Get your Greek on and prepare to get outta here for a value-packed dream vacation as Scoot gears up to launch its first destination in Europe – Athens, the picture perfect capital city of Greece!

Scheduled to commence on 20th June 2017, the new service between Singapore and Athens marks Scoot’s first long-haul flight between Asia Pacific and Europe, as well as the longest flight operated by a low-cost carrier (LCC) with flight distance exceeding 10,000km.

Budget-conscious travellers in Malaysia will soon be able to fly to Greece at pocket-friendly airfares from four cities – Ipoh, Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi and Penang – via Tigerair to Singapore and then onward on Scoot, to immerse in the rich history and culture Athens has to offer.

Take a trip back to ancient Greece with visits to the famed Acropolis of Athens and the legendary Temple of Apollo in Delphi, before hopping over to the many picturesque Greek islands including Mykonos and Santorini for a dose of idyllic romance. Travellers can also connect onward from Greece to other alluring cities in Europe for an extended pan-Europe vacation.
