From 8 July, Scoot is launching two new three-times weekly services between Singapore and Osaka (the carrier’s second Japanese destination) on its new 787 Dreamliners.
On Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays the service will operate via Bangkok. Flights will leave from Singapore at 09:05, landing in Thailand at 10:10. The flight will then depart Bangkok at 11:30 and arrive in Osaka at 18:50. The return route will leave Osaka at 20:25, landing in Bangkok at 00:05 (+1). The flight between Bangkok and Singapore will depart at 01:15 (+1) and arrive at 04:40 (+1).
On Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays the service will operate via Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Flights will leave from Singapore at 06:15, landing in Taiwan at 10:25. The flight will then depart Kaohsiung at 11:35 and arrive in Osaka at 15:15. The return route will leave Osaka at 16:15, landing in Kaohsiung at 18:55. The flight between Kaohsiung and Singapore will take off at 20:05 and arrive at 00:25 (+1).
“Osaka has long been on our radar, and we're excited to add it to our network,” explained Scoot CEO, Campbell Wilson. “Besides Osaka's many attractions, such as Dotonbori food district, its castle, and Universal Studios Japan, it is also the gateway to the stunning historic capital of Kyoto with its many temples and sights. When combined with our existing service to Tokyo, Scoot's guests can now complete the 'golden triangle' of Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka without backtracking.”
