Scoot reduces network in December, flying to only 12 cities

Singapore’s low cost carrier Scoot has announced its December 2020 flying schedule, with some bad news.

While the airline have been making slight increase in its network in the past months, December marked the first month that Scoot has regressed on that path, cutting seven cities from its network and walked back on a few planned starts.

The airline will operate some 130+ passenger flights for the final month in December, 20% less than in November 2020.

Ever since international travel slowed to a screeching halt when Covid-19 hit, airlines have been slowly regaining ground on their network so this step back is kind of a surprise as Asia Pacific is seeing slow signs of recovery.

Which destinations will Scoot stop flying to?

According to Scoot’s latest schedule published early November, Scoot will be ending services to the following destinations:

DestinationLast service to destination
Kaohsiung, Taiwan7 Nov (ended)
Osaka, Japan (to/from Kaohsiung)7 Nov (ended)
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia16 Nov
Clark, Philippines9 Nov (ended)
Manila, Philippines3 Dec
Perth, Australia4 Dec

Scoot has also previously planned for a weekly service to Sydney that was supposed to commence 2 Nov, but this service never took off.

The airline has also previously operated a handful of services to various cities in Indonesia such as Palembang and Yogyakarta, but these are nowhere to be found in its December schedule.

While this seems like a reduction in network, customers can still choose to fly with Singapore Airlines, which continue to operate services to all the destinations above except Kaohsiung and Clark.

Scoot’s December schedule

With the termination of the services above, Scoot will end up operating to only 12 cities in seven countries/territories:

Hong Kong SAR
JapanTokyo- Narita (via Taipei)
South KoreaSeoul-Incheon (via Taipei)
