing Singapore – Taipei – Osaka and Singapore – Manila – Osaka Jetstar Asia A320 services will continue.
