Scoot, the low-cost arm of the Singapore Airlines Group, has started its third long-haul service – this time to the German capital of Berlin.
The service, which leaves Singapore four times a week, provides yet another well-priced European gateway for people in Asia and Australasia.
Scoot CEO, Mr Lee Lik Hsin, welcomed the continuing growth of the airline’s low-cost long-haul network, following last year’s addition of services to and from Athens and Hawaii.
“Vibrant, creative and steeped in history, we are confident that the city of Berlin will appeal to any market or demographic, and open a new and exciting part of the continent for travellers.”
Scoot currently flies to 65 destinations across 18 countries and territories, with its fleet of 17 Boeing Dreamliners and 24 Airbus A320 family aircraft.
Three more Dreamliners and 39 Airbus A-320neo aircraft have been ordered, with Scoot’s fleet expected to increase to about 70 by 2022.
With the addition of Berlin, the Singapore Airlines Group network in Germany now encompasses four cities, including Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, and Munich, with a total of 29 return services a week.
