Nok Air has formed a JV – NokScoot – with Singapore’s low-cost carrier Scoot. Nok Air that will put up a capital outlay of 3 billion baht will own 51 per cent of the JV, with the remaining stake held by Scoot Private Limited. It will begin operations with two or three Boeing 777-200 aircraft that will be sourced from Scoot’s fleet to fly to destinations in Japan, South Korea, and northern China. Scoot has six B777-200s in operation, with orders for 20 B787 Dreamliners.
