Scoot launches inaugural Kuching-Singapore flight

KUCHING: Scoot, the low-cost arm of the Singapore Airlines Group, launched its inaugural flight from Singapore to Kuching, the first-ever destination in East Malaysia for the award-winning value airline on Sunday night.

The new Singapore-Kuching route with daily direct flights will be Scoot’s fifth destination in Malaysia, after Ipoh, Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi and Penang.

The inaugural flight landed at the Kuching International Airport (KCH) at about 9.55pm on October 29, 2017, with passengers on Scoot’s A320 aircraft receiving a warm welcome with a traditional dance organised by the Sarawak Tourism Board.

Present during the welcoming ceremony were permanent secretary to the Ministry of Tourism, Arts, and Culture Datu Ik Pahon Joyik, Sarawak Tourism Board acting CEO Mary Wan Mering and Scoot chief commercial officer Vinod Kannan.

Commenting on Scoot’s inaugural flight to Kuching, Vinod said, “Malaysia is a very important market for us as we see growing interest from Singaporeans to travel to different parts of our neighbouring country and vice versa.

“Hence, we are excited to launch our services to Kuching, which brings us a step closer to our objective of steadily increasing our network in the region. Through this, we also hope to continue enriching our Malaysian guests’ travel experiences with a healthy dose of our unique Scootitude on board.”
