Scoot takes delivery of its first Boeing 777

Scoot (Singapore), the low-cost, long-haul holiday subsidiary of Singapore Airlines, on March 15 accepted its first Boeing 777-212 ER from its parent. Formerly operated by Singapore as 9V-SQA, this 777-212 ER has become 9V-OTA with Scoot. 9V-OTA will be painted in Scoot’s distinctive yellow and white livery. A second aircraft is due on March 20.

Scoot is planning to launch operations in June. Sydney will become the carrier’s first destination, which Scoot plans to fly daily from Singapore . Gold Coast has been announced as the carrier’s second destination (five days a week). By the end of the year, the airline intends to serve five cities which would include cities in Australia, China and Japan.
