Scoot has commenced operations on new Visakhapatnam-Singapore and Coimbatore-Singapore routes. Scoot offers five-times weekly return flights from Visakhapatnam and daily return flights from Coimbatore. The new routes bring the number of Indian cities served by the airline to seven, including Amritsar, Chennai, Hyderabad, and Tiruchirappalli and Trivandrum. Scoot launched in Trivandrum in May 2019.
The new routes are operated by Scoot’s fleet of narrow-body Airbus A320-family aircraft, and the routes were transferred from sister airline, SilkAir, with increased frequencies on Scoot. This aims to enhance the connectivity of Visakhapatnam and Coimbatore with Singapore and the world, and allows customers the flexibility of more convenient options for international travel at for-value fares.
Calvin Chan, CCO, Scoot, said, “It has been an exciting year for Scoot in India. Having launched in Trivandrum earlier in May, we are pleased to round off this year by bringing our offerings to customers in two new cities, Visakhapatnam and Coimbatore. At Scoot, we work very hard to drive our vision of customer-centricity, and we are deeply focused on providing our customers greater value and travel opportunities, and the flexibility to pay only for what they need with add-ons customised to their needs. The two route launches strengthen our India network, and allow us to offer an escape from the ordinary to even more Indian travellers, at attractive prices.”
Customers from India can now book their travel seamlessly from both cities to Singapore, and connect to 60 other destinations across Scoot’s network, including cities in Australia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, and more. They can also connect onwards to other destinations on the Singapore Airlines and SilkAir network. Scoot customers with connecting flights within a single booking with Singapore Airlines and/or SilkAir will not be required to pass through immigration in Singapore and their checked baggage will also be delivered to their final destination.
From all its seven India points, Scoot has launched a promotional sale to over 30 destinations on its network, with one-way tax-inclusive FLY fares starting from as low as INR 4,900, and can be booked from FlyScoot.com and the Scoot mobile app.
