Scoot flying to 20 destinations in October and November

Scoot is adding passenger flights to Semarang in Indonesia and Tianjin in China next month, for a total network of 20 destinations from Singapore during October and November 2020

SIA’s low-cost subsidiary Scoot is continuing the cautious expansion of its passenger flight schedules in October and November 2020, confirming today that it will serve a total of 20 cities from Singapore. That represents the carrier’s largest network since flights were cut to a skeleton schedule of just two cities back in April 2020.

With the very limited frequencies on offer and some routes operating only fortnightly or even less often, in total the airline will operate 186 flights during October 2020 and 170 flights during November 2020. That’s equivalent to just over 3% of Scoot’s originally proposed capacity by flight volumes during the period.

Where is new?

From October 2020 two additional cities join the existing 18 on the Scoot network:

  • Semarang, Indonesia
  • Tianjin, China

This will be Scoot’s inaugural service to Semarang, a route it is taking over from SilkAir under a planned transfer first announced in late 2018. Airbus A320s will be deployed on this city pair.

Flights were originally proposed to become Scoot-operated from July 2020. SilkAir stopped flying its three times weekly services to Semarang on 20th March 2020, due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Tianjin is a second attempt at a restart for Scoot. A fortnightly service was originally loaded from 19th August 2020, however only one service actually operated. As with the previous plan, Boeing 787-9s are rostered for this service from 21st October 2020.

These two routes will join the existing 18 on Scoot’s passenger network, which are already being operated as of September 2020:

  • Clark
  • Guangzhou
  • Hong Kong
  • Ipoh
  • Kaohsiung
  • Kuala Lumpur
  • Kuching
  • Nanjing
  • Osaka
  • Palembang*
  • Pekanbaru*
  • Penang
  • Perth
  • Seoul
  • Surabaya
  • Taipei
  • Tokyo
  • Yogyakarta

* Originally announced from September 2020, however launch has been delayed until October 2020.
