Popular Airlines in Singapore
Scoot is headquartered in Singapore. The airline flies to 23 destinations all over the world, and has 25 routes. Scoot commenced operations in 2012, and they currently have 12 jets in their fleet. The slogan of the airline is "Get Outta Here!".
Scoot have a two letter IATA code that is TZ, and currently also promote the sales, services and operations of the newly merged Tigerair (Singapore) as if they were one and the same carrier. Both of which currently have their main hubs from T2 in Changi Airport Singapore. It was the November 1st 2011 when Scoots owners Singapore Airlines (SIA) publically launched Scoot into the market as Singapore's own new Low Cost, Long Haul Carrier (LCC) initially by utilising old Singapore Airlines planes and old SIA onboard product. This would soon change though as Singapore Airlines being smart knew that they could not just make a lower cost cut down copy of Singapore Airlines, they needed to create a whole new brand. Scoot set out as the brand to offer the impeccable delivery of service just like it’s parent Singapore Airlines (IATA code SQ) is renowned for, but with a more contemporary personality that allowed passengers to only pay for the products and services that they wanted. This brand could not diminish or tarnishing the good name that the Singapore Airlines brand has, especially if something should ever go wrong. So to do this task Singapore Airlines appointed Wilson Campbell as Scoots CEO and gave Scoot their very own management team from the outset. By cutting costs and creating cheaper long haul fares Scoot appeals to a greater audience, allowing customers the ability to be more spontaneous, on a voyage of discovery to new and fresh connections, destinations and experiences. In Scoot’s words they call this Scootitude™. Since their first flight in 2012 Scoot have grown from and handful of destinations across Asia-Pacific on secondhand planes to an airline that from the 20 June 2017 will also be operating to the southernmost European gateway Athens (IATA CODE ATH) with brand new Boeing 787 Dreamliners bringing the total to 23 destinations. The initial growth rate of Scoot in terms of destinations served has not been as fast as other LCC’s. This is because Scoot needs to operate an all-widebody fleet that gives them the scale in passenger numbers required to make long haul journeys possible, but also allowed Scoot the space on board to to create and add paid for amenities such as in-seat power and fairly comfy seats. To do this they needed to have an all Boeing Dreamliner fleet and they could only expand as and when Boeing were able to deliver aircraft to them. In 2015 Scoot was named by Skytrax as Asia/Pacific's Best Low Cost Airline. Scoot have used social media very effectively to spread the news about their services with their ‘Get Outta Here, Scootitude’ allowing people to travel much further with no-frills or a user pays system. Scoot are also leading the way with many products not normally seen on LCC’s being made available to those who want them. Scoot now offers Wi-Fi connectivity that is available onboard all of their 787 services whenever the aircraft is cruising above 10,000 ft. Wi-Fi connectivity is currently not available over Chinese airspace due to regulatory restrictions. All of the meals paid for or not are halal certified and a selection of premium meals are available via pre-ordering.
Scoot now operates from four hubs with Taipei’s International Airport (IATA Code TPE) being their second hub. From Taipei they operate direct non-stop services to Tokyo, Taipei to Osaka, Taipei to Sapporo in Japan, Taipei to Incheon in Seoul South Korea and of course to Singapore’s Changi airport.
Bangkok is Scoots third largest hub as through both their merger with Tigerair and a joint venture with Thailand's Nok Air, Scoot have considerable capacity now on the Singapore to Bangkok route.
