Scoot starts to ramp up its passenger schedule from June

First glimmer of recovery? Scoot is planning to double passenger flights from early June 2020, adding four routes in the process.

Note: Scoot has since made two sets of cuts to its June 2020 schedule. See our article here for the latest details.

In late April Singapore Airlines and SilkAir extended their 96% capacity cuts through to 30th June 2020. That was effectively ‘no change’ from the April and May 2020 situation, with the two carriers operating to the same 15 destinations with more or less the same flight schedule.

Good news however comes from the SIA group’s budget subsidiary, with Scoot confirming that from 5th June 2020 it will expand its passenger flight operations from the current two cities to a wider network of six destinations across South East Asia, also returning some of its Airbus A320s to service in the process.

Note: Singapore Airlines has since announced a significantly increased schedule from 8th June 2020 through to the end of July 2020.

June 2020 schedule

From June 2020 a host of new Scoot services are now programmed in GDS and available for sale via the Scoot website.

This brings an additional four cities in China and Malaysia, operated by a mix of Airbus A320s and Boeing 787-9s, while the current schedule of Boeing 787-9 flights to Hong Kong and Perth will be extended.

Scoot had not previously been operating its Airbus A320s on regular passenger services since late March 2020.

The new flight schedule runs until 30th June 2020.
