Jetstar Asia plans to raise frequencies to seven destinations as it adds two Airbus A320 aircraft to its fleet.

The carrier will add four weekly flights on the Singapore-Medan and Singapore-Jakarta services, raising their frequencies to 10 and 25 times weekly. Its Singapore-Denpasar service will increase from five to seven times weekly. The additional services will be operated by its subsidiary Valuair.

Frequencies on the Singapore-Shantou and Singapore-Hangzhou services will be raised to four and five times weekly respectively, as the airline adds a weekly flight on both routes.

The airline will also introduce a thrice weekly nonstop Singapore-Siem Reap service, to replace the existing Singapore-Phnom Penh-Siem Reap service, which has the same frequency. Flights between Singapore and Phnom Penh, however, will continue to be served daily, says its spokeswoman.

Changes to the schedule will take place from 27 October, with the exception of Hangzhou, which occurs on 18 November.

Jetstar Asia's chief executive Bara Pasupathi adds that in financial year of 2013, the carrier will operate 19 aircraft.
