Singapore Airlines's low-cost brand Scoot will launch India service soon
Scoot Airline plans to operate from Chennai, Amritsar and Jaipur as part of its India entry plan. The airline is in the process of getting all mandatory approvals. A final announcement in this regard is expected to be made in the next couple of weeks. Scoot, which began operations in 2012, will become Singapore Airlines' fourth brand to operate flights to India. The brand flies wide-body Boeing 787 planes with 335 seats and will be the second low-cost airline after AirAsia X to operate wide-body aircraft to India. At present Singapore Airlines and its two other brands ? SilkAir and Tigerair ? fly to India. Scoot's entry will result in some capacity adjustments and reduction of Tigerair flights to India. With the launch of Scoot flights, Singapore Airlines group will connect fifteen destinations in India. This will be second only to Air India which flies on international sectors from more cities.
