Scoot is preparing to launch its very first long-haul flight to Europe. Athens is the first destination on the list. The airline will fly from the capital of Greece to Singapore with four flights per week. A comfortable Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft will be used on the route. The planes are fitted with eight crew bunks and a total of 329 seats, including 18 in ScootBiz. These aircraft don’t feature seat-back in-flight entertainment, but they all offer Wi-Fi and in-seat power outlets.

Guests have requested us to fly to Europe for a while, and Scoot is excited to finally oblige. Our world-first all-787 Dreamliner fleet has positioned us well to mount our first ever long-haul flight between Asia Pacific and Europe – said Lee Lik Hsin, CEO of Budget Aviation Holdings (BAH), which oversees Scoot and Tigerair.

According to CAPA – the Centre for Aviation, Scoot will become the first low cost carrier to operate flights in excess of 10,000km since Air Asia X axed its London and Paris services back in 2012.

Routing:
Athens – Singapore – Athens

From Tuesday to the end of the month, Scoot is offering one-way fares to Athens starting from €198 for travel from 20 Jun 2017 to 31 Oct 2017. To promote the new route, the low cost carrier has launched a 10% sale on selected FlyBag and FlyBagEat fares (packages that include luggage and food) to/from Athens. To take advantage of this promo, simply use the code ‘GREEKON’.
