Cargo capacity to increase with Scoot

Cargo capacity to increase when Scoot take over India routings from Tiger Air. To tap synergies there are certain markets where long haul aircraft like a B 787 would work economically better than a narrow body aircraft like the Airbus 320 which Tiger operates. Tiger Air is withdrawing purely in terms of economics because cost per seat is lower. Also in terms of cargo. Chennai is a huge cargo market for Singapore Airlines. The 787 is better suited to carry cargo. A narrow body aircraft cannot carry that much cargo. The published capacity of a Boeing 787 is 10 tonnes. However, Scoot should be able to carry 14-15 tonnes on average per flight. Tigerair is a narrow body so it is not even comparable but the published capacity is about 2 tonnes per flight.
