Scoot’s foray into US market

Singapore Airlines’ low-cost carrier, Scoot, is now headed for the US – soon after starting its first flight to Europe.

Scoot has announced plans for a new route to Honolulu, Hawaii, via Osaka in Japan.

The announcement came as Scoot finished integrating with its sister low cost carrier, Tigerair Singapore.

Subject to regulatory approval, Scoot aims to start the Singapore-Osaka-Honolulu service by next June as part of an expansion including other new destinations such as Harbin in China; Kuantan and Kuching, Malaysia; and Palembang in Indonesia.

The five new services – along with the previous Tigerair Singapore network – will bring Scoot’s total destination count to 65 across 18 countries – including its recently-started flights to Athens in Europe.

Escape the Ordinary

Discussing the move, Scoot CEO, Mr Lee Lik Hsin, said the airline would adopt the tagline, ‘Escape the Ordinary’, which was relevant to the global market and inspired travel and exploration.

Scoot also rolled out its first A320 aircraft, previously operated by Tigerair and repainted with the Scoot livery.

The Tigerair fleet will be progressively repainted by mid-2018.

To celebrate, the airline also announced a sale at www.flyscoot.com with fares from $99 for Perth to Singapore
