Scoot announced its plans to spread its wings even farther, specifically to its second European and third long-haul destination: Berlin, by the second half of 2018. The Singapore-Berlin flights will be available four times within a week and will be operated with Boeing 787 Dreamliners (subject to regulatory approval). Berlin will be the SIA Group’s fourth destination in Germany, after Düsseldorf, Frankfurt and Munich.
According to Lee Lik Hsin, CEO of Scoot: “Scoot’s merger with Tigerair Singapore earlier this year has greatly strengthened our position, standing us in good stead to launch and sustain our long-haul operations. Athens has lived up to our expectations while bookings for Honolulu have been very promising.”
As of now, Scoot’s route network comprises 62 destinations across 16 countries, with services to Honolulu launching in December, and Kuantan flights commencing in February 2018. Currently, Scoot operates a fleet of 16,787 Dreamliners and 23 Airbus A320 family aircraft, with four more Boeing 787 Dreamliners and 39 Airbus A320neo aircraft on order.
