Share this:

Scoot has appointed Discover the World as GSA for the United Kingdom and Ireland.

The low-cost subsidiary of Singapore Airlines (SIA) also announced its first UK route – the only low-cost non-stop flight between London’s Gatwick Airport and Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport.

A statement shared by Discover The World read that searches for holidays from the UK to Thailand have increased by 112% since the lifting of travel restrictions for UK travellers.

Scoot’s entry on this popular leisure route comes hot on the heels of the borders reopening between the UK and Thailand, enabling travel without quarantine at either end.

Aiden Walsh, Head of Airline Development at Discover the World, commented, “We are delighted to be partnering with Scoot to develop the sales and marketing strategy for the UK and Irish markets. 

“This new direct, low-cost award-winning service is going to be extremely popular for the UK and Irish markets. We are also excited with the connection opportunities from Bangkok and Singapore especially to Melbourne and Sydney which are also very popular destinations from the UK & Irish markets.”

The new Scoot flights will commence on December 16, 2021. This will be followed by three weekly scheduled seasonal services from March 2022.

All services will be operated with Boeing 787 Dreamliners offering both economy and Scoot plus cabins, sporting features such as inflight Wi-Fi and the ability to upgrade to Scoot plus or to Scoot-in-Silence – Scoot’s quiet-zone.

To celebrate the launch, Scoot has released attractive fares to Bangkok starting from GBP 170 one-way on economy, inclusive of taxes.

Scoot Vice President of Sales Lee Yong Sin said, “Scoot is delighted to commemorate our entry to the UK with our partnership with Discover the World. We believe there is much pent-up demand for travel, and we look forward to providing additional travel options amidst the expansion of our network to better connect our customers between Europe and Asia.

“The intent represents our commitment as a leading low-cost carrier to provide our customers with safe and reliable high-quality Scootitude travel experiences across our network, bolstered by the knowledge and expertise of Discover the World.”

Gordon Stalker, Discover the World’s Director for the UK, Ireland and Benelux commented, “We can’t wait to introduce the UK and Irish trade partners to the Scoot product. Our team will be actively engaging with trade partners focused on setting up trade partners to sell the December seasonal flights and the scheduled flights in March!”
