When Two Airlines Become One

Tigerair Singapore is bidding farewell as the airline’s last flight departed Singapore for Tiruchirappalli at 11:05 p.m. on 24 July 2017. From now on, all previous Tigerair flights will be operated under the Scoot brand and Scoot flights will operate under the TR flight designator code. This marks the completion of the Scoot-Tigerair integration process that began last May, when the airlines were brought under a common holding company, Budget Aviation Holdings.

Scoot’s Chief Commercial Officer, Leslie Thng with Scoot’s CEO, Lee Lik Hsin and Scoot’s Chief Operating Officer, Ho Yuen Sang, celebrating the merger to the single Scoot brand.


Scoot’s CEO, Lee Lik Hsin states: “As we come to the end of Tigerair’s journey, we open up a brand new chapter for Scoot. The enhanced Scoot will be more spunky, sassy and promises to create more travel opportunities for our guests.”

In conjunction with the celebration of the single brand, Lee also disclosed the five new destinations that Scoot will begin flying by June next year. Among them are Honolulu, Scoot’s maiden USA destination and Harbin in Northeast China, along with short-haul destinations which are Kuching, Kuantan and Palembang.
