Scoot responds to air travel bubble agreement between Singapore and India with the resumption of its Singapore-Hyderabad service, on four-times weekly flights. The service took effect on 30 November 2021 and is operated by Scoot’s A320neo aircraft.
Scoot also resumes its Singapore-Tiruchirappalli service with three-times weekly flights effective 2 December 2021. It will be increased to five-times weekly from 2 January 2022.
Additional flights to be activated in January next year include its Singapore-Amritsar service with five-times weekly flights operated by Scoot’s Boeing 787 Dreamliners.
Pre-Covid services to India included Amritsar, Coimbatore, Hyderabad, Tiruchirappalli, Trivandrum, and Visakhapatnam. Scoot will announce other flight restarts accordingly to ensure safe international air travel.
Scoot’s flight restarts come at a time that sees the industry reporting on the pent-up demand for outbound trips by Indian travellers, particularly the Gen Zs and millennials.
Scoot flights are subject to regulatory approvals and are operated as non-Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) flights. Passengers on these flights must meet entry requirements into Singapore, and are subject to prevailing health control measures — including a seven-day quarantine upon arrival.
All passengers flying to India from Singapore must also ensure that they meet the prevailing entry requirements.
