Jetstar Asia’s Second Flight to China Post 2020

This only the second flight to China for Jetstar Asia post 2020. The airline, prior to 2020, used to serve 5 destinations which however still haven’t resumed (except for Haikou). Flight 3K833 from Singapore to Wuxi is a completely new service which wasn’t present in the route map before. These are the destinations that Jetstar Asia (3K) used to serve in china prior to 2020:

  • Haikou
  • Shantou
  • Sanya
  • Xuzhou
  • Guiyang

As for why 3K has chosen to serve Wuxi, the Chinee city is in the larger Shanghai area and has developed into an important production and export hub. Therefore there is the possibility for a substantial business travel demand between Wuxi and Singapore.

This Singapore to Wuxi flight will be operated using the Jetstar Asia only aircraft type, the A320 in a very dense configuration.

These planes can hold up to 186 passengers in an all economy cabin with 6 seats abreast (3-3) so make sure you’ll be ok with the flight time and seat type before booking.
