Scoot's first E190-E2


Scoot, the low cost subsidiary of Singapore Airlines has taken delivery of its first of nine Embraer E190-E2 from aircraft leasing company Azorra.

Today, senior executives from Azorra, Scoot, and Embraer gathered at Embraer's facility in Brazil for the special handover ceremony.

We are honored to be the first Singapore carrier to take delivery of this modern and fuel-efficient aircraft and the E190-E2 jets are crucial to our overall network growth strategy.  The delivery of the first Embraer E190-E2 reflects our confidence in the demand for air travel and our commitment to connect our customers to more destinations at the same great value. We thank Azorra and Embraer for supporting us in this next chapter as we become the first major operator of the E2 in Southeast Asia.” expressed Leslie Thng, CEO of Scoot.

Embraer's E190-E2 seamlessly integrates into Scoot's operations, offering a fuel-efficient and quiet narrow-body platform. With outstanding short runway takeoff capabilities, it empowers Scoot to expand its regional connectivity on various routes, elevating their service offerings.

Scoot's first E190-E2 will arrive in Singapore in the coming days, with services set to begin in May 2024 with Explorer 3.0’s inaugural flight to Krabi, Thailand.
