Ready, Get Set, Scoot Outta Here from 4 June 2012!

Inaugural and additional flights from 4 – 25 June go on sale today

19 April 2012, Singapore – Scoot, Singapore’s newest airline, is taking off ahead of schedule with its inaugural flight to Sydney set for 4 June, followed by the Gold Coast a week later on 12 June. Tickets for June’s flights will be available for booking from today!

“Our launch preparations continue at a fast pace and we’re delighted to be able to put earlier flights on sale,” said Campbell Wilson, Scoot’s CEO. “The additional flights in June will be perfect for families who have yet to make plans for the school holidays, and those who wish to escape the heat in Singapore for some cool times in Australia – and vice versa!”

To celebrate the earlier launch, introductory airfares on the two routes connecting Singapore with Sydney and the Gold Coast will start from just $128 each way, including taxes. But hurry: the two-day special promotion will start at 6pm Singapore time on 19 April 2012 and end at 9.59pm on 20 April 2012.

The first departures on offer  for this special promotion  are from 6 June (Sydney) and 14 June (Gold Coast) through to  9 August  2012.  Tickets are available for booking at www.flyscoot.com or through the call centre at +65 3158 3388 (Singapore) or +61 (0)2 8520 1888 (Australia).

Airfares outside of the promotion period start from only S$158 (originating from Singapore) and A$179 (originating from Australia).
