Scoot, the new Singapore-based low-cost carrier, will launch flights to Australia’s Gold Coast tonight.

Following its inaugural flight to Sydney a week ago, the new SIA-backed carrier will launch its second route this evening, with flights departing Singapore’s Changi airport at 2345, and arriving in the Gold Coast at 0910 tomorrow morning.

Following tonight’s inaugural service, flights will operate from Singapore five times a week (Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays), departing at 2225. The return service will leave the Gold Coast at 0900 the following day. All flights will be operated using a 402-seat, two-class Boeing 777 aircraft.

“Scoot is excited to launch the first and only direct service between Singapore and the Gold Coast,” said the airline’s CEO, Campbell Wilson. “With such great value airfares and convenience of travel, holidaying in these two destinations will never be the same again.”

Scoot’s expansion will continue next month with the launch of daily flights to Bangkok on 5 July. A four-weekly service to Tianjin will then start on 23 August. Last week Wilson revealed that his airline would also commence services to Tokyo and Taipei later this year.
