Scoot Boeing 787 routes planned
Scoot, the low-cost spin-off of Singapore Airlines, has announced some of the routes it plans to operated its new Boeing 787 Dreamliners on.
As Scoot works towards replacing its entire Boeing-777 fleet, the new Dreamliners — the first of which is expected to arrive in November — will help the airline save more than 20 per cent in fuel per seat, Chief Executive Campbell Wilson said.
“We certainly intend to pass some, if not most, of the savings to our consumers as, clearly, lower air fares stimulate more people to travel … At the very least, the fares will not increase; more likely they will come down,” he added.
Scoot announced in October 2012 it had agreed to acquire 20 Boeing 787s.
Initial routes will be from Singapore Changi to Taipei, Japan, and Australia.
