Scoot to wet-lease a B777 to cover for B787 downtime
Scoot (TR, Singapore Changi) has announced it will wet-lease one B777-200(ER) from Singapore Airlines (SQ, Singapore Changi) to cover the shortage of B787-8s and -9s caused by the technical issues with Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines.
The wet-leased aircraft will be deployed between June 6 and June 30, 2018, on the low-cost, long-haul operator's service from Singapore Changi to Sydney Kingsford Smith.
It is recalled that Singapore Airlines CEO Goh Phong Choon recently told a media gathering that Singapore Airlines Group has not seen any headwinds due to the Trent 1000 engine issues currently afflicting carriers across the globe.
According to CAPA, after the initial lengthy grounding of one aircraft in the second half of 2017, Scoot resumed full operations of all its B787s in early 2018. However, the new airworthiness directive issued in April 2018, which tightened the requirements for inspections of the Trent 1000 engines and reduced ETOPS capabilities, has reportedly caused new headaches for the airline.
Flightradar24 ADS-B data shows that out of Scoot's ten B787-8s, 9V-OFD (msn 37121) has been grounded since May 19, while all the others are currently active. All six of the carrier's B787-8s are also active.
