Scoot launches Bangkok flights
Singapore’s new low-cost carrier, Scoot, today launches flights to Bangkok.
The new daily service will depart Singapore Changi airport’s Terminal 2 at 1725 on Thursday 5 July, arriving at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi airport at 1845. The return flight leaves Bangkok at 2000, getting back into Singapore at 2315. All flights will be operated using Scoot’s Boeing 777-200 aircraft.
“While our focus remains on medium- to long-haul destinations, Bangkok fills a window when our aircraft would otherwise be on the ground, allowing us to spread overheads across a broader base and keep airfares down across all destinations in our network,” said Scoot’s CEO, Campbell Wilson.
“Of course, Bangkok is a fantastic destination in its own right, and our service provides some great connections with other routes, so we’re all very excited to be adding it to our network,” he added.
The Bangkok flights follow the launch of Scoot services to Sydney and the Gold Coast last month. Flights to Tianjin will get underway in August, while the airline is also planning to commence services to Tokyo and Taipei.
