Scoot to be the exclusive operator offering direct flights from Kota Bharu to Singapore
Kuala Lumpur – Scoot, the low-cost arm of the Singapore Airlines Group, today launches sale of flights for daily Kota Kinabalu-Singapore services, slated to commence in December 2019.
Subject to regulatory approval, Scoot also intends to commence three-times-weekly Kota Bharu-Singapore services in July 2019. Kota Bharu and Kota Kinabalu will be Scoot’s seventh and eighth destinations respectively in Malaysia, after Ipoh, Kuala Lumpur, Kuantan, Kuching, Langkawi, and Penang.
The Kota Kinabalu-Singapore route is one of 17 routes that SilkAir will be transferring progressively to Scoot from 2019 to 2020, as part of a detailed Singapore Airlines Group network review to better meet evolving customer needs.

This beautiful country has so much to offer and with these two new routes – Kota Kinabalu and Kota Bahru, travellers will be able to ‘Escape the Ordinary’ with our unique Scootitude experience on board.”
