Scoot is continuing to make short-notice additions to its passenger flight schedules, with Tianjin rejoining its network next week. It will be the first time the airline has operated regular passenger flights to and from the city since mainland China services were suspended around five months ago in early February.

Flights will operate every other Wednesday using Boeing 787-9 aircraft, commencing on 19th August 2020. Scoot is the only airline operating direct flights between Singapore and Tianjin.

Summary

Last month Scoot made a late addition of Clark to its passenger network, while also cutting some originally proposed flights to and from its three destinations in Malaysia.

With the last-minute addition of these Tianjin services, the airline will operate 142 passenger flights during the month of August 2020, around 2.5% of its usual network but still a 37% increase on the 104 flights operated in July 2020.

Interestingly, these Tianjin flights are the first the airline has reintroduced on a less than weekly basis, with passenger service only once every 14 days. The airline has yet to announce its full flying programme for September 2020, which should be released next week.
