Scoot Announces SE Asian Destinations on New E190-E2 Aircraft

Our Bureau - : Mar 5, 2024 - : 6:10 pm

Scoot, the low-cost subsidiary of Singapore Airlines (SIA), revealed the initial six Southeast Asian destinations to be served by its new fleet of Embraer E190-E2 aircraft on Tuesday (Mar. 5). These destinations include the newly added routes to Koh Samui and Sibu, alongside existing routes in Malaysia and Thailand, covering Hat Yai, Kuantan, Krabi, and Miri.

Scheduled to commence in May 2024, Scoot’s E190-E2 services will kick off after the delivery of the first of nine aircraft from Embraer’s manufacturing facility in São José dos Campos, Brazil, in April.

These aircraft will facilitate direct connections to and from Singapore, enhancing the SIA Group’s accessibility to non-metropolitan cities across Southeast Asia. This expansion aims to link passengers through the Singapore hub and beyond, leveraging Scoot’s extensive network connectivity.

The first E2, named Explorer 3.0, is set to arrive in Singapore in April 2024. It will take over Scoot’s existing flights to Krabi and Hat Yai from 7 May 2024, boosting flight frequencies to both destinations from 7 times to 10 times weekly.

The second E2 is also slated for delivery in April 2024. Its induction will enable Scoot to service four additional cities – Koh Samui, Kuantan, Miri, and Sibu. Daily flights to Koh Samui will commence on 13 May 2024, with the frequency progressively increased to twice daily from early June 2024. The addition of the second E2 will also enhance frequency to Miri and Kuantan from three to four times weekly starting from 20 May 2024 and 3 June 2024, respectively, as well as launch thrice-weekly flights to Sibu from 5 June 2024. Together with destinations served by Scoot’s existing fleet, the airline will operate 103 weekly flights to Malaysia and 92 weekly flights to Thailand by June 2024.

With Koh Samui and Sibu joining its network, Scoot’s total destinations will reach 69, bolstering the airline’s regional connectivity and reinforcing Singapore’s role as a key hub.

The sale of E190-E2 flights will progressively open for booking through Scoot’s website, mobile app, and other channels, with all-in sale fares for Economy class starting from SGD172 to Koh Samui and SGD72 to Sibu, inclusive of taxes.

Mr. Leslie Thng, Scoot’s Chief Executive Officer, expressed, “We are delighted to unveil the first six destinations to be helmed by our new Embraer E190-E2s to cities in Malaysia and Thailand, including two exciting new additions to our network. This marks a new chapter of growth for Scoot and the SIA Group, and a significant step in strengthening our presence and connectivity in the region.”

He added, “Our fleet expansion reflects our confidence that the demand for air travel will continue to grow within this region. We will continue to seek new opportunities and push boundaries, so as to connect our customers to even more destinations at the same great value in the future.”
