5 June 2013, Singapore – A year ago today, Scoot, LCC of the Year1, introduced Scootitude to the skies with its first ever flight to Sydney, Australia. Since then, more than a million guests have Scooted across the airline’s rapidly growing network that, with this month’s addition of Nanjing and Seoul, now spans 11 cities.

Said Campbell Wilson, CEO of Scoot, “How time flies! In just 365 days Scoot has expanded our fleet from one aircraft to five, our network from one city to 10 – 11 from next week – and carried more than one million guests.

“Scoot has fulfilled its promise to provide more competition, more choice, more value and more empowerment to the travelling public – evidenced by our load factor consistently exceeding 80%. On behalf of all 400 members of Team Scoot, thank you to all those who’ve supported Scoot during our first year of operations. It’s been a busy one, we’ve learned a lot and it’s been a good start - but it’s only a start. We can’t wait to bring our great fun, great value and Scootitude to even more cities very soon,” added Campbell.

Destination NSW CEO, Sandra Chipchase, said, “I congratulate Scoot on its first-year anniversary and look forward to our continuing collaboration.”

"Destination NSW is partnering with Scoot in a cooperative marketing campaign to promote Sydney and drive visitation from June 2013 to March 2014.”

The co-operative marketing campaign features print and radio advertising, with a social media campaign, including a ‘Love Every Second in Sydney’ Facebook promotion. “We are delighted to have this opportunity to work with Scoot to develop a number of innovative marketing campaigns to promote Sydney and NSW and help achieve our 2020 target of doubling overnight visitor expenditure,” added Sandra.

The airline is also offering a “crazy anniversary sale” to Sydney, in which guests who buy a ticket from Singapore to Sydney will get their return flight free! This special promotion is available at www.flyscoot.com from 1.00pm (Singapore time) on 5 June 2013 (Wednesday) till 1.00pm (Singapore time) on 6 June 2013 (Thursday), or until seats sell out.

To top off the festivities, Mr Alistaire Ong and his travelling companion, who were on board Scoot’s 366th Singapore to Sydney flight early this morning, were surprised with an instant upgrade to ScootBiz and another pair of round-trip ScootBiz tickets to Sydney. They were also rewarded with a three-night accommodation voucher at Oaks on Castlereagh Sydney and a AUD100 dining voucher at The Waterfront Restaurant, with compliments of Destination NSW.

Scoot’s network now comprises 10 cities including Singapore, Sydney, Gold Coast, Bangkok, Taipei, Tokyo, Tianjin, Qingdao, Shenyang and Nanjing, with Seoul commencing next week.
