Scoot, the Singapore-based low-cost carrier, has added two new Asian cities to its route map: Osaka and Kaohsiung.

The airline started flying to Osaka on 8 July, when flight TZ298 took off from Singapore’s Changi Airport. The service will now run three times a week (every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday), with a stop in Bangkok.

Then a day later on 9 July, the inaugural flight TZ288 departed Singapore bound for Kaohsiung, the second largest city in Taiwan. This service will now run every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, and will continue onwards from Kaohsiung to Osaka, meaning that Scoot now flies to the Japanese city six times a week.

Both routes will be operated by Scoot’s new Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, which offers 375 seats in two classes, and in-flight Wi-Fi.

“Scoot is thrilled to offer travellers the historical and culinary delights of Osaka, and the natural scenic beauty of Kaohsiung,” said the airline’s CEO, Campbell Wilson. “We’re excited to bring our Osaka and Kaohsiung guests the Scoot experience – brand-new aircraft, a huge selection of frills, unbeatable value airfares and of course our fun and unique attitude.”

Scoot will continue to upgrade its services to Japan and Taiwan in September this year, when its starts deploying its Dreamliners to Taipei and Tokyo.

The addition of Kaohsiung and Osaka boosts Scoot’s total network to 15 destinations in seven countries.
