Singaporean low-cost carrier Scoot – a subsidiary of Singapore Airlines – has started flights from Singapore Changi Airport to Berlin Tegel Airport.
The carrier will operate the route four times a week with a Boeing 787-8. It is Scoot’s third long-haul service and its second route in Europe. It already flies to Athens and Honolulu.
Scoot chief commercial officer, Vinod Kannan said: “As the most exciting city in the world for millennials, the addition of Berlin resonates with the Scoot brand, and opens up yet another part of the continent for us since we launched Athens exactly a year ago.
“For travellers from both the Asia Pacific and Europe, Scoot offers a low-cost option to travel across our global network and pay only for the products and services that they need, without compromising on comfort and safety.”
Berlin-Brandenburg Airport management board chairman, Engelbert Lütke Daldrup said: “The new link is a major advance for the connectivity of the capital region. Changi Airport in Singapore is the principal Asian hub. Destinations in Asia and Australia are now easier to reach from Berlin.”
