Scoot welcomes moves towards ASEAN open skies

Scoot GM Australia Darren Wright, speaking at the CAPA Australia Pacific Aviation Summit, stated (07-Aug-2013) that as an Asian carrier it welcomes any opening of the skies in the region. ASEAN hopes to achieve a single aviation market for the region by 2015, allowing unlimited operations between the capital cities of each country. However, ASEAN's agreements do not free up domestic operations, which remain reserved for local airlines.
