Scoot & Tigerair To Merge July 25, 2017


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.

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.
