Singapore’s low-cost carrier Scoot Airlines announced on Tuesday the deal of the decade. The deal envisages cheap flights from Australian airports to Greece’s renowned Athens International Airport. The scheduled flights will take place during the February-May 2019 season.
The Scoot deal of the decade provides a $299 itinerary connecting Australia’s Perth Airport with Athens until the 30th of May 2019. Booking must be completed before the 28th of February to secure this unbelievable offer. Similar competitive prices are also offered in the Gold Coast, Melbourne and Sydney Airports to Athens flights, with fares starting from $309. The flight itinerary deals do not include baggage, seating and meals charges, which come at an additional cost.
The deal of the decade came as a result of reduced customer demand for these flights, originally valued at $369 from Perth Airport and 419$ for the rest flight routes. Scoot Airlines executives further reduced the price-tag to reinvigorate passenger traffic during the high spring season – a traditionally low traffic period of the year for Mediterranean destinations. Interestingly, it is the first time that Scoot tickets fall below the $300 fare threshold.
Scoot Airlines is a low-cost subsidiary of the Singapore Airlines Group. It was set up in June 2012 to accommodate rising passenger traffic levels from Singapore to China and India. Scoot Airlines possesses a fleet of wide-body Boeing 777 jets, with passenger carriage capacity extending over 310 seats.
