The Scoot Airlines brings a good news for the Lucknowites. The airlines began to operate from Lucknow on Wednesday, connecting the city with Australia, Malaysia, Hong Kong and China.

The Tigerair and Scoot (both subsidiary of Singapore Airlines) have merged to give Lucknowites the pleasure of flying to Singapore at just ₹5599, to Bali at ₹8499, to Hong Kong at ₹9,199, to Melblourne at ₹10,499 and to Sydney at ₹11,199.

In addition to this, Lucknowites will also be able to purchase ticket for direct flight to Honolulu in USA, Harbin in China, Kuching and Kuantan in Malaysia and Palembang in Indonesia. This will help them save at least 20% of the money which they initially used to spend in purchasing two tickets.

However, this special officer is limited till August 6 only. The passengers boarding for Australia, Hongkong and Bali will have to change the flight in Singapore.

The merging of Tigerair with Scoot was announced in Singapore on July 25, but in Lucknow Tigerair merged with Scoot on Wednesday.

Country head of Scoot Airlines, Bharath Mahadevan, said, “The start of scoot flights from Lucknow marks the completion of the Scoot-Tigerair integration process that began in May last year, when the airlines were brought under a common holding company, Budget Aviation Holdings.”

Now, Tigerair’s website redirects the visitors to Scoot’s webpage. Scoot Airlines started its operations in India last year.

Besides, Scoot would start operating from five new destinations by June 2018 including Honolulu, Scoot’s maiden US destination, and Harbin in Northeast China. The remaining three are short-haul destinations– Kuching and Kuantan in Malaysia, and Palembang in Indonesia. Lucknowites would be able to travel to 18 countries where Scoot operates, said Mahadevan.

He added, “We open up a brand new chapter for Scoot by repainting all aircrafts operated by Tigerair in the Scoot livery. Building on what Tigerair and the old Scoot had achieved since their respective inceptions, we have grown much stronger after they merged.”
