    Over the summer we heard about Singapore Airlines’ planto maybe start-up some kind of long-haul, low-cost carrier and finally the wheels have been put into motion.

    It sounds like the new off-shoot airline is ready to move forward beginning next year in 2012 and the airline will utilize four Boeing 777s to start. If everything goes as planned they’ll definitely look to add more jets, as plans call for as many as 16 different planes doing their thing by the end of 2016.

    The most exciting news is that it sounds like there’s a chance that the new airline could make it all the way to the United States

    If I am not mistaken, first flight would be Sydney as Scoot's destination.
