Scoot off on some new Spiritual routes - to birthplace of Buddhism and Qing Dynasty

Scoot Launches First and Only Low-Cost Link Between Singapore and Chinese Cities Qingdao and Shenyang

Scoot, Singapore's newest low cost carrier, today launched its eighth and ninth routes to Qingdao and Shenyang in China.

Said Campbell Wilson, CEO of Scoot, "With Chinese New Year just around the corner, it's a great time for Scoot to be launching the first non-stop flights between Singapore and Qingdao, and the first same-plane, wide-body service to Shenyang.  Scoot's super value airfares, empowerment to choose the frills you want and onboard Scootitude make Qingdao or Shenyang unbeatable locations to usher in the Year of the Water Snake."

The thrice-weekly service operates on a Singapore–Qingdao–Shenyang–Qingdao–Singapore routing at the following timings:


Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 2 Depart 1.30am
Qingdao International Airport Arrive 7.30am / Depart 8.30am
Shenyang Taoxian International Airport Arrive 10.15am


Shenyang Taoxian International Airport Depart 11.20am
Qingdao International Airport Arrive 12.50pm / Depart 1.50pm
Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 2 Arrive 8.00pm

Reiterating the reasons for choosing these cities, Campbell stated, "Qingdao and Shenyang are very exiting additions to Scoot's fast-growing network. Qingdao, a coastal city of nearly 9m world famous for its great beer, is regularly judged China's most liveable city. Its mix of historic German and modern architecture, seafood and proximity to Lao Shan, the mountain considered one of the birthplaces of Buddhism, offers something for all. Shenyang, at 13m the largest city in Northeast China, is the spiritual home of the Qing Dynasty and, in addition to being an important shopping and business destination, is a strategic gateway to North East China."

Scoot's network now comprises nine cities including Singapore, Sydney, Gold Coast, Bangkok, Taipei, Tianjin, Tokyo, Qingdao and Shenyang, with 24 more destinations offered in conjunction with partner airlines Fares are available for booking at or through the call centre.
