Scoot launches revenue flights with new Embraer E190-E2 fleet

Scoot, the low-cost subsidiary of Singapore Airlines (SIA), has commenced revenue flights with its new Embraer E190-E2 fleet, with the first aircraft, named Explorer 3.0, departing Singapore’s Changi Airport for Krabi, Thailand, on 7 May 2024.

Martyn Holmes, Chief Commercial Officer of Embraer Commercial Aviation, congratulated Scoot on this milestone, saying, “We are proud to see the modern and fuel-efficient E2 aircraft grace the skies over Singapore and Southeast Asia and would like to thank all the involved stakeholders who worked tirelessly to make this possible.”

Mr. Holmes represented Embraer at Scoot’s E190-E2 launch event held at Changi Airport before the departure of the first revenue flight.

The introduction of Explorer 3.0 will increase the frequency of Scoot’s flights to Krabi and Hat Yai from 7 times weekly to 10 times weekly for both destinations.

Scoot’s second E190-E2 arrived in Singapore on 29 April and is expected to commence revenue flights in the near future.

The addition of the fuel-efficient and modern E190-E2 aircraft to Scoot’s fleet marks a significant step in the airline’s growth and expansion plans, enabling it to better serve its customers in the region.
