Budget airline launches low-cost flights to Berlin

Budget airline Scoot has launched its inaugural flight from Singapore to Berlin, marking the start of four-times weekly non-stop services to the German capital (below).


The low-cost arm of the Singapore Airlines Group now has three long-haul destinations after Athens in Greece and Honolulu in the United States, both of which were launched last year.

Scoot’s flight TR734 departed Singapore Changi Airport and received a traditional water cannon salute upon arriving at Berlin Tegel Airport this morning. 

The aircraft, a wide body Boeing 787 Dreamliner named “Bo Jio”, carried 311 customers - 95% full.

Lee Lik Hsin, Scoot’s CEO, said: “With the addition of Berlin just a year after we successfully launched Athens, and then Honolulu, Scoot’s low-cost long-haul network continues to grow at a steady pace. 

"Vibrant, creative and steeped in history, we are confident that the city of Berlin will appeal to any market or demographic, and open a new and exciting part of the continent for travellers.”

Scoot’s 787 Dreamliners offer several amenities and services suited to long-haul travel, including in-flight wifi, in-seat power and in-flight ScooTV entertainment streamed to guests’ own devices.

Guests can also choose from a full-leather ScootBiz seat with meals and drinks included, or enjoy a peaceful journey in the ScootinSilence economy class quiet zone. 

Scoot’s route network now spans 65 destinations across 18 countries and territories.
