Scoot reminds me of spirit airlines, it’s always nice to see an airline getting a new fleet, but it’s sad to old Airline’s will be gone and possibly forgotten

I thought they were already the same company or subsidiary or something like that. I was wrong I guess.

Using “Singapore” just reiterates to readers this is the Tigerair based in Singapore, not one of the other two or three “Tigerair” branded airlines such as Tigerair Australia.

All Scoot and Tigerair Singapore flights will be using TR prefix instead of the existing TZ on Scoot flights

It’s always sad to see “this airline was” on a Wikipedia page. Since Scoot is not part of Value Alliance, does the alliance have one less carrier?

It’s highly likely that Scoot is going to be part of Value Alliance. As Tigerair Singapore have transferred their ICAO and IATA code to Scoot and not to mention some interline agreements and codeshares between their members. And I guess Scoot’s entry to Value Alliance is already planned as Value Alliance was formed around the time SIA (Under Budget Aviation Holdings which also owns Scoot) acquired the rest of the stakes at Tigerair Singapore.

It will be great to see such a major airline joining the Value Alliance. I wish more budget airlines outside of Asia Pacific also joined.
