Scoot, the low-cost arm of the Singapore Airlines group (SIA) has announced plans for another long-haul service to Europe.

From the second half of 2018, Scoot expects to fly four times a week between Singapore and Germany’s capital city, Berlin.

With Scoot’s connections to much of Asia and Australia, the flights will open up yet another corridor into Europe.

And, like it’s existing service to and from Athens, the new Berlin link will feature Scoot’s acclaimed Boeing 787 Dreamliners, subject to regulatory approval.

The Berlin link will be the group’s fourth destination in Germany.

Singapore Airlines planes currently fly into and out of Düsseldorf, Frankfurt and Munich.

American market too

The announcement of the Berlin corridor comes just as Scoot is set to also break into the American market with flights to Honolulu in Hawaii.

In February, Scoot will also add Kuantan, Malaysia to its destination list.

Chief Executive Officer, Mr Lee Lik Hsin, said Scoot’s position as a long-haul flyer had strengthened following its merger with TigerAir Singapore.

“Athens has lived up to expectations, while bookings for Honolulu have been very promising.

“We are excited to bring our unique Scootitude to Berlin and can’t wait to launch those great value fares that Scoot is known for”.

Scoot intends to launch sales for Berlin in the first quarter of 2018.

Scoot has a fleet of 16 Dreamliners and 23 Airbus A320’s – with a further four Dreamliners and 39 Airbus A320neo aircraft on order.
