Scoot Pte Ltd. is a Singaporean low-cost long-haul airline owned by Singapore Airlines. It launched flights in 2012 on medium and long-haul routes from Singapore, predominantly to Australia and China. It is distinct from other Singapore Airlines-owned airlines, SilkAir which is a regional airline serving short-haul destinations, and Tigerair which is a budget airline. Initially, Scoot's fleet consisted of Boeing 777 aircraft obtained from Singapore Airlines. The airline began to transition its fleet to Boeing 787 aircraft from 2015. Its head office is at Singapore Changi Airport.
In May 2011, Singapore Airlines announced its intention to establish a low-cost subsidiary airline for medium and long-haul routes. In July 2011, Singapore Airlines announced Campbell Wilson as the founding CEO of the new airline. On 1 November 2011, the airline was named as "Scoot". In 2012, Scoot announced that its IATA code would change from OQ to TZ. On 4 June 2012, Scoot began its first flight to Sydney Airport in Australia. On 12 June 2012, Scoot started flying to Gold Coast, its second Australian destination. On 24 October 2012, Scoot announced that its parent company Singapore Airlines will be transferring the 20 Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners they had on order to Scoot to replace their current fleet of Boeing 777-200s and help with its ongoing expansion and future growth. Scoot began to consider having a mixed fleet of Boeing 787s instead of it all being an all Boeing 787-9 fleet. On October 26, 2012, Scoot announced that passengers can now purchase "Interline" tickets with Singapore's Tigerair.
