scoot takeoffScoot, the low-cost arm of the Singapore Airlines Group, commenced four-times-weekly direct services to maiden U.S. destination, via non-stop Osaka services from Singapore.

Scoot’s first U.S. flight has departed Singapore for Honolulu today and is scheduled to land in Daniel K. Inouye International (HNL) Airport at about 7.30am Hawai‘i time (1.30am Singapore time tomorrow). The inaugural flight marks the start of Scoot’s four-times-weekly operations between Singapore and Honolulu via Osaka, as well as Scoot’s first non-stop Singapore-Osaka services on top of existing three-times-weekly services via Bangkok and Kaohsiung. The Singapore-Osaka-Honolulu route will be operated on a twin-aisled Boeing 787 Dreamliner, with a total capacity of 329 seats.

“We are excited about entering the U.S. market with a destination as special as Hawai‘i,” said Mr Lee Lik Hsin, Scoot CEO. “We look forward to connecting our two communities which are both known for their rich multi-cultural heritage. We are confident that travellers from Singapore and the region are eager to visit Hawai‘i as a world-famous vacation destination.”

In true Scootitude fashion, passengers onboard the inaugural flight will enjoy inflight activities and games with prizes, and on arrival in Honolulu, they will be greeted with fresh flower lei, Hawaiian music, hula, and refreshments. To commemorate Scoot’s entry to Hawai‘i, it will be making a donation of USD 20,000 to a local non-profit organization, Nā Kama Kai. Nā Kama Kai educates Hawai‘i’s children about the importance of taking care of Hawai‘i’s fragile natural environment.
