Scoot, the low-cost arm of the Singapore Airlines Group, has launched daily flight services between Thiruvananthapuram and Singapore, up from its previous thrice-weekly flight service. The increase in frequency will allow Scoot to better support travel demand on the route.
Similarly, the daily services of the airline which has a network of 42 destinations in 16 countries and territories, including Australia and Southeast Asia, will also benefit tourists to and from Kerala and the southern part of Tamil Nadu.
The daily flight service will be operated by Scoot’s A321 neo aircraft, which endeavours a larger passenger capacity of 236 seats, 50 more than the A320neo, and more fuel-efficient engines, offering customers a comfortable in-flight experience.
The A321neo aircraft offers a comfortable inflight experience with features such as premium black leather seats, amply-sized overhead compartment bins, ambient lighting technologies that reduce jetlag, improved air quality, and reduced noise emissions.
The number of passengers and air traffic movement at Thiruvananthapuram international airport has increased significantly during the summer schedule.
Scoot Pte. Ltd (formerly Scoot Tigerair Pte. Ltd.), trading as Scoot, is a low-cost long-haul subsidiary airline of Singapore Airlines (SIA). Established by Singapore Airlines in 2011, Scoot commenced operations in June 2012 in Sydney and Gold Coast.
SIA utilised Scoot to leverage the rising challenge from LCCs in key markets. Scoot initially launched operations with four Boeing 777-200s in a two-class configuration and later switched its fleet to over 15 787-8/9 aircraft, all sourced through parent SIA.
