Scoot, a subsidiary of Singapore Airlines, has announced new routes that will make it possible for Australians to get cheap flights to Asia. Scoot made its first flight to Sydney today and, after the flight touched down, the airline announced their plans to fly to Tokyo and Taipei. Scoot’s flights from Singapore to Sydney will be operated daily and next week they will begin five flights per week from Singapore to Australia’s Gold Coast.
As the inaugural Scoot flight arrived in Sydney this morning, it was greeted with a water cannon salute. Kerrie Mather, Sydney Airport CEO, said that the service the budget carriers offer has stimulated demand for air travel and Scoot’s new service will add an additional 29,000 seats per year. Mather added that Australians now have even greater access to a wide range of destinations and that Scoot is offering not only cheap flights, but great service as well.
