Singapore budget airline to end service to Honolulu

November 24, 2018

HONOLULU (AP) — A budget airline based in Singapore will discontinue flights to Honolulu in June, citing low demand for the service.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports Singapore Airlines announced this week that its low-cost arm Scoot will end the Hawaii route.

The change comes as Scoot takes over several SilkAir routes over the next two years. The regional airline SilkAir is merging into Singapore Airlines.

Scoot launched service to Honolulu in early December 2017, flying the route four times a week with a 329-seat Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner.

Scoot said last year that one-way fares from Honolulu to Singapore would start at about $400. Its one-way fares to Osaka, Japan would start at $240.

The flights to Honolulu were the airline’s first service to the U.S.
