Singapore Airlines' low-cost offshoot Scoot will fly its latest Boeing 787-9 jet to the Gold Coast from Friday May 1st and move to direct flights to Singapore, dropping the route's current 'Singapore via Sydney' triangle which runs several days a week.
The Gold Coast upgrade also makes Australia an 'all Dreamliner' market for Scoot, as more of the airline's ageing Boeing 777s are put out to pasture.
Scoot already flies the Boeing 787 to Perth and Sydney, and the airline's new Melbourne-Singapore route will launch with five Boeing 787 flights a week from November 1st.
The move from Scoot's current ageing Boeing 777-200 jets to the all-new Dreamliners will be a substantial upgrade with the Boeing 787 offering a quieter and smoother ride with more comfort and less jetlag.
The airline has also outfitted its new planes with new business class seats and inflight Internet.
