Honolulu service is among the five new destinations announced by Scott Airlines in conjunction with the completion of the Scoot-Tigerair integration under the single Scoot brand. The other four are Kuching and Kuantan in Malaysia, Harbin in Northeast China and Palembang in Indonesia.

So get your hula ready as Scoot launches ticket sales for Honolulu, the airline’s
second long-haul destination after Athens, Greece, which debuted in June this year. The
new service between Singapore and Honolulu also marks Scoot’s maiden entry into the
United States of America.

The four-times-weekly flight serviced by the wide-bodied, twin-aisled Boeing 787 Dreamliner
from Singapore to Honolulu with a stopover in Osaka is slated to commence on 19
December 2017. Once the Honolulu route starts, Scoot will operate non-stop Singapore–
Osaka service, in addition to its existing three-times-weekly services to Osaka via Bangkok
and Kaohsiung. The total frequency to Osaka from Singapore will, therefore, increase from
6-times-weekly to 10-times-weekly.

“Say ‘Aloha’ to Hawaii as Scoot makes our entry into the USA with our second long-haul
route,” said Mr Lee Lik Hsin, Scoot CEO. “With the completion of the merger, Scoot now
provides excellent connectivity with 60 destinations across 17 countries. Our network is set
to grow further as our fleet of Boeing 787 Dreamliners and A320 aircraft is expected to be
doubled in the next 5 years. Scoot now owns a combined fleet of 38 aircraft with 44 more on
order, and this means more exciting destinations, both long and short-haul, are in the
pipeline.”
