Scoot unveils new aircraft "Maju lah"
Scoot will be giving away freebies including return tickets and S$47 vouchers.
In a release, Scoot, Singapore’s newest low cost airline, unveiled the name of its third aircraft, which will enter service in the coming week: “Maju lah”.
“Being a proudly Singaporean airline, and with this new aircraft entering service near Singapore’s birthday on 9 August, we simply couldn’t pass up this opportunity to celebrate with our home nation,” said Campbell Wilson, Scoot’s CEO. “Of course, neither could we pass up the opportunity to add both Scootitude and some local Singaporean flavour. Hence ‘Maju lah’.”
For the uninitiated, Majulah, Malay for “onward”, is part of the title of Singapore’s national anthem, Majulah Singapura (Onward Singapore), while “lah”, on its own, is the signature suffix of Singlish, Singapore’s very own unofficial language.
“We know that people will take this in the celebratory spirit intended – the celebration of Singapore’s birthday and her unique culture,” added Campbell. “So, Scoot lah.”
To add to the celebratory mood, Scoot is giving away freebies in the next 47 hours.
