Tigerair and Scoot to merge and operate under single brand
From July 25, the flight code for Scoot flights will change from the current TZ to TR, the code currently used for Tigerair flights.
All flight schedules will remain unchanged, however the Scoot website and call centre will be the sole booking platform for all flights currently operated by both airlines. The existing Scoot-Tigerair check-in counters will also reflect a single Scoot brand.
These latest developments will wrap up the integration efforts of Scoot and Tigerair that began in May 2016, when they were brought under a common holding company, Budget Aviation Holdings.
Budget Aviation Holdings CEO Lee Lik Hsin welcomed the new arrangements.
“The Scoot brand, known for its cheeky and fun vibe as well as innovative products, is well-loved by travellers around the world,” he said.
“We are looking forward to taking the brand further and offering guests a seamless travel experience throughout Scoot’s expanded network, with the completion of our integration into a single airline.”
As part of the integration, the Airbus A320 fleet currently operated by Tigerair will be repainted in Scoot’s livery, which is expected to be completed by mid-2018.
