Scoot, the low-cost subsidiary of Singapore Airlines, has announced the progressive resumption of passenger services between Singapore and India, following the agreement of an air travel bubble arrangement between the two countries. The airline will resume its Singapore-Hyderabad service with four-times weekly flights effective 29 November 2021, operated by Scoot’s A320 aircraft.
It will also resume its Singapore-Tiruchirappalli service with three-times weekly flights effective 2 December 2021, increasing to five-times weekly from 2 January 2022. These flights will be operated by Scoot’s A320neo aircraft. Starting January 2022, it will also resume its Singapore-Amritsar service with five-times weekly flights operated by Scoot’s Boeing 787 Dreamliners, promising the added widebody comfort in both Economy and ScootPlus cabins.
With these flights, customers will have the option to once again visit and fly from both the Northern and Southern regions of India. All the flights are subject to regulatory approvals and will be operated as non-Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) flights. Customers on these flights must meet entry requirements into Singapore, and will be subject to prevailing health control measures including seven days of quarantine in Singapore. All customers flying to India from Singapore must also ensure that they meet the prevailing entry requirements.
Pre-COVID, Scoot operated six passenger services to India – Amritsar, Coimbatore, Hyderabad, Tiruchirappalli, Trivandrum, and Visakhapatnam. Scoot is committed to resuming its other routes between Singapore and India soon, to support the safe and gradual resumption of international air travel, to reunite loved ones across borders and better support pent-up demand for both leisure and business travels.
