SINGAPORE, 24 January 2022: Quarantine-free international travel between Singapore and Queensland, Australia, for vaccinated passengers will resume in February following an announcement late last week,
Scoot will resume three weekly flights between Singapore and Gold Coast starting 14 February and to mark the return of flights, Scoot is promoting lead-in fares starting from AUD248/SGD 239.
Other Vaccinated Travel Lanes from Singapore will reopen in February with announcements due any time now.
Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, Scoot continued to operate flights in and out of Australia, allowing key trade channels to remain open and connected, thus supporting essential travel.
The reinstatement of flights between Singapore and the Gold Coast allows Scoot to better support business and leisure travels needs. Besides Gold Coast, Scoot also operates services to three other Australian cities – Melbourne, Perth, and Sydney, within our larger network of 70 destinations.
Scoot chief executive officer Campbell Wilson said: “Scoot is delighted to be the first airline to resume international flights to and from the Gold Coast, which will allow us to better support pent up demand for a myriad of business and leisure travel needs. Having flown more than 65 million customers with over close to a decade of flights, Australia remains a much-loved travel destination. Scoot served close to 130,000 travellers between Singapore and Gold Coast alone in 2019, just before the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. With our current network of 70 destinations, Scoot is looking forward to providing customers with opportunities to once again reignite their wanderlust, reunite with loved ones, and reconnect with concordant business counterparts.”
Queensland Airports Limited CEO, Chris Mills, welcomed news of Scoot returning to the Gold Coast next month. “We can’t wait to see Scoot again and welcome visitors from Singapore back to the Gold Coast,” he said. “It is fantastic to have a date for Scoot recommencing services, so soon after the Queensland border was reopened to international travellers. Many locals will be keen to book their trip, whether it’s to catch up with family and friends or experience everything Singapore has to offer. And the Gold Coast will be a very attractive destination for international visitors.”
