Scoot and TigerAir to use a single brand and operating licence from next year
THE budget airlines under the Singapore Airlines Group stable, Scoot and Tigerair, will use a single brand and operating licence next year.
The integration will occur between mid to end-2017 due to a "full spectrum of commercial, operational and regulatory considerations", said both airlines in a news release.
These include flight scheduling and connections, and touchpoint integration for guests such as a common website, contact centre and check-in counters.
Singapore Airlines chief executive officer Goh Choon Phong said that Scoot and Tigerair have made good progress in their integration since the group established Budget Aviation Holdings as a common holding company in May.
"The integration has already led to commercial and operational synergies between Scoot and Tigerair that are providing growth opportunities for both airlines, an example being Scoot's plan to launch its first European service - to Athens - next year," he said. "Following a review, we have determined that the logical next step is to pursue a common operating licence and common brand identity to enable a more seamless travel experience for customers."
