Launch Of Low Cost Flights Between Southeast Asia And London

Singapore based, low-cost airline Scoot has announced the launch of flights between Singapore and London via Bangkok. When it launches it will be the only low-cost direct flight between Thailand and the UK.

Scoot is the low-cost subsidiary of Singapore Airlines and was recently named as the World’s Best Long-Haul Low-Cost Airline in the Skytrax Awards.

The new service will commence with flights from 16th December 2021 until just after Christmas and will then restart with three-times weekly seasonal scheduled services from March 2022.

All flights will be operated by Scoot’s widebody Boeing 787 Dreamliners offering both Economy and ScootPlus cabins, sporting features such as in-flight wi-fi and the ability to upgrade to Scoot Plus or to Scoot-in-Silence.

Scoot will be using London Gatwick Airport.

“The progressive relaxation of international borders presents new opportunities for airlines and travelers alike.

With the ability to now travel quarantine-free between the United Kingdom and Thailand, Scoot is excited to introduce the only low-cost option between Bangkok and London offering our unique combination of great value and great experience with a touch of Scootitude.

For nearly 10 years, Scoot has empowered travelers to customise their flight experience as they prefer, whether it be with extra legroom, checked baggage, free carry-on cabin luggage of 10kg, inflight Wi-Fi, tasty meals, Scoot-in-Silence or just enjoy an unbeatable airfare. We’re excited to now introduce the World’s Best Long-Haul Low-Cost Airline to London.”

Mr. Campbell Wilson, Scoot’s Chief Executive Office

Travellers need to be careful however as the flights are not Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) certified and so travellers heading to Singapore would be required to quarantine on arrival under the current regulations. Anyone wishing to travel quarantine-free to Singapore must book VTL flights.

London will become Scoot’s third destination in Europe, with routes to Berlin in Germany and Athens in Greece already scheduled. Scoot has confirmed that they will monitor demand and may add additional flights if required.
