On October 29, Singaporean LCC (low-cost carrier) Scoot Pte Ltd (TZ) will begin flying on a Narita-Singapore route via Taipei, initiating the airline's first flight service to Japan.

The LCC, a subsidiary of Singapore Airlines (SQ), is a mid- to long-haul carrier. Scoot had released a plan to commence service to Narita in late-October, but the exact date was not determined until this month, when the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) granted its approval.

Using the Boeing 777-200, flights will have 32 "Scoot Biz" seats and 370 economy class seats. Scoot will offer daily service according to the below schedule.
