- Scoot, Singapore Airlines’ new low-cost subsidiary operating 402-seat 777-200 aircraft, launched its third route out of its Singapore (SIN) base on 5 July, following its routes to Sydney and Gold Coast in Australia. The airline now operates the merely 1,440-kilometre long route to Thailand’s capital Bangkok (BKK). Flights are scheduled with daily frequencies on the highly competitive route. Competition comes from Tiger Airways’ 37, Singapore Airlines’ 35, Thai AirAsia’s 35, Thai Airways’ 32, and Jetstar Asia’s 19 weekly flights as well as Cathay Pacific’s also daily operations.
