SIA Cargo expands network with scoot partnership

Singapore Airlines Cargo will add more destinations to its network through an agreement with Scoot™ to manage its bellyhold capacity.

Scoot™ is a new medium and long haul low-cost airline based in Singapore. Scoot™ will begin commercial flights in June 2012, operating daily services between Singapore and Sydney, and five-times-weekly services between Singapore and the Gold Coast in Australia. Four-times-weekly services to Tianjin in China will be launched in the second half of 2012.

Scoot will deploy the Boeing 777-200 aircraft with a bellyhold capacity of 10 tonnes on these routes.

Singapore Airlines Cargo President Mr. Tan Kai Ping said: “Singapore Airlines Cargo is excited by the opportunity of this partnership with Scoot. The addition of Scoot's bellyhold capacity and network will provide our customers with the benefits of a wider network, and more choices in terms of frequency and capacity”.
