Scoot orders Embraer E2 Regional Jets – is Koh Samui on the cards?

Has the SIA Group solved its Koh Samui problem?

Scoot's order for nine Embraer E190-E2 aircraft looks to be an ideal solution.

Singapore Airlines’ low-cost subsidiary Scoot has announced that it will be introducing regional jets into its fleet from 2024, with a Letter of Intent (LOI) signed with commercial aircraft lessor Azorra for a total of nine new aircraft, all of which will be in service by 2025.

This will make Scoot the first operator of the Embraer family of aircraft in Singapore, and indeed for the E190 across South East Asia, with the E190-E2 being one of the Brazilian manufacturer’s latest jets, designed for short and medium-haul flights.


In a press release, the airline says “The order signals Scoot’s confidence in the growing demand for air travel in Asia and commitment to bolster the SIA Group’s network”.

Currently Scoot’s 60-strong fleet comprises the Airbus A320 family and Boeing 787 family of aircraft, with between 180 and 375 seats, but these new regional jets will accommodate only 112 passenger
