SINGAPORE - Scoot, Singapore Airlines' long-haul budget carrier, will shift its operations from Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport to Don Mueang International Airport from Sept 1.

The move to the older airport, located nearer to the city centre, will benefit its customers, said Scoot on Tuesday. People who fly with Scoot will also have easy access to more than 21 domestic destinations from Don Mueang, as part of a partnership with the Thai low-cost carrier Nok Air.

Flights for the entire journey can also be booked through a single transaction via Scoot's website.

Scoot chief executive officer Campbell Wilson said: "Moving to Don Mueang is both a great boost for Scoot's customers as well as a natural step as our partnership with Nok Air strengthens."
