Scoot & Tigerair To Merge July 25, 2017

5 Comments

Singapore Airlines Group has decided to consolidate two of its fully owned budget airlines to one and in the process Tigerair brand will cease to exist on July 25, 2017.

Scoot & Tiger Merger

The airline will only use the Scoot brand going forward and will continue to serve destinations using both narrow and wide-body aircraft.

You can access Scoot’s web page for the change information here.

Conclusion

It makes sense for the parent to consolidate these two budget airlines especially now when they are trying to offer transfers between their flights (and hopefully offer protection in case of delays – was huge issue for Scoot when they first started operations).

I have not flown either of these two budget carriers. Did entertain once if I should try Scoot but the fight times just weren’t convenient.

    I did the SIN-BKK route on Scoot last year, and it was quite OK in their Business/Economy Plus. Nice new airplane too!

    I flew with Scoot from NRT to TPE in their Premium cabin back in December 2015. The comfort was okay, but the warm meal included was tiny! It came with a Toblerone on the side, which was almost bigger than the main dish. I also remember the crew did not understand the concept of sparkling water at all, which I found weird. Stil, the price was definitely right for this route.
