From 1 September, Scoot is to move its Bangkok operations from Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) to Don Mueang International Airport (DMK).
Don Mueang Airport is the home base of Scoot’s partner Nok Air and soon-to-be sister airline NokScoot, so the move will provide passengers with a range of connecting options – including to more than 20 Thai towns and cities.
Campbell Wilson, CEO of Scoot, commented, “Moving to Don Mueang is both a great boost for Scoot’s customers as well as a natural step as our partnership with Nok Air strengthens, and we're especially delighted that it allows us to offer more than 20 new destinations for our guests.”
Coinciding with the move to Don Mueang, Scoot will offer seats on Nok Air's flights between Don Mueang and 21 cities in Thailand, including Chiang Rai, and Surat Thani. Customers will be able to buy, in a single transaction from Scoot's website, itineraries from Singapore through to Chiang Rai, or from Sydney to Mae Sot with travel starting on 1 September or later. Likewise, Nok Air passengers can easily fly to Singapore, Gold Coast, Sydney or Perth, or any of Scoot’s other destinations.
Scoot will be notifying all guests booked on its flights to Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport departing on or after 1st September of the change of airport, and conducting prominent advertising between now and the changeover date.
