The vibrant and innovative travel experience offered by Scoot, Asia/Pacific’s low cost airline, is set to get bigger and better from 25 July. Scoot and Tigerair aim to complete their integration and operate all flights under the Scoot brand, subject to final regulatory approval.

With this final milestone in the integration process, the airlines will begin operating under a common license or Air Operator Certificate (AOC). Consequently, the flight designator code for Scoot flights will be changed from the current TZ to TR, the code currently used for Tigerair flights. All flight schedules remain unchanged. Scoot website – www.flyscoot.com – will be the sole booking platform for all flights currently operated by Scoot and Tigerair.

The existing Scoot-Tigerair check-in counters will also reflect a single Scoot brand. In addition, guests can look forward to a refreshed look for the friendly Scoot crew, or Scootees, with a new uniform rolled out in celebration of Scoot’s new chapter ahead. These latest developments will wrap up the integration efforts of Scoot and Tigerair since May 2016, when they were brought under a common holding company, Budget Aviation Holdings.

The integrated Scoot fleet will consist of Boeing 787 Dreamliner and Airbus A320 family aircraft. Currently, destinations such as Bangkok, Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Taipei will continue to be operated on both B787 and A320 aircraft. The aircraft type operated for each flight will be indicated during the online flight selection and booking process. As part of the integration, the Airbus A320 family aircraft currently operated by Tigerair will also be dressed in Scoot’s livery, reflecting the Scoot name and signature bright yellow curves. The repainting will be carried out progressively and is expected to be completed by mid-2018.
