Low-cost Scoot has been steadily expanding in the past few years, having recently announced Athens, Greece flights. They are now expanding even further with their application for service to Honolulu, Hawaii via Osaka, Japan from Singapore. Please note: this route is not confirmed, rather they have just applied for service from the United States Department of Transportation. They aim to start the flights in the second half of 2017. You may be thinking, why does this route sound familiar? Well, it just so happens that Air Asia is also launching this route (originating in Kuala Lumpur), starting 28 June.
