To satisfy the growing demands, Scoot has announced additional flights, new routes, and the reinstatement of previously suspended services.
Scoot will begin twice-weekly flights to Lombok and Makassar, Indonesia, on 16 October and 24 October 2022, respectively. Furthermore, twice-weekly flights to Yogyakarta and Pekanbaru will restart on 15 October and 24 October, respectively. Scoot’s existing network in Indonesia will be expanded to eight cities as a result of these additions.
Scoot consumers should also expect additional flights to North Asia as Hong Kong, Japan, and Taiwan continue to ease their border restrictions. Scoot now runs four flights per week to Hong Kong, daily nonstop flights to Tokyo (Narita) and Seoul (Incheon), five flights per week to Osaka, and three flights per week to Jeju.
Scoot will increase the frequency of flights to Jeju to five times per week beginning at the end of October, and its Osaka service will be increased to daily. Seasonal nonstop flights between Singapore and Hokkaido (Sapporo) will also be launched from November 2022 to February 2023.
Scoot also operates flights from Taipei to Tokyo, Sapporo, and Seoul. Singapore-Taipei-Tokyo flights will be increased to daily service by the end of October 2022, while three-times-weekly Singapore-Taipei-Sapporo flights and five-times-weekly Singapore-Taipei-Seoul flights will be reinstated.
As a result, Scoot will provide 18 weekly flights to Taipei.
Scoot will boost the frequency of themed flights on the Pikachu Jet following the positive response to the Pokémon Air Adventures, cooperation with The Pokémon Company. Beginning in November, the Pikachu Jet will run three fixed routes each month on the Singapore-Tokyo, Singapore-Taipei-Tokyo, and Singapore-Taipei-Seoul routes, giving Pokémon enthusiasts additional opportunities to enjoy the unique flights on their next holiday.
Scoot has recently restarted weekly flights into Fuzhou and increased the frequency to twice weekly since 26 September. Scoot has also started flights into Hangzhou on 3 October. It will also begin new services to Zhengzhou from 12 October 2022 and Wuhan from 13 October 2022 and increase frequency to Tianjin to twice weekly from 11 October 2022.
Before the pandemic, Scoot had 21 destinations in Greater China, nearly half of which would be resumed by mid-October.
“North Asia has long been an important market for us, with many intriguing places to fulfil our clients’ wanderlust,” said Scoot CEO Leslie Thng.
Scoot is thrilled to connect even more passengers to the area, especially Greater China, with travel demand staying strong since the removal of travel restrictions.
“It has been ten years since our first flight, and we are determined to continue to deliver unique travel experiences at low costs for the foreseeable future.”
