Thailand and Singapore had shaken hands to create a unique airline in 2014, more known nowadays as “NokScoot.” I pretty much know you have the hints as to where was the name originated from. It was actually from Nok Air of Thailand and Scoot of Singapore. However, please be aware that NokScoot is a Thailand-based low-cost airline, since Nok Air owns 51% of the airline. NokScoot had started commercial flights in May 2015.
The new merged airline is based at Don Mueang International Airport with a fleet size of 3 Boeing 777-200ER which cater medium and long-haul flights to China, Taiwan, and Japan. Their company slogan is “Fly Awesome” and their CEO is Piya Yodmani.
Flying with NokScoot
NokScoot has two cabin classes inflight, which are Economy and ScootBiz.
Economy – This cabin class’ seats are in 3-4-3 seat configuration and also provide enough legroom space with a pitch of 31-36 inches and recline to 6 inches. Passengers are offered with an inflight menu wherein they can purchase food. As noticed, Economy Class has three kinds of seats, which are: Economy seats (designated as blue), Super seats, and S-t-r-e-t-c-h seats (both yellow). These seats actually differ with their seat pitch, and selecting a preferred seat selection comes with a fee.
ScootBiz – The black-colored seats in 2-4-2 seat configuration also provide enough legroom space and a pitch of 38 inches and recline to 20 cm. In-seat power is also available. This cabin class was actually originated from Scoot’s ScootBiz; this service provides complimentary meals and over 20 kg of baggage allowance.
Official Website and Mobile App
As is quite obvious, NokScoot had mixed the designs, ideas, and overall creativeness of the two airlines, from the sketched human models, yellow-themed page, and diverse services. The official website lets travellers search, book, and manage their booking online. It also provides essential information regarding the airlines’ service, policies, and contact team. The main page of the site also promotes NokScoot’s latest Promo Fare Deals.
NokScoot has a mobile version of these services available only in the App Store.
NokScoot Reviews of Passengers
Since the airline is not a international major airline, there are no NokScoot reviews found on Airlinequality, Trustpilot, and Airlinerating. However, we noticed a forum was actually starting on TripAdvisor. Let’s have a closer look.
On TripAdvisor, 14 NokScoot reviews had gave an almost perfect score for the Thailand-based airline. Majority of the reviewers are even considering their NokScoot experience as their best flight ever. Others had mentioned appreciation by, “Perfect flight,” and “Beyond my expectation.” To see more of these NokScoot reviews, click here.

Since this is a joint venture of two popular low-cost airlines and even if the airline was recently established, it is safe to say that NokScoot was actually more interesting to fly with more than Nok Air itself. The two creative airlines (Nok Air and Scoot) had already built up their own reputation and standing since they were established. But let alone, NokScoot had made its own pretty face for just a year and a half.
This is a good example of a successful partnership of two countries. We are looking forward to hear more about NokScoot in the future.
