Singapore-based budget airline Scoot has received their first Dreamliner. The low-cost carrier’s fleet is rapidly expanding and will receive another nineteen Dreamliners until 2019.
Previously, the fleet of Scoot only consisted of Boeing 777s which will be replaced by the Boeing 787. The airline operates flights from Singapore to destinations in China and Australia. Scoot will operate a fleet of Boeing 787-8 and 787-9 aircraft.
The 787 features new and improved seats, streaming movies and inflight Internet connectivity. Other features of the 787 are larger windows, more comfortable cabin pressure and humidity, larger stowage bins, a smoother ride, lower noise and reduced emissions.
The Boeing 787-9 will take off on its first commercial flight to Perth next Thursday.
