People in Travel: Jared Simcox

Meet Scoot’s General Manager for Australia.

Jared Simcox’s background includes three years as Wholesale Travel Manager at Groupon ANZ; experience at Curry Aviation; and a period learning the ropes as a ground handler at airports in New Zealand.

“What really excited me about this role at Scoot, is that this company is out to challenge the status quo.


“Since Scoot’s launch in 2012, the highly visible, yellow liveried and quirky airline, has quickly risen to become a benchmark and trendsetter in the low-cost market segment.

“Winning top award, three years in a row, for best low cost airline, shows we are on the right track.

“And we certainly hope to make a success of our long-haul Athens services, which is Scoot’s first long-haul flight between Asia Pacific and Europe, as well as one of the longest flights operated by a low-cost carrier with flight distance exceeding 10,000km” he added.

This year promises to be a big one for Scoot.

As well as the new link to Europe, sister airline Tigerair (Singapore) will be fully integrated under the Scoot brand by the end of the year, while Scoot will also take delivery of new 787 Dreamliners.

All Scoot’s 787 Dreamliners are equipped with inflight wi-fi, in-seat power outlets and ScooTV streaming inflight entertainment to personal devices – offering constant connectivity and entertainment on board.
