Scoot has launched sales of passenger services to Jeju, South Korea. Commencing 15 June 2022, the three-times weekly non-stop flight service will be Scoot’s second destination to South Korea. This is a continuation of Scoot’s commitment to providing our customers with good value, low on frills and modern travel experiences, combined with convenient connections to key cities as well as unique destinations.
Dubbed the ‘Hawaii of East Asia,’ Jeju is a year-long holiday destination, with each season promising a variety of immersive experiences appealing to multigenerational travellers, adventurers, and holidaymakers alike. The largest island off the Korean peninsula, Jeju is one of the most popular vacation spots in South Korea with its unique local atmosphere, beautiful natural environment, and designated UNESCO world heritage site status, promising timeless romance in the lap of nature. Travellers can also look forward to more fuss-free travel between Singapore and Jeju, with the planned lifting of the temporary suspension of visa-free entry into Jeju for international tourists as of 1 June 2022.
Promotional fares for Singapore – Jeju start from SGD300 (taxes inclusive, one way). The approximately six-hour flight service will be operated by Scoot’s Airbus A321neo aircraft, the newest aircraft type introduced to Scoot’s fleet in June 2021. The single-aisle aircraft featuring 236 seats has a longer range and sports premium black leather seats, amply sized overhead compartment bins, ambient lighting technologies that reduce jetlag, improved air quality, and reduced noise emissions.
Scoot 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 revitalisation of international tourism, and further grow our network for essential and leisure travel.
