Singapore Flights Scoot Airways
The new low fare airway (Scoot Airways) is planned by Singapore Airways Ltd hasn't set a date to begin flights, a company spokeswoman said, denying local media reports of an April launch date. "We're still in the initial set-up of our operations and still working on building up scoot airway. As scoot airways we're expectedly exploring various arrangements, but nothing has been firmed to date," said Audrey Tan, a spokeswoman for New Aviation Pte. Ltd., the Singapore Airways new unit set up to operate the new scoot airlways.
Scoot Air will release information on key developments in due course, she told Dow Jones Newswires in an emailed response to queries on a report in the Straits Times that scoot airways would start in April with one Boeing 777-200 aircraft. Scoot Airlines Sydney will add more planes and fly four jets within three months of the April launch date and its fleet will rise to a total of 14 Boeing passenger jets, each with a capacity of around 400 passengers, by the middle of 2016, the newspaper reported, citing unnamed sources.
A person in the airway industry familiar with the new start-up airways plans said the first flight is unlikely to be in April, though a tender document calling for bids for inflight entertainment systems said the approximate "entry into service" date for the first aircraft was April 1. The information released in August, also mentioned a proposed fleet size of 14 Boeing aircraft. The new aiirway scoot) carrier will be a wholly owned unit of Singapore Airlines but will be operated independently by separate management.
