Scoot Airlines is Singapore Airlines’s long-haul budget carrier, based in Changi Airport Terminal 2 and has begun operations since April 2012. From June 2012 onwards, Scoot became the first budget airlines to fly non-stop from Singapore to Sydney on a daily basis. Being quite aggressive in gaining the Australia market share, Scoot Singapore is currently running five direct flights weekly from Singapore to Gold Coast.
Scoot Airlines to Sydney
Travellers are hoping that Scoot’s direct flight from Singapore to Sydney will hit hard on its competitors Jetstar and AirAsia X. Will their wish be granted?
Currently, Jetstar operating a Singapore to Sydney route with a stopover at Melbourne while AirAsia X flies to Sydney with a stopover at Kuala Lumpur. Between Jetstar and AirAsia X, the latter offers cheaper 2-way airfares from Singapore to Sydney. But with Scoot Airlines coming on board, we will definitely see stiff competitions among these three budget airlines.
- Jetstar (stop over at Melbourne) – from S$890
- AirAsia X (Stop over at KL) – from S$573
- FlyScoot (Non-stop) – from S$478
[Upated 21 March 2012] FlyScoot.com started selling cheap tickets to Sydney today. A return ticket on Scoot Airlines to Sydney goes for as little as SGD222, reported by one of our writers, Jeffrey Neo, who decided to check out Scoot Airlines service quality and promised that he would write about his experience.
Scoot Airlines Website – Flyscoot.com
Scoot Air is building an image of fun, unconventional like calling its official website: flyscoot.com. So do not be mistakenly by those websites named scootairlines.com or scootair.com as the official Scoot Airlines website. Let’s hope Scoot Airlines airfares are equally ‘unconventional’ & ‘encouraging’ (meaning cheap) so that everyone can experience new places, meet new people.
Scoot Airlines Airfares
Scoot Airlines airfares are supposedly 40% cheaper than a full-serviced carrier. But when its parent company – Singapore Airlines (SIA) offer special fares to Sydney, Gold Coast or Peth, it is still worthwhile to check out SQ promo fares.
