The low-cost subsidiary of Singapore Airlines (SIA) is to arrive at Gatwick Airport.
Scoot, recently named the World’s Best Long-Haul Low-Cost Airline by SkyTrax, has announced its first UK route, Gatwick being its choice of airport non-stop from Bangkok’s international airport Suvarnabhumi. The flight originates in Singapore.
There are currently no Covid-19 restrictions on travel between the UK and Thailand.
The new service will commence with flights from 16 December. This will be followed by three times weekly scheduled seasonal services from March 2022, with a further review and potential increase in frequency based on demand and regulatory approval.
All services will be operated by Scoot’s widebody Boeing 787 Dreamliners offering both Economy and ScootPlus cabins, sporting features such as inflight wi-fi and the ability to upgrade to Scoot Plus or to Scoot-in-Silence – Scoot’s offering of a quiet-zone.
Scoot was the first low-cost carrier in the world to be awarded both the highest health safety ratings by Skytrax and APEX/SimpliFlying for its measures to ensure the health and safety of passengers and operating crew.
Based at Changi Airport (Singapore), the airline was founded in 2012 and took over Tigerair in 2017. It now operates a fleet of 29 Airbus A320 series aircraft and 20 Boeing 787 Dreamliners. There are presently no non-stop flights between the United Kingdom and Thailand.
