Scoot starts flying to India’s Pink City

Jaipur becomes airline’s third new Indian destination of 2016!

Scoot has taken the next step in its Indian expansion strategy with the launch of its inaugural flight to Jaipur.

The low-cost carrier landed in India’s Pink City for the first time on 2 October 2016, following a direct flight from Singapore. Initially, Scoot will operate this route three times a week, before rising to four weekly flights on 30 October 2016. Like all Scoot’s routes, the Jaipur service will be operated using a Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft.

Scoot first started flying to India earlier this year, with direct flights to Chennai and Amritsar, so Jaipur becomes its third destination in the country.

“The response from Chennai and Amritsar has been phenomenal so far and with the Jaipur launch, our spirits are soaring,” said Bharath Mahadevan, Scoot’s country head for India. “We see India as a promising market, especially with its youthful population who enjoy travelling and exploring new destinations.

“We are hopeful of a strong foothold in India with our exceptional offers and features like in-flight connectivity and in-seat power,” he added.

Srithar GB, the Singapore Tourism Board’s regional director for South Asia, Middle East & Africa, commented; “India is an important market for Singapore and there is strong growth potential in the Tier 2 cities. For the first half of 2016, visitor arrivals from Tier 2 cities registered a 10% growth compared to the same period in 2015. We are confident that the launch of Scoot’s direct flight between Jaipur and Singapore today, coupled with STB’s tactical efforts including joint marketing partnership with Scoot, will help promote travel to Singapore.”

Scoot’s flights will initially depart Singapore every Monday, Friday and Sunday at 2130 and arrive in Jaipur at 0035 the next day. The return flights then leave Rajasthani city every Monday, Tuesday and Saturday at 0135 and arrive back in Singapore at 0940.

Travellers from Jaipur will also be able to connect to destinations across Asia Pacific, including Australia, via Singapore’s Changi Airport.
