Scoot Europe routes
LOW cost carrier Scoot has confirmed Greece as its first destination in Europe with flights from its Singapore hub to Athens set to start from 20 June next year. The launch will mark the longest flight operated by a low-cost carrier, travelling more than 10,000 kilometres. Singapore Airlines said debuting Scoot services to Europe is part of the overall SIA Group’s “strategic move to stimulate passenger traffic between Asia Pacific and Europe,” as well as boosting connectivity via its Singapore hub. The four-times weekly route will be serviced by a Boeing 787-8 aircraft with a total of 329 seats including 18 in the Scootbiz cabin. Launch economy fares from Perth to Athens lead in at just $369, while flights to Athens from Sydney, Melbourne and the Gold Coast start off at $419. Extra charges will apply for baggage, food and in-flight wi-fi.
