Scoot Into Your Winter Holidays With More Flights to North Asia and on the Pikachu Jet


So, what’s up with Scoot these days? Well, they just expanded flight routes to China, South Korea, and Japan, as well as newly added service to Lombok and Makassar, Indonesia. Oh, and a Pikachu Jet that will take you to Tokyo, Seoul, and Taipei three times a month.

More flights, new route launches, and resumptions are all being executed by Scoot, Singapore Airlines’ (SIA) low-cost subsidiary, to accommodate the rising demand for air travel. Scoot will begin offering twice-weekly service to both Lombok and Makassar, Indonesia, beginning on 16 October 2022. Further, on 15 and 24 October and 2022, respectively, twice-weekly flights to Yogyakarta and Pekanbaru will resume. After adding these new cities, Scoot will serve a total of eight destinations in Indonesia.

Northern Asia exposure

Scoot passengers can expect more flights to North Asia as a result of loosened border restrictions in Hong Kong, Japan, and Taiwan. Scoot currently operates four weekly flights to Hong Kong, as well as daily non-stop flights to Tokyo (Narita) and Seoul (Incheon), five weekly flights to Osaka, and three weekly flights to Jeju.

Scoot has also increased the frequency of flights to Mainland China beginning of the 26th of September 2022.

Scoot will boost its number of flights to Tianjin to twice weekly as of next month and begin service to Hangzhou (on 3 October), Zhengzhou (on 12 October), and Wuhan (on 13 October). Before the pandemic, Scoot served 21 destinations in Greater China; by mid-October, about half of those will be operating again.

Scoot will boost the number of themed flights on the Pikachu Jet in response to the success of the Pokémon Air Adventures, a collaboration with The Pokémon Company. Starting in November, fans of Pokémon will have additional opportunities to experience the unique flights on their next vacation. The Pikachu Jet will fly on three routes per month: Singapore to Tokyo, Singapore to Taipei, and Singapore to Seoul.
