There’s a new face at Scoot, in the Singapore Airlines Group.
Kirsty Lucas has been named National Sales and Partnership Manager, where she will manage exisiting key trade accounts and develop new partnerships as Scoot continues to step up growth in Australia.
Kirsty has more than 10 years travel and tourism industry experience, including a background in sales, marketing and media.
She was the Regional Manager, Australia, at TravMedia and previously held positions in a variety of tourism based businesses, including TFE Hotels and Rottnest Fast Ferries in Western Australia.
General Manager, Jared Simcox, said the appointment was a “direct result of huge growth in trade sales across the region.
“We’re in an accelerated phase of development and I’m thrilled to have someone with Kirsty’s expertise, passion and inventiveness taking the reigns on key initiatives.”
Scoot is gearing up to launch its new long-haul services to Berlin via Singapore on June 20, providing Australians with yet another competitively-priced gateway to Europe.
Using its new-generation Boeing Dreamliners, Scoot already flies in and out of Athens, via Singapore – a service that not only provides Australians with a channel to the stunning Greek Island, but also a well-priced European entry.
Scoot is also now fully on KrisFlyer, the frequent flyer programme for the Singapore Airlines (SIA) Group portfolio of airlines.
Scoot customers can directly earn KrisFlyer miles when they purchase and travel on Scoot’s flights, as well as redeem their KrisFlyer miles for Scoot flights.
Corporate members of SIA’s HighFlyer programme, for small and medium enterprises, can also now earn HighFlyer points when flying on SIA or SilkAir itineraries with connections onto Scoot.
