Scoot restarting Sydney and Melbourne flights in November 2020

Scoot is returning to both Sydney and Melbourne with passenger flights next month, making these the most frequently served cities on the SIA group network by the end of the year

SIA’s low-cost division Scoot is increasing its presence in Australia next month, with weekly Boeing 787 passenger flights to both Sydney and Melbourne from 1st November 2020, supplementing its existing services to and from Perth.

These will also join the mainline carrier’s nine times weekly Sydney flights and seven times weekly Melbourne flights during the month, both set to pick up increases to 12 times weekly and 13 times weekly respectively from December 2020 even before Scoot’s announcement.

These will already be Singapore Airlines’ most frequently served current routes come December, with only London Heathrow matching the Sydney total of 12 per week.

Assuming these additional Scoot flights will also operate in December 2020, they will elevate capacity for the group to and from both Sydney and Melbourne to levels not seen since before COVID-19.



Originally a 10 times weekly route for Scoot, the airline’s Boeing 787-9s will operate to and from Sydney just once a week on Mondays from 2nd November 2020, returning on Tuesdays.

This will mark the first regular operation by the airline to Sydney for over seven months, with services suspended in mid-March 2020 as the COVID-19 outbreak took hold.
