Scoot celebrates three million passengers

It has only been in the air for just over two years, but Singapore-based airline, Scoot, has already passed three million passsengers – and is growing quickly.

photoOn July 31, Scoot welcomed Ashley Zhang aboard flight TZ3 from Sydney to Singapore, as its 3,000,000th guest.

Airline CEO, Campbell Wilson, said the initial million passengers took a year to achieve, but the latest milestone was reached in half that time – a sign of Scoot’s fast growth and community support in its countries of operation.

To mark the occasion, Ashley and her travelling companion, Mr JJ Gwee, were upgraded to the premium ScootBiz cabin for the flight to Singapore.

And she was also presented with a Scoot travel voucher to the value of A$500.

To celebration Scoot’s growth and latest milestone, the airline announced “a $300 all-in offer’” between Australia and Singapore.

This is a return economy fare – starting at A$300 – including extra baggage, taxes and surcharges

If you are like me and enjoy pampering yourself, Scootbiz ‘all-in’ fares start from A$600.

The travel period for these offers is by March 28 2015.

For residents of Perth,

on Australia’s west coast, the sale will start at noon on August 1 and continue until just before midnight on August 3.

Residents of the east coast centres of the Gold Coast and Sydney have access to the sale from 2pm on August 1 to just before 2am on August 4.
