Honolulu : Honolulu service is among the five new destinations announced by Scott Airlines in conjunction with the completion of the Scoot-Tigerair integration under the single Scoot brand.
The other four are Kuching and Kuantan in Malaysia, Harbin in Northeast China and Palembang in Indonesia.
The new service between Singapore and Honolulu also marks Scoot's maiden entry into the United States of America.
The four-times-weekly flight serviced by the wide-bodied, twin-aisled Boeing B787 Dreamliner from Singapore to Honolulu with a stopover in Osaka is slated to commence on December 19. Once the Honolulu route starts, Scoot will operate non-stop Singapore-Osaka service, in addition to its existing three-times-weekly services to Osaka via Bangkok and Kaohsiung. The total frequency to Osaka from Singapore will, therefore, increase from six-times-weekly to 10-times-weekly.
"Say 'Aloha' to Hawaii as Scoot makes our entry into the USA with our second long-haul route," said Lee Lik Hsin, CEO, Scoot. "With the completion of the merger, Scoot now provides excellent connectivity with 60 destinations across 17 countries. Our network is set to grow further as our fleet of Boeing B787 Dream-liners and A320 aircraft is expected to be doubled in the next 5 years. Scoot now owns a combined fleet of 38 aircraft with 44 more on order, and this means more exciting destinations, both long and short-haul, are in the pipeline."
