Scoot, the low-cost carrier of the Singapore Airlines (SIA) Group, has added Visakhapatnam and Coimbatore to its network.
Scoot offers five weekly return flights on the Visakhapatnam-Singapore route and daily return flights on Coimbatore-Singapore.
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.
Customers from India can now book their travel from both cities to Singapore, and connect to 60 other destinations across Scoot’s network, including destinations 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. 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, Scoot’s chief commercial officer.
Additionally, 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 at ₹4,900/£54, and can be booked from flyscoot.com and the Scoot mobile app.
