Scoot Airlines to introduce 16 new A321neo aircraft

Asian carrier Scoot has introduced 16 new A321neo aircraft into its fleet.

The first aircraft will be delivered in the last quarter of 2020 and will be used on medium-haul routes.

The new fleet will enable Scoot to meet its double-digit growth plan by the end of financial year 2020/2021, the airline said.

Of the 16 aircraft, six are an upsize from Scoot’s current A320neo order from Airbus, while 10 will be leased.

The A321neos, powered by Pratt & Whitney engines, will be delivered from Airbus’ final assembly line.

Scoot CEO Lee Lik Hsin said: “The A321neos will inject growth possibilities to our network plans for 2020 and beyond, and it is indeed apt that we have named the first aircraft ‘Wings of Change’. Customers will be greeted by our brand-new cabin interiors, with seat products they are already familiar with. We hope the process of introducing this new fleet into our Scoot family will be as exciting for our customers as it is for us.”
