Get your Greek on and prepare to get outta’ here for a value-packed dream vacation as Scoot gears up to launch its first destination in Europe – Athens, the picture-perfect capital city of Greece!
Scheduled to commence on 20 June 2017, the new service between Singapore and Athens marks Scoot’s first long-haul flight between Asia Pacific and Europe, as well as the longest flight operated by a low-cost carrier (LCC) with flight distance exceeding 10,000km.
The commencement of Scoot’s services to Europe is part of the Singapore Airlines (SIA) Group’s strategic move to stimulate passenger traffic between Asia Pacific and Europe, as well as to boost connectivity through the Singapore hub.
Budget-conscious travellers will soon be able to Scoot to Greece at pocket-friendly airfares, immersing in the rich history and culture Athens has to offer. Take a trip back to ancient Greece with visits to the famed Acropolis of Athens and the legendary Temple of Apollo in Delphi, before hopping over to the many picturesque Greek islands including Mykonos and Santorini for a dose of idyllic romance. Travellers can also connect onward from Greece to other alluring cities in Europe for an extended pan-Europe vacation.
Mr Lee Lik Hsin, CEO of Budget Aviation Holdings (BAH), said, “Guests have requested us to fly to Europe for a while, and Scoot is excited to finally oblige! Scoot has devoted much thought to configuring our cabin product and services to elevate and transform the low-cost travel experience, enabled by our world-first all-787 Dreamlliner fleet, and this has positioned us well to mount our first ever long-haul flight between Asia Pacific and Europe.”
