Singaporean carrier Scoot has announced it will cease offering flights to Hong Kong starting from October 30.

According to a statement released by the low-cost carrier, the decision was made to allow Scoot to better maximise its resources and expand its network to more destinations.

The final service to Hong Kong will operate on October 28. TZ322 will depart Singapore at 0155 and arrive in Hong Kong at 0545. The last flight, TZ321, will leave Hong Kong at 0700 and touch down in the Lion City at 1040.

Travellers booked to travel from October 30 onwards will be transferred to the airline’s sister carrier Tigerair, and will be notified via email of the transfer and their options by September 30.

The move follows Scoot’s decision in May this year to reduce the capacity of flights to Hong Kong by deploying B787-8 aircraft, replacing the larger B787-9 that were previously servicing the route.
