Scoot lands at BER

The airline is set to begin services to Singapore in August, with plans to introduce nonstop flights in the near future 

Singapore Airlines’ low-cost subsidiary, Scoot has landed at Berlin Brandenburg Airport, expanding the choice of flights from the hub.  

The carrier is set to operate three flights per week from August 10 to Singapore via Athens.

“We are delighted that Scoot is back and will first connect the capital region with Singapore once more,” said Engelbert Lutke Daldrup, chief executive officer of BER. “Several airlines are increasingly interested in including BER in their flight schedules right now. This demonstrates that even following the Coronavirus pandemic, the capital region is an economically attractive target for airlines and that further destinations will be added to BER in the months ahead. 

“As the global containment of the pandemic progresses, it will just be a matter of time until Scoot flies direct from BER to Singapore, and other airlines also offer long-haul flights from BER.” 

Campbell Wilson, CEO of Scoot, added: “We are very much looking forward to returning to Berlin. Connecting the German capital with Singapore via Athens will enable Scoot to meet the high demand for flights between Germany and Greece in the summer season once travel restrictions within Europe have been relaxed. At the same time, we are serving the demand for travel from Europe to Singapore, allowing us to gradually expand our network of routes again.” 

Since May, Scoot has been reintroducing long-haul flights from Europe. As soon as further restrictions are lifted, the airline plans to offer nonstop services from BER to Singapore.
