Upcoming Singapore budget airline Scoot has revealed its first destination – Sydney, Australia.
Starting in June 2012, the new low-cost, long-haul airline will fly daily from Singapore’s Changi Airport to Sydney, Australia. The route will be operated using a Boeing 777 aircraft and add about 400 seats per day to the route.
“Scoot is absolutely delighted that Sydney, one of the world’s great cities, will be our inaugural destination. And as the first true no-frills airline operating nonstop daily between Sydney and Asia, we can’t wait to bring a whole new style of travel, even better airfares and our unique attitude – our Scootitude – to shake things up. Sydney, here we come! “said Campbell Wilson, Scoot’s CEO.
Tickets will be available in the first quarter of 2012 and prices have not yet been revealed. Passengers have a chance to win a pair of tickets for the inaugural flight by entering a contest on the official Scoot Airlines website at http://flyscoot.com/.
In the long-term, Scoot plans to have a fleet of 14 planes by 2016 and operate scheduled flights to India, China, Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
