Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 2 November 2011

Singapore Airlines has unveiled that the name of its new low cost airline will be Scoot Airlines.

 SIA first announced that it would launch a new low cost airline in May of this year.

The new airline will compete directly with AirAsia X, the long haul affiliate of the hugely popular Malaysian low budget airline AirAsia, as well as other low cost long haul airlines in the region.

Operations are expected to begin within the next six months, though no firm date has been fixed. The airline is wholly owned by Singapore Airlines, but will be operated independently and managed separately from SIA.

Scoot will use Boeing 777-200 aircraft, but more details of its branding, terminal to be used, products, services, and exact route network have not yet been revealed.
