Scoot postpones launch of second China service

12 Nov 2012

Singapore low-cost carrier Scoot has postponed the launch of its second service to China because of delays getting regulatory approval. 

The airline had planned to launch a three-times-weekly service flying Singapore–Shenyang–Qingdao–Singapore from November 27 (see here), but has now pushed the launch date back to January 8 next year.

“Although we expect the regulatory approval to be in hand very soon, given that we cannot definitively know the date, we have elected to postpone the start of flights at this juncture so that people who have already booked have enough time to make alternative travel or holiday plans,” said a spokesperson for the airline. 

They said that all affected passengers were being contacted and offered a full refund, plus a travel voucher as a gesture of apology.

The airline launched a four-times-weekly service to Tianjin, its first destination in Mainland China, in October (see here).
