Scoot has joined Singapore Airlines to offer flights into Queensland, which since 22 January 2022 opened its gates to receive international visitors, who need not quarantine once they show proof of full vaccination.

Locals may also freely travel to Queensland from anywhere within Australia. Previously, travellers would still need to apply for a border pass, and show proof of a negative Covid-19 test.

The first airline to resume international flights to and from Gold Coast, Scoot will be offering three times weekly flight services between Singapore and Gold Coast with effect from 14 February 2022. Fares will start from S$239 (US$178, tax included).

This adds to Scoot's existing Singapore services to Melbourne, Perth, and Sydney.

"Having flown more than 65 million customers with over close to a decade of flights, Australia remains a much-loved travel destination. Scoot served close to 130,000 travellers between Singapore and Gold Coast alone in 2019, just before the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic," said Scoot Chief Executive Officer, Campbell Wilson.

Queensland Airports Limited CEO, Chris Mills, added “It is fantastic to have a date for Scoot recommencing services, so soon after the Queensland border was reopened to international travellers. Many locals will be keen to book their trip, whether it’s to catch up with family and friends or experience everything Singapore has to offer. And the Gold Coast will be a very attractive destination for international visitors.”

Scoot's parent company, Singapore Airlines currently operates flights from Singapore to Brisbane (Queensland), Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney.
