Singapore Airlines’s budget arm Scoot expects leisure travel will recover quickly once more people in Asia are vaccinated and governments ease border restrictions.

Scoot has brought many of its aircraft back into operation recently to get its fleet ready for the expected spike in demand, Campbell Wilson, CEO of the low-cost airline, said Monday, June 28. The trend is evident in the US and Europe, where air travel ahead of the summer peak has sprung back, he said.

“We currently have more aircraft than would normally be required by the schedule that we are operating, rotating through flights so we’re keeping them warm,” Wilson said at a business update briefing. “That ensures that the lead time in order to put them back into more regular service is very, very minimal.”
