Low cost carrier Scoot has announced its September 2020 passenger flight schedule, adding three cities in Indonesia for a total of 15 destinations, its largest network since flights were cut to a skeleton schedule of just two cities back in April 2020.

Seoul flights via Taipei will see a cut however, from two services per week in August (Fridays and Sundays) to a single weekly service on Fridays.

Services to Tianjin, initially loaded as fortnightly flights the first of which has already been completed, have also been removed from the schedules.

In total the airline will operate 144 flights during the month, with these new cities in Indonesia giving the carrier’s Airbus A320 fleet a small ramp-up in activity but with some Boeing 787 services reduced.


Where is new?

From September 2020 three additional cities join the existing 12 on the Scoot network:

  • Palembang
  • Pekanbaru
  • Yogyakarta (YIA)

This will be the first time Scoot (or any Singapore carrier for that matter) has operated to the new Yogyakarta International Airport, which opened in March 2020 replacing the Adisutjipto International Airport (JOG).

All three of these newly added Indonesian routes will be operated by Airbus A320 aircraft.

They will join these existing 12 Scoot passenger routes, which are already being operated as of August 2020:

  • Clark
  • Guangzhou
  • Hong Kong
  • Ipoh
  • Kuala Lumpur
  • Kuching
  • Nanjing
  • Penang
  • Perth
  • Seoul
  • Surabaya
  • Taipei
  • Tianjin (ended)
