With the ability to now travel quarantine-free between the United Kingdom and Thailand, Scoot is excited to introduce the only low-cost option between Bangkok and London offering our unique combination of great value and great experience with a touch of Scootitude. For nearly 10 years, Scoot has empowered travelers to customise their flight experience as they prefer, whether it be with extra legroom, checked baggage, free carry-on cabin luggage of 10kg, inflight Wi-Fi, tasty meals, Scoot-in-Silence or just enjoy an unbeatable airfare. We’re excited to now introduce the World’s Best Long-Haul Low-Cost Airline to London.

From March 2022, Scoot will operate 3-weekly seasonal scheduled services to London Gatwick. The airline says that it will review the route and will increase the frequency of flights based on demand and regulatory approval.
