Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 3 February 2015

Scoot has taken delivery of its first Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

The airline will take delivery of an additional 19 Boeing 787 Dreamliners. The airplanes were originally ordered by parent company Singapore Airlines, which included ten 787-9 and ten 787-8s.

"We are excited to be taking delivery of our very first 787 Dreamliner," said Scoot chief executive officer, Campbell Wilson. "The Dreamliner represents a step-change for Scoot, allowing us to take our onboard customer experience to a new level and to greatly expand our network. The 787's significant advances in efficiency will enable Scoot to continue offering safe and reliable service, with increased comfort and even greater value airfares."

Customers traveling on Scoot's new 787 will be able to experience the passenger-pleasing features of the Dreamliner such as larger, electronically dimmable windows and larger overhead luggage bins.

The lower cabin altitude, higher humidity levels, advanced air filtration and smoother-ride technology, help make the flying experience more comfortable and allow passengers to arrive at their destination more refreshed.
