Singapore Airlines' budget subsidiary Scoot has attained full International Air Transport Association (IATA) membership.

The Singapore-based airline joins 300 IATA members across 120 countries that meet IATA's Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) standards for safety in airline operations.

In a statement, Scoot's Chief Executive Officer Leslie Thng said: “We are honoured to become an IATA member. This international recognition affirms our dedication to upholding safety for our passengers. Through the decade, we have continued to enhance our operational resilience and improve our customers' experience.”

“Looking ahead, we hope to continue to pave the way in defining and elevating value-travel in our industry,” Thng added.

“Having Scoot, a low-cost carrier, as a member will further enhance the diversity of views we have in the Association. We look forward to working with the Scoot team towards the sustainable growth of the industry as it recovers from the impact of COVID-19,” said Philip Goh, Regional VP for Asia Pacific, IATA.
