UPDATED: Scoot to use Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner on Perth services from 5 FEBRUARY 2015

7 September 2014 (UPDATED 5 February 2015)

Scoot Airlines is to replace the current Boeing 777-200ER aircraft used on Singapore – Perth services from 5 February 2015 with a daily Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner service.

Scoot commenced its Singapore – Perth services in December 2013, using a fleet of six Boeing 777-200ER from parent company Singapore Airlines (SIA).

Perth will be the inaugural route for the Scoot 787s.

20 Boeing 787-9s were originally ordered by SIA, but SIA later decided to transfer the 787s to Scoot, which has now split the order into 10 Boeing 787-8s and ten of the larger Boeing 787-9s.

Scoot will take delivery of Boeing 787-9s from November 2014. The Scoot 787s were originally scheduled from 29 March 2015, then it was brought forward to 1 January 2015, delayed it to 16 January 2015, and again to 1 February 2015.

The first of the smaller 787-8 Dreamliners will be delivered in mid-2015. The current Boeing 777-200ER fleet with then be retired and Scoot will become an all-787 operator.

Schedule will be as follows:

(daily)

  • TZ008 Depart Singapore 1310 – Arrive Perth 1815
  • TZ007 Depart Perth 1910 – Arrive Singapore 0010 +1 (the following day).

    I’m flying Scoot to Singa’s next week – looking forward to it.
    Interested to see SIA is pullling the same trick as QF in giving Jetstar the new planes while QF makes do with the old.
    Joyce hasn’t got his meddling fingers stuck in the SIA/Scoot pie has he?
