Scoot launches five new routes as it merges with Tigerair

Scoot has announced the addition of five new destinations – two longhaul and three shorthaul routes – by June 2018 as it marked the completion of its merger with Tigerair Singapore yesterday.

The two longhaul destinations are Honolulu, Scoot’s maiden US destination, and Harbin in north-east China. The three shorthaul routes will be Kuching and Kuantan in Malaysia, and Palembang in Indonesia.

Together with the addition of Tigerair’s network, the five new services will bring Scoot’s total destination count to 65 across 18 countries.

All Tigerair flights will now operate under the Scoot brand and flights will operate under the TR flight designator code. Both airlines now operate under a single brand and operating licence.

Aside from launching a new cabin crew uniform, Scoot has also changed its Get Outta Here! tagline and adopted a new slogan, Escape the Ordinary.

The airline has also rolled out its first A320 aircraft, previously operated by Tigerair and repainted with the Scoot livery, named “Conscious Coupling” in commemoration of the integration. The current Tigerair fleet will be progressively repainted and the complete livery change is targeted to be for completion by mid-2018.
