Tig­erair merges with Scoot

TravTalk - India - - FAMILYALBU­M -

Nine months after Scoot and Tig­erair an­nounced their in­ten­tion to pur­sue a sin­gle brand and op­er­at­ing li­cence un­der the en­hanced Scoot brand, the air­line in­dus­try bid farewell to Tig­erair Sin­ga­pore, as its last flight de­parted from Sin­ga­pore for Tiruchi­rap­palli on July 24. Now, all the flights pre­vi­ously un­der the Tig­erair brand will be op­er­ated un­der the Scoot brand and Scoot flights will op­er­ate un­der the TR flight des­ig­na­tor code. This marks the com­ple­tion of the Scoot-Tig­erair in­te­gra­tion process that be­gan last May when the air­lines were brought un­der a com­mon hold­ing com­pany, Bud­get Avi­a­tion Hold­ings. After suc­cess­fully com­menc­ing op­er­a­tions in In­dia last year, value air­line Scoot is all set to take up new des­ti­na­tions un­der its um­brella that were run­ning un­der Tig­erair. These in­clude Bengaluru, Hy­der­abad, Kochi, Tiruchi­rap­palli and Luc­know. “Scoot was very well re­ceived after the launch of our first three des­ti­na­tions in In­dia last year; the re­sponse was re­mark­able. We hope to cre­ate the same im­pact in Bengaluru, Tiruchi­rap­palli, Kochi, Luc­know and Hy­der­abad by bring­ing great prices with­out com­pro­mis­ing on the safety and com­fort of the pas­sen­gers,” said Bharath Ma­hade­van, Coun­try Head, In­dia, Scoot. To cel­e­brate the merger with the sin­gle Scoot brand, spe­cial oneway pro­mo­tional fares from Bengaluru have been in­tro­duced for des­ti­na­tions like Sin­ga­pore, Bali and Hong Kong. Ad­di­tional 10 per cent dis­counts are also avail­able through pro­mo­tional codes for a book­ing pe­riod from July 25, 2017 to Aug 6, 2017.
