“Scoot has increased its flights to Southeast Asia.”

Scoot, the low-cost division of Singapore Airlines (SIA), announced that it will operate its new Embraer E190-E2 aircraft to serve six Southeast Asian destinations, including two new ones. The airline already has connections to four other destinations, namely, Hat Yai and Krabi in Thailand, and Kuantan and Miri in Malaysia.

Starting from May, Scoot’s E190-E2 services will commence after the first of nine aircraft arrives in April from Embraer’s production site in São José dos Campos, Brazil. The ability of Scoot to provide direct connections to and from Singapore with these aircraft will strengthen the SIA Group’s reach and capabilities to non-metropolitan cities around Southeast Asia. Thanks to the airline’s extensive network infrastructure, Scoot will be able to link consumers to and through the Singapore hub and beyond.

On May 7, the current flights of Scoot to Krabi and Hat Yai will be replaced by the first E2, which is scheduled for delivery in April. At the same time, flights to both locations will expand from daily to ten per week

Starting May 13th, Scoot will deploy the second E2 for routes to Samui, Kuantan, Miri, and Sibu. Samui flights will operate daily, with plans to increase to two flights per day by early June. With the addition of the second E2, Scoot will increase its weekly flight schedule to Miri and Kuantan from three to four starting on May 20th and June 3rd respectively. Additionally, three weekly flights to Sibu will begin on June 5th. The starting price for economy class, including taxes, is SGD172 for Samui and SGD72 for Sibu.

By June, the airline will run 92 weekly flights to Thailand and 103 weekly flights to Malaysia.

Scoot is expanding its network to 69 destinations by adding flights to Samui and Sibu. This will strengthen Singapore’s position as a regional hub and improve the airline’s regional connectivity.

We are excited to announce the first six routes to be flown by our new Embraer E190-E2s, which will take passengers to destinations in Malaysia and Thailand. Leslie Thng, the CEO of Scoot, stated, “This is a significant step in improving our presence and connectivity in the region and marks a new chapter in the growth of Scoot and the SIA Group.”
