Scoot to acquire 20 787 aircraft from 2014

Scoot announced (24-Oct-2012) it will acquire 20 Boeing 787 aircraft for delivery commencing in 2014. The aircraft will be used to assist in the airline's expansion and to replace its 777-200 fleet. Scoot CEO Campbell Wilson said, "Scoot has quickly grown to a fleet of four aircraft and a network soon to encompass nine cities. Today’s announcement that we’ll be acquiring 20 Boeing 787’s to power our growth is exciting news and great for our guests – not least because the aircraft’s fuel efficiency will help keep ticket prices low." The 20 aircraft were originally ordered by Singapore Airlines.
