SIA long-haul budget carrier to start next April -- ST PHOTO ILLUSTRATION By Karamjit Kaur, Aviation Correspondent Singapore Airlines' new low-cost, long-haul carrier is slated to take off in April next year with one Boeing 777-200 and expand to four planes in the first three months. The longer-term plan is for Scoot Airlines, as the new entity could be called, to operate 14 of the twin-aisle planes by the middle of 2016, The Straits Times has learnt. Regional carrier SilkAir, another SIA subsidiary, has a fleet of 18 aircraft. The new airline, a critical part of SIA's strategy to deal with intensifying competition from rival carriers, is expected to fit each of its B-777 with about 400 seats.
