Scoot is back in the capital region. On August 10, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner with the bright yellow lettering landed again for the first time at Berlin Brandenburg Willy Brandt Airport. Three times a week, on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, the low-cost subsidiary of Singapore Airlines is now flying from BER via Athens to Singapore. Scoot has already been gradually returning to Europe since May, thus rebuilding its long-haul network. Non-stop flights between Central Europe and Southeast Asia from BER to Singapore are planned as the vaccination campaign progresses.
Airport CEO Engelbert Lütke Daldrup is happy about the airline’s return to the region: “We are delighted that Singapore Airlines subsidiary Scoot is once again connecting BER with the Asian continent. We warmly welcome the airline back. Both regions will benefit from the flight connection between Central Europe and the Asia-Pacific region through economic growth opportunities and cultural exchange.”

Boeing 787 Dreamliner
Scoot uses its Boeing 787 Dreamliner widebody fleet on its flights between Europe and Asia. Onboard these state-of-the-art aircraft, guests can expect a spacious cabin with ample storage space and generous windows, as well as services such as on-demand in-flight WLAN and power outlets at the seats.
Extensive health and safety measures at all touchpoints
To ensure that guests fly safely onboard Scoot, the airline has introduced extensive health and safety measures at all touchpoints from flight preparation to check-in to boarding and, of course, throughout the flight. To minimize the risk of infection, the airline relies on increased cleaning and social distancing, offers digitized service procedures (e.g., via Scoot’s inflight portal ScootHub), reduces contacts at the airport through optimized processes, and regularly checks the health of its crews. In February 2021, Scoot became the first low-cost carrier in the world to operate a flight with a fully vaccinated cabin crew.
