Scoot, a subsidiary of Singapore Airlines C6L -

(SIA), welcomed the first of its Embraer E190-E2 aircraft at Singapore Changi Airport today. 

The new Explorer 3.0 is the first of nine scheduled to arrive in the city-state, from now until the end of 2025.

After being handed over to Scoot from Embraer’s production facility in São José dos Campos, Brazil, the aircraft departed the country on April 12 to arrive in Singapore today, where it recived a water cannon salute upon arrival.

“This milestone marks the start of a new chapter for Scoot and it is made possible with the hard work of our staff and support of our valued partners including Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS), Changi Airport Group (CAG), Embraer and SIA Engineering Company (SIAEC) who have worked closely with us over the past year to ensure that the E190-E2 aircraft are ready for entry into service,” says Leslie Thng, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Scoot.
