Scoot, the low-cost subsidiary of Singapore Airlines (SIA), commenced revenue flights with its new Embraer E190-E2 fleet earlier this week.

The first aircraft, named Explorer 3.0, departed Singapore’s Changi Airport, bound for Krabi, Thailand.

“We would like to congratulate Scoot on this momentous occasion,” said Martyn Holmes, Chief Commercial Officer of Embraer Commercial Aviation.

“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.”

Holmes represented Embraer at Scoot’s E190-E2 launch event which was held at Changi Airport prior to the departure of the first revenue flight.

The operation of Explorer 3.0 will see an increase in 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 will commence revenue flights soon.
