Scoot to Launch New Service Between Singapore and Jeju, South Korea From June 15, 2022
Scoot will launch three weekly flights between Singapore and Jeju Island in South Korea from June 15, 2022. The route will be operated with a 236-seat Airbus A321neo, featuring premium black leather seats, large overhead bins, and ambient lighting.
On Wednesday (May 18, 2022), Scoot, Singapore Airlines’ LCC, announced the launch of new service between Singapore (SIN) and Jeju Island (CJU) in South Korea. The new Jeju Island service complements the carrier’s existing four weekly flights between Singapore and Seoul. Jeju is known as the ‘Hawaii of East Asia’ and is a popular year-round holiday destination, with appealing experiences for multi-generational travelers, adventurers and holidaymakers alike. South Korea’s largest island, Jeju is a UNESCO world heritage site and offers a unique local atmosphere, as well as a stunning natural environment. With the lifting of the temporary suspension of visa-free entry into Jeju from June 1st, visitors will enjoy a hassle-free travel experience.
In Wednesday’s announcment, Scoot’s Chief Commercial Officer, Calvin Chan, said,
“South Korea boasts a variety of successful cultural exports with the K-wave fandom that has turned into a worldwide phenomenon, in addition to gastronomic highlights. We are excited about the opportunity to serve demand between Singapore and Jeju, connecting customers directly to the Island, a renowned location for popular K-pop music videos and K-drama settings. The launch of our Jeju flight service is a prelude to Scoot’s celebrations as we commemorate a decade of flights this June. We have spent the last ten years defying the norms of low-cost travel, while continuing to offer our customers connectivity, flexibility, and the highest standards of safety. We look forward to continuing to support the revitalization of international tourism, and further grow our network for essential and leisure travel.”
The Singapore-Jeju route will operate on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays from June 15th through October 28, 2022, and will be serviced with a 236-seat Airbus A321neo.
