The budget airline eyes its third long haul destination.

Singapore-based airline Scoot has announced it plans to add Berlin to its network, with first flights penciled to take off in the second half of 2018.

Although still subject to regulatory approval, if all things go smoothly, flights will operate between Singapore and Berlin four times weekly on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

This will be the budget airline's third long haul flight route, with the first being the hugely popular Athens from Singapore and more recently, Honolulu from Osaka.

Of the decision to launch another long haul flight into Europe Mr Lee Lik Hsin, Scoot's chief executive officer, said, "Scoot's merger with Tigerair Singapore earlier this year has greatly strengthened our position, standing us in good stead to launch and sustain our long haul operations. Athens has lived up to our expectations while bookings for Honolulu have been very promising."

He continues: "We are excited to bring our unique Scootitude to Berlin and can't wait to launch those great value fares that Scoot is known for!"

While no details have been released yet over the expected cost of flights, we're anticipating them to be similar to Athens which are typically priced at $369 each way from Australia.

Seats are expected to go on sale early 2018. When they do, you can bet your bottom dollar that they will be bottom dollar fares.
