Under the agreement, SIA will progressively add its ‘SQ’ designator code while SilkAir will add its ‘MI’ code to Scoot-operated flights between Singapore and more than 30 destinations1 served only by Scoot within the SIA Group. The codeshare arrangements will begin with Scoot flights serving Athens, Clark, Gold Coast, Hat Yai, Ipoh, Krabi, Kuching and Palembang. The new agreement will enable SIA and SilkAir customers to travel on single-ticket itineraries to these codeshare destinations, which means that their boarding passes and baggage tags will be issued up to their final destination at the first point of check-in.

In addition to through check-in service, SIA and SilkAir customers will be offered Scoot’s FlyBagEat privileges – which include checked baggage allowance2, complimentary meal and beverage as well as blanket for flights above four hours. SIA and SilkAir customers will also be offered the flexibility to select seats on Scoot flights online through the SIA and SilkAir websites when booking their tickets, for a fee, in accordance with Scoot’s terms and conditions.

The codeshare flights are subject to regulatory approvals. Tickets will be progressively made available through the various booking channels.

1 Amritsar, Athens, Clark, Dalian, Gold Coast, Haikou, Hangzhou, Harbin, Hat Yai, Honolulu, Ipoh, Jaipur, Jeddah, Jinan, Kaohsiung, Krabi, Kuantan, Kuching, Lucknow, Macau, Nanjing, Ningbo, Palembang, Qingdao, Quanzhou, Sapporo, Shenyang, Tianjin, Tiruchirappalli, Wuxi, Xi’an and Zhengzhou.

Tigerair (Singapore) (originally Tiger Airways) is going away. Parent Singapore Airlines has decided to consolidate its budget airline subsidiaries under the Scoot brand and name on July 25, 2017. Tigerair’s (Singapore) aircraft are being repainted in Scoot’s livery. Tigerair’s TR code will survive and will be transferred to Scoot, replacing Scoot’s TZ code.

Scoot issued this statement:

Since May 2016, Scoot and Tigerair has been working to integrate reservation systems, flight schedules and connections, conditions of carriage, check-in counters and call centers. Those integrations have since been completed.

On July 25, 2017, the integration will be finalized and Scoot and Tigerair will merge to operate under a single brand, Scoot. With the merger, Tigerair will operate under the Scoot brand, however the Scoot designator code (TZ) will be re-designated as TR.

Tigerair and our sister airline, Scoot, on November 4, 2016 announced our intention to
operate as one airline under the Scoot brand. This brand integration is expected to take place in the latter half of 2017, and presents our guests with more destination options and enables a more seamless travel experience.

All current Scoot/Tigerair bookings and flights are not impacted by this announcement. When both airlines fully integrate under a single brand, guests who have travel bookings on Tigerair will receive new booking confirmations reflecting the Scoot brand and designated airline code.

Please be assured that we will continue to provide you with great travel experiences.

Tigerair (Australia) will continue under Virgin Australia Holdings ownership.
