Singapore Airlines-backed Scoot is sizing up new destinations across the Middle East and Europe to serve from its Singapore hub, potentially giving Australian travellers a new low-cost, one-stop option on those longer journeys.
Scoot’s fleet of Boeing 787-9s is capable of flying non-stop from Singapore to London, Scoot CEO Campbell Wilson told Australian Business Traveller earlier this year, although the aircraft currently lack the crew rest bunks typically found on flights of this length.
Wilson affirmed to Singapore’s Today newspaper this week that flights to Europe and the Gulf states were “definitely on our cards” and that the airline was “exploring some options at the moment.”
“We haven’t yet finalised our decision on an announcement yet but it is not too far away,” Wilson added.
Scoot’s Boeing 787s aren’t simply filled with economy seats: there’s a separate ‘ScootBiz’ cabin at the pointy end for business travellers and leisure passengers seeking a little more comfort…
… along with inflight Internet access and in-seat power to keep your phone, tablet and laptop recharged.
