Scoot passes five million passenger mark

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

Scoot recently welcomed Haji Mohed bin Arshad aboard flight TZ 8 from Singapore to Perth, Australia, as its 5,000,000th guest.scoot-787-per-landing

Mr Haji Mohed received two ScootBiz tickets for travelling to any of Scoot’s 15 destinations, whilst other lucky guests received a pair of Fly tickets and Scoot travel vouchers.

At the same time, Scoot also acknowledged 50 people who had flown with the airline more than 1,000 times and travelled more than 6 million kilometres. Top flyer, Tsai Yuan Yiu, had flown on Scoot 43 times!

Airline CEO, Campbell Wilson, said it was particularly pleasing that the milestones coincided with Singapore’s Golden Jubilee celebrations which Scoot celebrated with a party aboard specially decorated new B787, Maju-lah.

Scoot operates medium and long haul no-frills flights between Singapore and Sydney, Gold Coast, Bangkok, Taipei, Tokyo, Tianjin, Shenyang, Nanjing, Qingdao, Seoul, Hong Kong, Perth, Osaka, Kaohsiung – and soon to Hangzhou and Melbourne.
