Said Campbell Wilson, CEO of Scoot, “Today’s ceremony is another significant milestone in the lead-up to receiving our first 787 Dreamliner in December.”
 
The Dreamliner represents a step-change for Scoot, allowing us to take our onboard customer experience to a new level and with twenty aircraft on order, to greatly expand our network. The 787’s significant advances in efficiency will enable Scoot to continue offering safe and reliable service, with increased comfort and even greater value airfares – so people can get outta here more often.
 
Boeing Japan President, George Maffeo, who attended the ceremony said, “Scoot has been a trailblazer since beginning operation in mid-2012 with its unique culture and low-cost service on Boeing 777s. We in Japan are very excited that Scoot will introduce the 787 Dreamliner to its fleet and be one of the few LCCs in the world flying this innovative airplane.
 
We are honored to host Scoot at our factory today and showcase Japan’s cutting edge technology and age-old traditions,” said Munenori Ishikawa, President of Aerospace Company of KHI. “We are delighted to be part of the 787 success story and are convinced that it will in turn carry Scoot to great success.
