Scoot’s New Moussaka-inspired Jet to Fly Athens-Singapore in June

Lee Lik Hsin, Scoot CEO and Dinesh Keskar, Boeing Commerical Airplanes Senior Vice President of Asia Pacific and India Sales celebrate the delivery of Scoot’s newest aircraft.

Singapore Airlines-owned low-cost carrier Scoot is welcoming four new aircraft to its fleet, including a Boeing 787-8 named “Mous-Scoot-Ka” (inspired by popular Greek dish moussaka), as part of its ongoing expansion program which foresees long-haul services starting with non-stop flights between Singapore and Athens in June. The Greek capital is Scoot’s first European destination.

Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner’s bunks for the crew

Complete with bunks for its crew, the Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner was unveiled during a recent handover ceremony at Boeing’s Everett Delivery Center in Washington. The plane landed at Singapore Changi Airport later that day and is expected to handle the company’s long-haul flights.

“Our vision of serving not just passengers in the region, but also those beyond, is being realized with Mous-Scoot-Ka and its fellow crew-bunk-fitted 787 Dreamliners that will be joining our fleet this year,” said Scoot CEO Lee Lik Hsin.

On his part, Dinesh Keskar, Senior Vice President, Asia Pacific & India Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes, underlined the 787 Dreamliner’s long range, passenger-preferred features that include large, dimmable windows and fuel efficiency.

Keskar said the features “enable Scoot to continue to be a game changer in the low-cost carrier industry and profitably open new nonstop routes such as Singapore to Athens.”

The budget airline is expecting three more Dreamliners – able to accommodate 329 guests with 18 passengers in its ScootBiz section – to be delivered this year.

Asian Aviation is the general sales agent for Singapore Airlines and Scoot in Greece and Cyprus.
