Additional Asia-Europe flights

Low-cost carrier, Scoot, is stimulating passenger traffic between Asia and Europe by preparing to launch a new Athens route.

Starting on June 20, the new service – linking Singapore and the Greek capital – will be Scoot’s first long-haul flight using its fleet of Boeing 787 Dreamliners.

At more than 10,000 kilometres, Scoot says the flight will, in fact, be the longest operated by any low cost carrier (LCC)

The move is also a strategic step by Singapore Airlines Group to boost connectivity through Singapore.

Scoot will fly each way between Singapore and Athens each Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday – leaving Singapore at 0200 and Athens at noon.

When the new service was announced, Chief Executive Officer, Mr Lee Lik Hsin, said the decision to fly to Europe followed requests from the travelling public.
