Scoot has announced plans to expand its route network in China, with the addition of flights to Qingdao and Shenyang.

The new Singapore-based low-cost carrier, which last week commenced flights to Tianjin, will continue its growth in China’s thriving northeastern cities. The new Singapore-Shenyang-Qingdao route will operate three times a week from 27 November 2012 using Scoot’s two-class Boeing 777 aircraft.

“Qingdao and Shenyang are very exiting additions to Scoot’s fast-growing network, and it’s great to be launching two more China routes,” said Campbell Wilson, Scoot’s CEO.

Shenyang, the capital of Liaoning province, has a population of approximately 8.1 million people, while Qingdao – the Shandong province port city and home of China’s famous Tsing Tao beer – is home to an estimated 8.7m people.

Scoot, which launched earlier this year, currently offers flights to four destinations – Sydney, Gold Coast, Bangkok and Tianjin. Flights to Taipei and Tokyo are also due to commence later this year.
