ABACUS International has signed a distribution agreement with Scoot, the Singapore-based LCC’s first-ever.
The multi-year deal will provide Abacus’ 20,000 travel consultant partners in Asia-Pacific with access to the airlines’ fares and inventory from July 2012.
Operating a fleet of four Boeing 777-200 aircraft, Scoot will begin flying to Sydney and Gold Coast in June, with additional route launches to Bangkok in July and Tianjin in August.
Meanwhile, Abacus shifted its operations in Mumbai and Bangalore to new premises on May 29 and May 31, respectively.
“This is indicative of the fast expansion that Abacus is seeing in India and we are therefore increasing our investment to better support travel companies based there”, said Brett Henry, Abacus India VP.
