Scoot is in the middle of an ambitious network expansion that includes 11 new routes in 15 months. The expansion began in July 2015 with the launch of Singapore-Kaohsiung-Osaka and Singapore-Bangkok-Osaka, after Scoot added its seventh aircraft.

Scoot’s fleet has since expanded by another four aircraft, enabling the launch of services from Singapore to Hangzhou, Melbourne, Guangzhou and Jeddah. The recently delivered eleventh 787 will also support the launch of services from Singapore to Chennai and Amritsar on 24 May 2016. To Chennai and Guangzhou Scoot has taken over flights from Tigerair, and to Hangzhou it has taken over from SilkAir.

On 17 May 2016 Scoot unveiled plans to launch daily services from Bangkok Don Mueang to Tokyo Narita, from 20-Jul-2016. This new route supplements Scoot’s existing daily Singapore-Taipei-Tokyo Narita service and is made possible by extending Scoot’s daily Singapore-Bangkok turnaround flight, which was initially launched in 2012.

In April 2016 Scoot had also already announced plans to launch three weekly Singapore-Taipei-Sapporo flights from 1 October 2016. Along with Singapore-Jaipur, which is launching on 2-Oct-2016 and will initially be served with four weekly flights, this new route is made possible by the delivery of Scoot’s twelfth 787.
