Jetstar has today launched a new flexible bundle to make the travel experience easier for the growing number of budget conscious business travellers in Asia.
The new FlexiBiz bundle allows business travellers to move their flight earlier or later for free on the same day of travel, take extra carry-on baggage and select an upfront seat at no extra charge.
The FlexiBiz bundle includes:
Free flight change on same day of travel (subject to availability, up until check-in closes)
One carry-on bag (7kg) + one additional under-seat bag
Upfront or standard seat selection (normally a fee)
Credit voucher refund provided if booking cancelled by customer (valid towards a new booking within 6 months of issue)
The bundle can be added to any Jetstar Starter fare for SGD32 and is available for sale from today exclusively through Jetstar’s Business Hub website.
Mr Barathan Pasupathi, CEO of Jetstar Asia, said the airline was responding to feedback from a new segment of business travellers in Asia, who preferred to reduce travel costs and paired value and flexibility at an affordable price.
Asia is experiencing a savvy generation of cost-conscious corporate travellers who prefer to fly without the frills but are often required to make changes to their flights on the day of travel.
“The new FlexiBiz product provides these business travellers with much more flexibility and a few other on-board extras at a good price point.
“On some of our peak hour flights to Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Jakarta, Manila, Yangon and Hong Kong, a significant number of customers are budget-savvy business travellers. We want to grow this segment further by offering a fare tailored to their needs.”
Mr. Pasupathi added that FlexiBiz was an exciting evolution for the airline and would be expecting strong demand from small- and medium-size businesses.
“We’re continually reviewing our business to find innovative ways to appeal to specific market segments while remaining true to our low cost model,” he said.
FlexiBiz fares are available for purchase from today for travel from 12 September 2016 for businesses who have registered at Jetstar’s Business Hub website.
