Tiruchy, being the airport with the most number of opera-lions for Tigerair, at 14 flights in a week, the airline is considering introduction of more services from here, said Bharath Mahadevan, country head, of Scoot Airlines. Nine months after Scoot and Tigerair a-nounced their intention to pursue a single brand name and operating licence, under the enhanced Scoot brand, the airline bid fare-well to the last Tigerair Singapore as its last flight departed Singapore for Tiruchy, on July 24. Addressing the media after the launch here, Bharath Mahadevan said, "Scoot has been well received since the launch of services at Tiruchy Airport. The new integration of Scoot has also made us introduce promotional airfares, with fares as low as 25,599 to Singapore. Coupled with the addition of previous Tigerair network and five new services have started for foreign destinations, Scoot's total destination count has reached 65 destinations spread across 18 countries'
With the Tiruchy International Airport having immense potential for growth and Air Asia also increasing its services to four a day, Scoot is evaluating options to increase services, said the officials. Scoot has officially commenced its operations in India last year and the new destinations, after the integration, will be Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Kochi, Tiruchy, and Lucknow The existing Tigerair Airbus A320 aircraft that was flying to the city will fly under the new brand name Scoot carrying a total capacity of 180 passengers. The two services in all carry 360 passengers a day with an occupancy ratio of 80 - 85 percentage. The new Scoot Airways will be operating under theTR flight designator code, which marks the com-letion of the integration. Cargo exports to begin soon CARGO exporters, who were badly hit, are a relieved lot as the cargo operations are to begin soon. Bharath Mahadevan said that the cargo operations to Singapore would begin in another two to three weeks. In Tiruchy, two services of Tigerair carry at least four tonnes of cargo on a daily basis, mostly perishable goods, like vegetables and flowers.
