Scoot will launch the world’s longest low-cost carrier service next year when it begins operating flights between Singapore and Athens.

According to Scoot, the commencement of its service to Europe is part of the Singapore Airlines Group’s strategy “to stimulate passenger traffic between Asia-Pacific and Europe, as well as to boost connectivity through the Singapore hub.”

The Singapore–Athens route, which covers a distance of more than 10,000km, is scheduled to begin on June 20, 2017. The flight schedule can be found below:


Flight no. Departure Arrival Frequency
TZ702 0200 0830 Tue, Thu, Sat, Sun

TZ701 1200 0425 (+1)

Flights will be operated by the B787-8, which features a two-class configuration comprising 21 seats in business and 314 in economy.

Customers looking for an upgraded experience can choose from a number of chargeable add-ons such as meals and streamed in-flight entertainment.

The Singapore low-cost carrier does offer a premium cabin class called ScootBiz, which grants passengers all of the amenities mentioned above, as well as an all-leather seat with 38-inch seat pitch and 30kg of checked baggage.

To commemorate the launch of its first European service, Scoot is offering one-way economy fares starting at S$288 (US$215), inclusive of taxes. The promotional fare for ScootBiz starts at S$888 (US$661). Deal ends on August 31, 2016.
