Scoot Outlines European Intentions With Athens Service

Singapore-based low cost carrier Scoot has revealed plans to begin flying to Athens next summer, signaling its expansion beyond Asia Pacific and further afield to Europe.


Scheduled to commence on 20 June 2017, the airline will fly nonstop to the Greek capital 4 times a week. Flight TZ 702 will depart Singapore Changi International Airport at 0200 hrs on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays, arriving in Athens at 0830 hrs. The return service, TZ 701, takes off from Athens at 1200 hrs and landing back in Singapore at 0425 hrs the next morning.


Scoot will deploy its 329-seat, 2-class Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner equipped with onboard Wi-Fi and in-seat power on the route, which it takes over from parent Singapore Airlines. The flights will also be sole budget non-stop connection between Asia and Europe, as well as the longest air route operated by a low cost carrier.


Since its inception in 2012, Scoot has rapidly expanded its network and today serves 20 destinations in 8 countries from Singapore with its fleet of Boeing 787 Dreamliners. In addition to Athens, the airline is poised to begin service to Dalian, Jaipur and Sapporo later this year.
