Singapore's Scoot has announced plans to launch flights to Berlin in the second half of 2018, which may be its longest route when it begins.
The airline announced plans to launch non-stop Singapore-Berlin flights, which would operate four times a week using Boeing 787 aircraft. The route each way will take around 13 hours.
Berlin will be the third long-haul destination for the low cost
subsidiary of Singapore Airlines. It also currently flies to Athens,
Greece, and Honolulu.
Scoot CEO Lee Lik Hsin said "Scoot's merger with Tigerair Singapore earlier this year has greatly strengthened our position, standing us in good stead to launch and sustain our long-haul operations."
He added that demand for flights to Athens has "lived up to our expectations" while bookings for Honolulu, which launches this month, have been "very promising."
Ticket sales for the Berlin flights are expected to start in the first quarter of 2018.
