The Singapore-Honolulu flight had a brief layover in Osaka, Japan, as part of its four-days-a-week service. The last airline to serve Hawaii from Singapore with a direct flight was Singapore Airlines, which canceled its Singapore-­Taipei-Honolulu-Los Angeles route in 1992.

 

 

Honolulu is chosen as the first U.S. destination because the authorities of Scoot Airlines believe that there will be a demand for the route as Hawaii is a popular destination for the sun, sand and sea lovers.

 

 

It has traditionally attracted mainly the well-heeled due to the high cost of flying there from Southeast Asia. Thus, with this service, Scoot will be the only low-cost carrier with a direct flight between Singapore and Honolulu via Osaka, and therefore they will be serving this untapped market segment.

 

 

Last month Scoot Airlines created a blend in Hawaii when it announced it would offer a promotional one-way fare of $80 from Honolulu to Osaka, and a $200 one-way fare from Honolulu to Singapore.

 

 

The airline says one-way tickets on those routes from Honolulu typically will start at $240 to Osaka and $400 to Singapore. Now Scoot Airline is using a 329-seat Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner for its Honolulu service. The planes will be hard to miss because of their yellow-and-white colour scheme.
