Scoot, the low-cost arm of the Singapore Airlines (SIA1) (SINGY) , began regular service to the United States with the inaugural flight from Singapore to Honolulu taking off on December 19, 2017.

The airline is now operating Singapore and Honolulu via Osaka and nonstop Singapore-Osaka flights four times a week, on top of existing three-times-weekly services via Bangkok and Kaohsiung. According to the carrier, the Singapore-Osaka-Honolulu route will be operated on a twin-aisled Boeing 787 Dreamliner, with a total capacity of 329 seats.

“We are excited about entering the U.S. market with a destination as special as Hawai‘i,” said Lee Lik Hsin, Scoot CEO. “We look forward to connecting our two communities which are both known for their rich multi-cultural heritage. We are confident that travelers from Singapore and the region are eager to visit Hawai‘i as a world-famous vacation destination.”
