“We are pleased to enter the U.S. market through Hawai‘i,” said Mr. Lee Lik Hsin, Scoot CEO. “We’ve heard so much excitement among our frequent fliers since announcing the Honolulu route and we wanted to offer Hawai‘i locals a chance to experience our airline and visit one of our key destinations at an affordable rate.”
Scoot will operate four times weekly flights to Singapore with a stopover in Osaka on a twin-aisled Boeing 787 Dreamliner. This flight will be Scoot’s entry to the Hawai‘i market and Hawai‘i’s first direct flight connecting the state to Singapore, a major Southeast Asian city and tourist destination.
