New budget airline flight operating between Tokyo and Singapore
The service was launched on Sep 7.
Although travel to Japan is restricted due to the ongoing pandemic, there’s a more affordable option for those who wish to do so in the future.
On Sep 7, ZIPAIR Tokyo launched its new service between Tokyo Narita and Singapore. It is the first budget airline to operate a non-stop service on this route.
According to a press release by the company, weekly Tuesday flights have currently been scheduled between both cities from now until Oct 26, but this is subject to government approvals.
ZIPAIR provides two types of airfares: ZIP Full-Flat Value and Standard Value, which offer different classes of service.
For a one-way trip from Singapore to Tokyo, prices of the ZIP Full-Flat Value tickets range from $649 to $5,149 while Standard Value tickets range from $195 to $3,826.
Airfares will change depending on the availability of seats in each flight.
ZIPAIR also has the U6 Standard Value fare for children under the age of seven, which allows children (including infants under the age of two) to reserve a seat. Their tickets will only cost a fixed price of $65 for a one-way trip.
Once customers have booked their flights on the ZIPAIR website or at the ZIPAIR Contact Center, changing of flight dates and refunds will not be permitted.
Shingo Nishida, the president of ZIPAIR Tokyo, said: “Due to the impact of COVID-19, restrictions on entry into both countries are still in effect, but we hope that our new service to Singapore will provide a new convenient option for those who need to travel to and from Japan for business or pleasure.”
