Scoot will lease four new Airbus A321neos from BOC Aviation, with deliveries of the jets scheduled for the second half of 2020.

They will be powered by Pratt & Whitney PW1100G-JM engines.

“We are delighted to add Scoot as a new customer, as we support the low-cost arm of Singapore Airlines Group in its fleet expansion plans,” says Robert Martin, BOC Aviation managing director and chief executive.

“Low-cost travel continues to enjoy strong demand, and Scoot’s selection of the A321neo allows it to leverage this growth and further develop its regional network.”

Scoot announced this week that it will introduce 16 A321neos to its fleet, with the first delivery due in the last quarter of 2020.

Six of the aircraft have been converted from existing A320neo orders held by the carrier, while the other 10 will come from lessors.

“We are pleased to work with BOC Aviation, and we look forward to receiving the A321neos, which will inject growth possibilities to our network plans for 2020 and beyond,” says Lee Lik Hsin, Scoot’s chief executive.
