KUALA LUMPUR, June 15 — Scoot Pte Ltd, Singapore’s low-cost long-haul airline, will complete its integration with Tigerair and will be operating all flights under the Scoot brand by July 25, subject to final regulatory approval.
In a statement today, Scoot said, henceforth, the airlines would begin operating under a single air operator certificate.
“Consequently, the flight designator code for Scoot flights will be changed from the current TZ to TR, the code currently used for Tigerair flights. All flight schedules remain unchanged,” it said.
The latest developments would wrap up the integration efforts of Scoot and Tigerair since May 2016, when they were brought under a common holding company, Budget Aviation Holdings, it said.
Scoot said all Scoot and Tigerair guests with existing flight bookings scheduled on July 25 or later would be contacted via e-mail from June 15 to July 23 July.
“Existing Scoot guests will also be provided with updated itineraries to reflect the change in flight designator code from TZ to TR.
“Guests may also start purchasing and managing existing Scoot and Tigerair flights through the Scoot website, www.flyscoot.com or via Scoot call center at +60 32 630 8976,” it said. — Bernama
