Scoot, Asia/Pacific’s Best Low Cost Airline for four consecutive years and the low-cost arm of the Singapore Airlines (SIA) Group, launched its inaugural Scoot Berlin Flight today! This marks the first of its four-times-weekly non-stop Singapore-Berlin services. The capital city of Germany is Scoot’s third long-haul destination after the launch of Athens in Greece and Honolulu in the United States in 2017.
Scoot’s flight TR734 departed Singapore Changi Airport at about 12.25am local time and received a traditional water cannon salute upon arriving at Berlin Tegel Airport at approximately 7.20 am local time today. The aircraft, a widebody Boeing 787 Dreamliner named “Bo Jio”, carried 311 passengers – 95% full. These passengers originated from Singapore, Indonesia and Australia among other countries, and half of them comprised young adults between 18 and 35 years old. Known for its unique and fun personality, the low-cost airline has been known to organise neon parties, band performances, and even an in-flight wedding on board its flights. In line with Berlin’s reputation as the party central of Europe, customers of TR734 were invited to take part in an electro dance party and exciting games with prizes.
Mr Lee Lik Hsin, Scoot’s CEO, said, “With the addition of Berlin just a year after we successfully launched Athens, and then Honolulu, Scoot’s low-cost long-haul network continues to grow at a steady pace. Vibrant, creative and steeped in history, we are confident that the city of Berlin will appeal to any market or demographic, and open a new and exciting part of the continent for travellers.”
Scoot’s spacious and comfortable state-of-the-art 787 Dreamliners offer several amenities and services suited to long-haul travel, such as in-flight Wi-Fi, in-seat power and inflight ScooTV entertainment streamed to your own devices. You can also choose from a full-leather ScootBiz seat with 38” pitch, 30kg checked-in baggage, and meals and drinks included, or enjoy a peaceful journey in the ScootinSilence economy class quiet zone with seat pitches ranging from 31” up to 35”.
Scoot’s extensive route network currently spans 65 destinations across 18 countries and territories, with Nanchang to join next month. Its fleet of 17 787 Dreamliners and 24 Airbus A320 family aircraft, with three more Boeing 787 Dreamliners and 39 Airbus A320neo aircraft on order, is slated to increase to about 70 aircraft by 2022. With the addition of Berlin, the SIA Group network in Germany now encompasses four cities, including Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, and Munich, with a total of 29 return services a week.
