From 2nd October, 2016, Singapore’s no-frills airline Scoot will launch flight from Jaipur to Singapore with a plan known as a “Kamascootra” as it expand its service from the country.
Scoot, the Singapore based reasonable cost airline, has flight from Chennai and Amritsar. And this airline will be getting its 12th aircraft, Dreamliner, in the first week of September, 2016 and it will be named in a unique way.
Scoot’s India Chief Bharath Mahadevan said that, “To commemorate our India services we have decided to name the aircraft after an early Indian art form. This is the first time that Scoot has named an aircraft after a country other than our home base Singapore. We always follow original names.”
The aircraft was expected to be delivered for the first flight to India in May, 2017 but as the manufacturer needed a lead time of up to six month more to paint the aircraft and it was painted in May and is being delivered recently.
Scoot launched its India Operation on 24th May with a daily service to Chennai from Singapore. The other aircraft in the Scoot fleet also have “different” named such as “Dreamstar” as it was the first Dreamliner that the airline got.
Another one is known as a ‘Spirit’ as Spirit Airlines in the US copied the Scoot campaign. Mahadevan said to reporters that, “With Jaipur, we take another step towards the target of steadily increasing our operations in India.”
There will be three flights every week from Jaipur to Singapore till 29th October, 2016 and then, the frequency will be increased to four flights every week from Jaipur to Singapore.
Scoot runs wide-body aircraft whereas Tiger Airways flies narrow-body planes. Yet, Scoot and Tiger Airways continue to provide their services under their own brand names.
According to Scoot’s India Chief, Scoot and Tiger Airways together will have 50 weekly flights connecting eight endpoints with Singapore from 29th October onwards. Scoot started operations in May, 2016 while Tiger Airways has been present in India since 2007.
