Steven Greenway, head of Scoot, said: "Scoot, a low-cost long haul airline, is 100 percent owned by Singapore airline. It's an airline for the young, the young-at-heart and the value seekingfor the people who remember that travel is all about discovering, connecting, experiencing."

Scoot offers direct flights to Singapore, thus saving time, he told Arab News, adding that Scoot's services will be operated with spacious, wide-bodied 787 Dreamliners and replace Singapore Airlines' existing services via Dubai, reducing flight time by about four hours.

Jeddah is Scoot's first destination in the Middle East. The 787 Dreamliners feature improved humidity and cabin pressurization, the largest windows of any modern jet, more overhead compartment space and produce 20 percent less noise compared to conventional aircraft. Building on this solid foundation, Scoot has configured its 787 Dreamliners to transform the low-cost travel experience, accommodating up to 335 guests compared to 285 on Singapore Airlines' A330-300 aircraft.

Scoot offers two-cabin classes for guests to choose from.

Scoot's airfares are typically about 40 percent cheaper than those of full service carriers. Combined with its new and state-of-the-art 787 Dreamliners and superior product offerings, Scoot's current network of 18 destinations offers a great value getaway to Southeast Asia and Asia Pacific via Singapore.

To commemorate its foray into the Middle East, Scoot is offering a limited-time promotion till April 10.
