Scoot to wet-lease a B777 to cover for B787 downtime
Fly Scoot 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.

Tiger Air is a subsidiary of Singapore Airlines that has short-haul routes, around Asia. While Scoot has a wider reach to the continent of Europe. The merger of both companies was done to improve the effectiveness and the efficiency of the company's performance.

Budget airline Scoot eyes more Philippines flights
Singaporean budget airline Scoot said Thursday said it was looking to add 10 more flights to and from the Philippines over the next 5 years.
Scoot, a subsidiary of Singapore Airlines, currently flies 23 times weekly from the country and is hoping to grow by 10 to 20 percent annually, CEO Lee Lik Hsin said
Although the company considers the Philippine market an important part of its Asian network, Lee said infrastructure remains a constraint.
"We would love to be able to increase our flights to Manila, but Manila is a very slot-constrained airport so we can’t fly additional flights even if we wanted to," he told ANC's Market Edge.
"For example, in certain airports in other countries, you may not face the same kind of slot constraints. We do want to grow, but we have to find the right opportunities and infrastructure to do so," he said.
While Scoot is considering international airports in Clark, Davao, and Cebu, the capital is still a priority, he said.

Scoot announces plans for £150 fares from UK to India
The low-cost long-haul revolution is expected to touch down in India next year with no-frills carrier Scoot aiming to launch non-stop flights from Europe to cities including Mumbai and Delhi for around £150.
The budget subsidiary of Singapore Airlines says it hopes to start flights between India and Europe using its so-called "fifth freedom" privilege, which allows airlines to carry passengers between two foreign countries as a part of services that connect with their home country.
"Since we have fifth freedom, we can operate direct flights from Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai and Kolkata to destinations like Copenhagen, Vienna, Cairo and Manchester," Bharath Mahadevan, head of the airline’s operations in the country.
The airline's operations are currently focused in the Far East and Australia, while its route map features Sydney, Melbourne, Manila, Bangkok and Hong Kong. It does, however, offer direct flights from Singapore to Athens, with prices from around £350 return.
Scoot favours flights to Manchester over London to avoid luring customers from its parent company, Singapore Airlines. But budget travellers in the capital could soon have their own low-cost options for trips to India. SpiceJet and IndiGo, the nation’s two biggest no-frills airlines, are reportedly planning direct routes to Gatwick, while low-cost trailblazer Norwegian has also been talking up the prospect of flights to India since 2015 – so far without results.
SpiceJet in particular has very ambitious plans for expansion. While its route map doesn’t currently extend far beyond India (Dhaka, Malé, Muscat, Colombo, Bangkok and Dubai are among its international destinations), in June it announced a massive order for 100 Boeing aircraft (it currently has a fleet of 55 planes), earning it praise from none other than Donald Trump, who thanked it for safeguarding US jobs.
It marked quite a turnaround for SpiceJet. In December 2014 the airline was on the brink of collapse following five consecutive years in the red. It was even forced to cancel more than 2,000 flights because it hadn’t paid its bills and oil companies were refusing to refuel its planes. Since that nadir, however, its stock has risen more than 800 per cent, giving it a market value of $1.2 billion (£0.9bn).
The potential for growth in India really is staggering. The country’s population stands at at more than 1.32 billion, and it is projected to overtake China (which has 1.38 billion residents) by 2022. Airlines have been rushing to cater to its growing middle class, and a clutch of carriers have been established in the last decade or so. The most successful has been IndiGo, which in 11 years has gone from start-up to low-cost behemoth, with 138 jets, 46 destinations and more than 41 million annual passengers.
Scoot plans Harbin Dec 2017 launch

26th July 2017
Scoot is planning to launch services from its Singapore base to 5 new destinations: Harbin, Honolulu, Kuantan, Kuching and Palembang.
Singapore-Harbin will be operated thrice-weekly, while services to Honolulu (via Osaka Kansai) will be operated four-times weekly. Both routes are expected to commence by the end of the year, using Boeing 787s.
As part of its new service to Honolulu, Scoot will also operate a non-stop service to Osaka Kansai. It currently operates to Osaka Kansai via Bangkok Don Mueang and Kaohsiung, Taiwan - both services will continue.
Honolulu also represents Scoot's first destination in the US and its second 'ultra long-haul' destination after Athens.
Scoot has also applied to operate thrice-weekly to Kuantan within the first half of 2018. It will also take over SilkAir's four-times weekly Kuching and thrice-weekly Palembang services from 29 October and 23 November, respectively. All three services will be operated using Airbus A320s.
Scoot adds however that these planned launches are still subject to regulatory approvals.
The carrier has merged with Tigerair, and the new routes will bring expand its network to 65 destinations in 18 countries.
25th July 2017
Scoot and Tigerair merges to operate under a single brand, Scoot.

Scoot's off to Athens
Scoot has begun flying to Athens, the only LCC that offers a direct flight between South-east Asia and Greece. The flight is also the airline’s first to a European destination and maiden longhaul flight.
Operated on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the 11.5-hour flight takes off from Singapore every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 02.45, and arrives in Athens on the same day at 08.45. Return flights will depart Athens at 11.30 and arrive in Singapore at 03.55 the following day.
In addition, Scoot has plans to add five new routes in the next year, including one extra longhaul destination
In April 2017, Scoot announced it was adjusting its service for Singapore - Perth service, which is currently served daily with Boeing 787-9 aircraft. 4 of 7 weekly flights will be operated by the -8, while operational schedule pushes back by nearly 3 hours.
New schedule as follows:
TZ008 SIN1220 – 1725PER 789 246
TZ018 SIN1500 – 2005PER 788 x246
TZ007 PER1835 – 2345SIN 789 246
TZ017 PER2110 – 0230+1SIN 788 x246
In November 2016, Tigerair (Singapore) brand announced it will merge with Scoot and retire in 2017. The brand integration will take place in the latter half of 2017, presenting travellers with more destination options and seamless travel experiences. In May 2017, Scoot Airlines announced it is planning to expand its long-haul routes to account for a "significant part" of its network. It is gearing up to launch its first long-haul service, a Singapore-Athens flight, next month. But in the next two to three years, it could triple its long-haul offerings. Scoot is now seeking approval from the authorities in the US for a Singapore to Honolulu service, with a stop in Osaka. The service, which is expected to take about 14hr 30min in total, could be launched by year-end. At 11½ hours, Scoot's new route from Singapore to Athens tops its nine-hour Singapore-Jeddah service.
In May 2017, Scoot Airlines announced it was planning on low cost to Europe flights with the recent purchase of eight 787 Dreamliner aircraft. The planes are billed as one of the most fuel efficient long-haul commercial planes which allows for the affordable prices. The shell of the plane is made from lightweight carbon fibre, and combined with specially designed engines and wings allow the plane to operate at a significantly lower cost. The Scoot flights will be based in Singapore and connect with flights leaving from Sydney, Gold Coast, Melbourne and Perth before arriving in Athens, Greece.
