Scoot reveals its four fare bundles, from business to seat-only

Update | Scoot will launch on June 25 – click here for all the details.

Previous | Low-cost Singapore startup Scoot has revealed the four types of fares to be offered when the airline launches in June.

Scoot says that the actual prices you'll pay for these fares, including Sydney-Singapore and Gold Coast-Singapore, are "imminent".

Things kick off with a pure no-frills airfare – a seat from A to B – branded Fly. "No bells, no whistles, just a fare" says the airline.

There's a predictable raft of add-one extras such as meals, choosing your seat, priority boarding, extra legroom (up to 35 inches compared to the standard 31 inches), even buying an on-board 'comfort kit' – in other words, if Scoot can sell it you'll be able to buy it.

FlyBag partners the basic airfare with 15 kilograms of check-in luggage, while FlyBagEat adds – go on, take a wild guess... yes, it adds a meal!

ScootBiz rounds out the foursome with a spot in the 32 seat Premium cabin plus:

  • "at least 38 inches of legroom" in a leather seat that's 22 inches wide with an 8 inch recline and footrest
  • preferred seat selection
  • fast-track check-in at Scoot's dedicated ScootBiz counter 
  • priority boarding
  • an iPad for in-flight entertainment
  • in-seat power
  • up to two free meals, with drinks, depending on the flight
  • 15kg or two bags of carry-on baggage
  • 20kg of checked luggage
  • a comfort kit on overnight flights

However, there won't be any points, perks or KrisFlyer privileges, even if you belong to the KrisFlyer programme of Scoot parent Singapore Airlines.

Scoot won’t be part of Star Alliance or even have a frequent flyer program “in the beginning, although whether that happens in years to come, time will tell” Scoot CEO Campbell WIlson tells Australian Business Traveller. “But we want to walk before we run.”
