Scoot to restart Singapore-Gold Coast flights next month

January 21, 2022

International services will restart from Gold Coast Airport next month when Singapore-based airline Scoot resumes its popular flights.

The first Singapore-Gold Coast flight will land on the Gold Coast on 14 February. Flights have gone on sale for as little as $248 one way.

Queensland Airports Limited CEO Chris Mills welcomed news of Scoot returning to the Gold Coast from next month – re-establishing flights to and from Singapore.

“We can’t wait to see Scoot again, and welcome visitors from Singapore back to the Gold Coast,” he said.

“It is fantastic to have a date for Scoot recommencing services, so soon after the Queensland border was reopened to international travellers.

“Many locals will be keen to book their trip, whether it’s to catch up with family and friends or experience everything Singapore has to offer. And the Gold Coast will be a very attractive destination for international visitors.”

Scoot CEO Campbell Wilson said he was delighted Scoot was the first airline to resume international flights to and from the Gold Coast.

“This will allow us to better support pent up demand for a myriad of business and leisure travel needs,” he said.

“Having flown more than 65 million customers with over close to a decade of flights, Australia remains a much-loved travel destination.

“Scoot served close to 130,000 travellers between Singapore and Gold Coast alone in 2019, just before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“With our current network of 70 destinations, Scoot is looking forward to providing customers with opportunities to once again reignite their wanderlust, reunite with loved ones, and reconnect with concordant business counterparts."

Work has continued on the Gold Coast Airport terminal expansion throughout the pandemic, and it will be ready for the facilitation of international passengers and services later this year – supporting the recovery in flights between Australia and overseas destinations. The three-level, 30,000sq m expansion doubles our terminal footprint and includes four aerobridges.
