Scoot Expands Network in India

Scoot has launched flights from Singapore to Amritsar and Chennai in India. It will also commence a four-times-weekly service to Jaipur from October, allowing business travellers to fly to the capital and largest city of the Indian state of Rajasthan.

Scoot’s thrice weekly service to Amritsar will increase frequency with an additional Monday service from July, restarting the Singapore-Amritsar route for the SIA Group. The airline has also taken over the Singapore-Chennai daily service from Tigerair, expanding capacity to Chennai for the SIA Group with its Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

“India is one of the fastest growing aviation markets in the world and Scoot is excited to present exceptional value, an empowering selection of customisation options including inflight connectivity and in-seat power to guests flying into and out of India,” says chief commercial officer for Scoot and Tigerair Leslie Thng. “Guests from India can now fly to amazing destinations in our Asia Pacific network through the Singapore hub, as well as onward with Singapore Airlines, SilkAir and Tigerair in the SIA Group portfolio.”
