Singaporean budget airline Scoot has announced that six Southeast Asian destinations will be served by its new Embraer E190-E2 aircraft.

This includes Koh Samui and Sibu, two new destinations for the airline, with the existing routes for the new aircraft being Hat Yai, Kuantan, Krabi and Miri.

E190-E2 services are expected to commence in May, upon delivery of the model in April.

The addition of Koh Samui and Sibu brings the network of the Singapore Airlines subsidiary to 69 destinations.

Leslie Thng, Scoot CEO, said: “We are delighted to unveil the first six destinations to be helmed by our new Embraer E190-E2s to cities in Malaysia and Thailand, including two exciting additions to our network.

“This marks a new chapter of growth for Scoot and the SIA Group, and a significant step in strengthening our presence and connectivity in the region.

“Our fleet expansion reflects our confidence that the demand for air travel will continue to grow within this region.

“We will continue to seek new opportunities and push boundaries, so as to connect our customers to even more destinations at the same great value in the future.”

These additions will give the airline a total of 103 weekly flights to Malaysia and 92 weekly flights to Thailand by June 2024.
