Scoot, Singapore Airlines’ 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 “will better the utilization of the SIA Group’s resources and present a better match of capacity demand,” SilkAir says in a statement.
SilkAir currently flies the route four times a week. Under Scoot, however, the frequency will be increased to 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 using its 787 Dreamliners for the route, which are equipped with in-flight Wi-Fi and in-seat power outlets for passengers to charge their devices.
Customers who have made advance bookings for Singapore–Hangzhou flights with SilkAir can refund their tickets or will be transferred to either Scoot or Singapore Airlines’ flights to Shanghai.
