Singapore Airlines’ Scoot to make European debut
Low-cost carrier Scoot will launch its first nonstop service from Singapore to Europe on June 20 next year, to the Greek capital Athens. It will be the longest route of any budget carrier, with a journey time of 11 hours and distance exceeding 10,000km.
Owned by Singapore Airlines, Scoot is a low-cost, long-haul carrier that launched flights in 2012 on routes from Singapore, mainly to Australia and China.
Four times weekly flights operated with a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner will depart Changi airport on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 02:00 and arrive at Athens International at 08:30.
Return flights leave Athens on the same days at noon and arrive in Singapore at 04:25 the following day. Flights will feature a two-class configuration with 329 seats.
As a launch promotion, Scoot is offering one-way all-inclusive standard fares starting at S$288 (€189) for travel between June 20, 2017, and October 31, and ScootBiz seats from S$888.
