Nov 6, 2019: Scoot, the low-cost arm of the Singapore Airlines (SIA) Group, is offering five-times weekly flights on the Visakhapatnam-Singapore route and daily flights on the Coimbatore-Singapore route.
Operating with its fleet of narrow-body Airbus A320-family aircraft, the new routes bring the number of Indian cities served by the airline to seven, including Amritsar, Chennai, Hyderabad, and Tiruchirappalli and Trivandrum.
The inaugural flights took off from Singapore on October 27.
The routes were transferred from sister airline, SilkAir, with increased frequencies on Scoot.
From Singapore, customers from both cities can 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.
In addition, 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.
“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. 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,” said Calvin Chan, chief commercial officer, Scoot.
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 its website and the Scoot mobile app.
Scoot recently shifted operations to the newly refurbished Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 1, which is conveniently located near Jewel Changi Airport mall.
