Budget airline launches new China routes

14th Jan 2013

A budget airline that flies between Singapore and China is celebrating the launch of two new destinations after having to suspend flights for over a month.

Scoot, which is owned by Singapore Airlines, faced a long wait for regulatory approval before it could take off again. However, passengers can now book flights to Qingdao and Shenyang in east and north eastern China.

Passengers were told last November that Scoot, which is the only budget airline to fly non-stop to Qingdao, that their flights were cancelled while they waited for approval.

Scoot's CEO, Campbell Wilson, said the Chinese New Year made it an especially good time to launch the airline's new destinations.

The new route will see passengers leave Singapore Changi Airport at 1.30am and arrive at Qingdao International Airport at 7am, and for those travelling on to Shenyang, the flight lands at 10.15am.

For the return journey, passengers board at Shenyang Taoxian International Airport at 11.20am and arrive in Singapore at 8pm after making a stop in Qingdao.
