Scoot to launch Tokyo, Taipei flights
Scoot, Singapore’s new low-cost carrier, has announced plans to fly to Tokyo and Taipei.
The announcement was made by the airline’s CEO, Campbell Wilson, shortly after Scoot’s inaugural flight touched down in Sydney on Tuesday morning.
Speaking to Travel Daily this morning, Wilson said; “Tokyo and Taipei are incredible popular destinations, and we’re excited to be adding them to our network. Taipei’s food and attractions are well-known, whilst Tokyo is a perfect fit with Scoot – it has a serious side but also a touch of quirkiness and uniqueness you’ll find nowhere else. As a former resident of Tokyo, who misses the place very much, I’m especially looking forward to our first flights in October.”
The next phase of Scoot’s expansion gets underway on 12 June, when it commences daily flights to the Golf Coast. Daily services to Bangkok will follow in July and Tianjin in August. Scoot operates a fleet of 402-seat, two-class Boeing 777-200s.
