Singapore Airlines’ low-cost subsidiary Scoot can’t seem to get a break when it comes to ramping up its passenger flight schedule. Last month the airline had to scale back plans to fly 108 flights by 30%, with service cuts predominantly to and from Malaysian cities.

Unfortunately in July 2020 it’s the same story, with flights between Singapore and Ipoh, Kuching and Penang being halved, resulting in an overall 20% cut from the airline’s originally proposed 128 services for the month.

Schedule cuts

In a schedule update on 2nd July 2020, Scoot confirmed it would be making these reductions to its passenger services for the month.

Here’s how the total network now looks, compared to Scoot’s original plan for July 2020.

Scoot passenger flights: July 2020

City Original Plan New Plan
Guangzhou 8 flights 8 flights
Hong Kong 26 flights 26 flights
Ipoh 18 flights 10 flights
Kuching 18 flights 8 flights
Penang 18 flights 10 flights
Perth 26 flights 26 flights
Surabaya 6 flights 6 flights
Taipei 8 flights 8 flights
Total 128 flights 102 flights

The changes are:

  • Ipoh: Reduction from twice weekly (18 flights) to once weekly (10 flights)
  • Kuching: Reduction from twice weekly (18 flights) to once weekly (8 flights)
  • Penang: Reduction from twice weekly (18 flights) to once weekly (10 flights)

Scoot’s Malaysia flights are operated by 180-seat Airbus A320s.

In total Scoot will now operate 102 passenger flights in July 2020, 20% less than it first proposed, but still a 27% increase on the 80 flights it ended up operating in June 2020.

“Scoot will continue to adjust our network in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.”
