If you CAN beat ‘em, join ‘em!!

If you CAN beat ‘em, join ‘em!!

Mar 14

Who hasn’t heard of the age old adage: ‘If you CAN’T beat them, join them‘? Well, Scoot would like to change that. When it comes to our launch promo fares, of course. If you haven’t heard, we want you to BEAT our launch promo fares down as much as possible, because we are offering one-way fares to Sydney, the Gold Coast, and Singapore, at a price that YOU decide....

The man with the Scootitude – our dear CEO, Campbell Wilson!

The man with the Scootitude – our dear CEO, Campbell Wilson!

Feb 28

You might be wondering who the dashing (and youthful) gentlemen in the thumbnail pic is. Well he is none other than the man that you may already have heard about – our dear CEO, Campbell Wilson. You may seen him in the press, you may have heard him on the radio, but have you seen him on a trampoline? The man who walks the walk, and talks the talk – Campbell Wilson… 1. What happens...

Get Outta Here…to the Gold Coast

Get Outta Here…to the Gold Coast

Feb 13

It seems like just yesterday that I first posted about Scoot being born. But that was way back in November 2011. And look what’s happened since then – we’ve made so many wonderful friends, we’ve ridden (and are still riding!) around the buses in Singapore, and we’ve even said our own first words, ‘Get Outta Here!‘, with the help of our Slogan Challenge...

Scoot celebrates Australia Day with Yeast Extract!

A few weeks ago, you read about Scoot’s Head of Commercial (a.k.a. Head Cash Cow), Steven Greenway. Like all great profile interviews, we naturally asked him about the contents of his refrigerator at the time of the article posting. However, what we did NOT ask was the contents of his kitchen cupboard. And after last Thursday, we are pretty sure that one of his answers, if not the ONLY one,...

All work and no play makes Scoot a dull place – Happy New Year!

All work and no play makes Scoot a dull place – Happy New Year!

Jan 24

Gong Xi Fa Cai everybody! So up till now, you’ve been reading all our posts profiling the respective team leads within Scoot. But what happens on a day-to-day basis in our humble office between these people and the rest of their teams? Do we come to the office and chat about life? Play Angry Birds on our iPhones and countdown to our mid-day lunch break, after which we count down to the end...

She’ll ‘headhunt’ you down! Scoot’s Head of HR, Theresa Tan!

She’ll ‘headhunt’ you down! Scoot’s Head of HR, Theresa Tan!

Jan 19

You’ve read about the leaders of the different teams so far. But a big part of how they can do what they do is due to the hard work of Scoot’s kickass HR team, led by none other than our ‘mother away from home’: our Head of HR – Theresa Tan. Some of you may have had the pleasure of meeting her during our first mass cabin crew recruitment exercise, but for those of...

The protector of people – Scoot’s Head of Safety, Ian Hawkes!

The protector of people – Scoot’s Head of Safety, Ian Hawkes!

Dec 30

Ian Hawkes can lay claim to the longest job title in Scoot (and possibly the world) but his primary focus is something that can easily be taken for granted. Safety. And much, much more. Here at Scoot, Ian Hawkes is the Head of Safety, Security, Quality, and Environment. And when December comes around, he also serves as the in-house Santa Claus. Not only because of the uncanny resemblance, but...

The self-proclaimed Head Cash Cow – Steven Greenway!

Dec 18

As hard as the entire  Scoot family can work at getting our airline up and running, and at keeping it running once it is up, nothing will be possible if we cannot sustain ourselves financially. And the man responsible for that is none other than Steven Greenway, Scoot’s Head of Commercial, who’s got so much experience behind him that we think ‘low-cost’ is now part of...
