Scoot, Singapore Airlinesâ€™ long-haul low-cost subsidiary, will start flying from Singapore to Hangzhou in October, taking over the route from SilkAir, another subsidiary of Singapore Airlines.
The move â€świll better the utilization of the SIA Groupâ€™s resources and present a better match of capacity demand,â€ť SilkAir says in a statement.
SilkAir currently flies the route four times a week. Under Scoot, however, the frequencyÂ will be increased toÂ five-times weekly. It will depart from Singapore every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 5:10 p.m. and will arrive in Hangzhou at 9:45 p.m. Return flights are scheduled to depart Hangzhou at 11:00 p.m. and land in Singapore at 3.55 a.m.
Scoot will be usingÂ its 787 Dreamliners for the route, which areÂ equipped withÂ in-flight Wi-Fi and in-seat power outlets for passengers to charge their devices.
Customers who have made advance bookings for Singaporeâ€“Hangzhou flights with SilkAir can refund their tickets or will be transferred to either Scoot or Singapore Airlinesâ€™ flights to Shanghai.
