Scoot will be flying daily to Hong Kong from later this month.
Scoot will begin flying a daily service between Singapore and Hong Kong from October 30. And as travel bounces back throughout the region, the low-cost Singapore-based carrier will be launching a raft of new routes along with increased frequencies.
Destinations to benefit from the refreshed schedule include Hong Kong, which will move from four-times-a-week to a daily service, as well as the Indonesian holiday island of Lombok which will receive a twice-weekly service with Singapore. From the end of this month, Scoot will boost its Japan service, with five flights a week to Jeju and a daily service to Osaka. A seasonal direct service to Sapporo will also run from November through to February, 2023.
“North Asia has always been an important region for us,” said Scoot’s chief executive officer Leslie Thng. “With travel demand remaining buoyant since the relaxation of travel restrictions, Scoot is excited to connect even more travellers to the region, including Greater China.”
Scoot is also partnering Pokémon to fly services on a ‘Pikachu’ jet. From November, the specially themed Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner will fly three fixed routes a month on the Singapore-Tokyo, Singapore-Taipei-Tokyo and Singapore-Taipei-Seoul routes.
