Low-cost carrier Scoot evinces interest in promoting tourism in Kerala

Kochi: Scoot, the low-cost, medium to long-haul airline operator, intends to work with the Kerala government for the promotion of tourist destinations in God's Own Country.

“We have successful models like Australia, which we have promoted as a tourist destination in other countries,” Bharat Mahadevan, Country Head – India, Scoot said.

Kerala Tourism is one of the aggressive tourism bodies in India and the company would like to explore opportunities in promoting destinations here, he told presspersons on the sidelines of the launch of Scoot flights in Kochi. The company is in discussions with the Rajasthan government for tourism promotion in the Pink City.

Referring to flight operations, he said the focus is on Tier-II cities as 85 per cent of the capacity utilisation is from South Indian cities. “We would look at all potential cities to commence operations in the medium term. Both Thiruvananthapuram and Kozhikode as well as the upcoming Kannur airport are on our radar,” he added.
