The Embraer E190-E2 completed its first revenue flight in Southeast Asia on Tuesday. The aircraft from Scoot, a low-cost airline linked to Singapore Airlines, took off from Changi Airport bound for Krabi, Thailand.

Scoot signed a leasing agreement for nine E190-E2s with Azorra last year and two jets are already in Singapore, the 9V-THA (named ‘Explorer 3.0 and which took the maiden flight) and the 9V-THB ( Small Yella Fella), which was delivered at the end of April.

Embraer stated that Scoot’s new jet will allow the expansion of frequencies to Krabi and Hat Yai, in Thailand, from seven to ten weekly flights.

“We would like to congratulate Scoot on this momentous occasion,” said Martyn Holmes, Chief Commercial Officer of Embraer Commercial Aviation. “We are proud to see the modern and fuel-efficient E2 aircraft grace the skies over Singapore and Southeast Asia and would like to thank all the involved stakeholders who worked tirelessly to make this possible.”
