- Queensland Airport CEO and Scoot CEO welcomed news
Singapore-based airline Scoot will resume its popular flights to Gold Coast from February 14, with tickets already on sale for as low as S$170 one way since Queensland opened its border to international visitors from January 22 for fully vaccinated customers without having to serve quarantine.
TR6 departs from Singapore at 8.25 pm local time and arrives at Gold Coast at 6.05 am the next day every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday while TR7 departs from Gold Coast at 7.25 am local time and arrives in Singapore at 1.15 pm on the same day every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.
“We can’t wait to see Scoot again, and welcome visitors from Singapore back to Gold Coast. It is fantastic to have a date for Scoot recommencing services, so soon after the Queensland border was reopened to international travellers”Chris Mills, Queensland Airport Limited CEO
Gold Coast Airport is currently expanding its terminal through a three-level, 30,000 sqm expansion, including four new aerobridges to double its terminal footprint, all of which will be ready for use later this year to support the recovery in flights between Australia and overseas destinations.
Scoot CEO Campbell Wilson was delighted Scoot would be the first airline to resume international flights to and from the Gold Coast, having flown close to 130,000 travellers between Singapore and Gold Coast alone in 2019 before the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Having flown more than 65 million customers with over close to a decade of flights, Australia remains a much-loved travel destination”Campbell Wilson, Scoot CEO
Scoot currently flies to Melbourne, Perth, and Sydney while its parent Singapore Airlines flies to Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, and Sydney.
