Getting to Tokyo just got a little easier with Singapore-based low cost carrier Scoot launching its inaugural Singapore-Bangkok-Tokyo service last night.
Leslie Thng, Scoot’s Chief Commercial Officer, says the airline is excited to expand its present in Japan, with more Japanese routes still to come.
“With this new route, Scoot’s services to Tokyo will double from the present daily service via Taipei, to twice daily – once via Taipei and once via Bangkok,” Mr Thng says.
“This will allow us to offer guests from Singapore more flight options to Tokyo and better serve the increasing demand for air travel between Thailand and Japan”.
“At the same time, we are preparing for the launch of our three-times-weekly Singapore-Taipei-Sapporo services on 1 October, which will bring our Japan network to three cities – Tokyo, Osaka and Sapporo.”
Since launching in 2012, Scoot has carried more than seven million passengers. The all 787 Dreamliner fleet operates between Singapore and Sydney, Gold Coast, Bangkok, Taipei, Tokyo, Tianjin, Shenyang, Nanjing, Qingdao, Seoul, Hong Kong, Perth, Osaka, Kaohsiung, Hangzhou, Melbourne, Guangzhou, Jeddah, Chennai and Amritsar, and soon to Sapporo, Jaipur and Dalian.
