Thailand’s NokScoot takes delivery of first B777


Bangkok Don Mueang-based NokScoot – the joint venture carrier of Singapore Airlines’ Scoot long-haul low cost carrier (LCC) and Thai LCC Nok Air – has taken delivery of its first aircraft, a B777-200ER, sourced from equity partner Scoot. The aircraft arrived at Don Mueang airport 23 November following a ferry flight from Singapore Changi where it had undergone a repaint into the start-up’s distinctive livery – a hybrid between that of Scoot and Nok Air. The longhaul LCC secured its Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC) from the Thai Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) on 30 October and plans to launch commercial operations, likely to Tokyo Narita, before year-end.
