Scoot operates to 20 cities in October, November

Low-cost carrier Scoot will serve a total of 20 cities in 8 countries & territories from Singapore over the next two months, it said in an update today (24 September). The SIA Group’s budget subsidiary will be operating between 170 to 180 flights over the next two months, its largest network since April when there were only two destinations. Having said that, some of the 20 destinations will continue to be served only sparingly, either by a weekly service, or less frequently. Destinations The two new destinations commencing October are Semarang in Indonesia and Tianjin in China. Semarang was originally served by Silkair before services were suspended, and was scheduled to start in July as part of the transition from Silkair to Scoot.

Scoot removes all payment processing fees with immediate effect

From today onwards, Scoot will no longer be charging a payment processing fee for its airfares. You’ll no longer need to pay any additional fees regardless of which method of payment you choose to use, whichever sector you buy, and from which city you booked it from. Singapore customers were previously charged S$10 per person, per flight for payment made through selected credit cards and PayPal, so that means that if you were booking a return ticket, you would have to spend an additional $20 on top of whatever fare and add-ons you chose. With this change, Jetstar and AirAsia, two of the other key low cost carriers, remain to be the only ones still charging a ‘convenience’ fee for using credit card payments – it remains to be seen if they will follow suit.
