Bud­get air­line to launch Kaoh­si­ung-S’pore flights

The China Post - - LOCAL -

Sin­ga­porean bud­get car­rier Scoot an­nounced Fri­day that it will launch non-stop flights to Kaoh­si­ung three times a week be­gin­ning on July 9.

Kaoh­si­ung will be the air­line’s sec­ond Tai­wanese des­ti­na­tion, as Scoot cur­rently pro­vides 10 flights per week to Tai­wan Taoyuan In­ter­na­tional Air­port, the main gate­way to Tai­wan, which is lo­cated some 45 kilo­me­ters away from down­town Taipei.

“Sin­ga­pore­ans sim­ply love Tai­wan, but there’s so much more to Tai­wan than just Taipei,” Scoot CEO Camp­bell Wil­son said in a state­ment.

Wil­son in­vited trav­el­ers to “en­joy Kaoh­si­ung’s food and night­mar­kets, its his­tor­i­cal sites, such as the Old City of Zuoy­ing, or the sur­round­ing coun­try­side, in­clud­ing beau­ti­ful Kent­ing Na­tional Park.”

The up­com­ing flights will de­part from Sin­ga­pore in the morn­ing and ar­rive in Kaoh­si­ung around noon, and then fly from the south­ern Tai­wan city in the evening back to the Southeast Asian city state in the early hours the fol­low­ing day ev­ery Tues­day, Thurs­day and Satur­day.

The flights will uti­lize the air­line’s new Boe­ing 787 Dream­liner, fea­tur­ing stream­ing movies and in­flight Wi-Fi.
