Astrata Group and Scoot Celebrate SG50

Astrata takes to the skies on Scoot’s newest 787 Dreamliner to celebrate Singapore’s 50th Birthday!

July 6, 2015, Singapore – Global location based services provider Astrata Group and Scoot, Singapore’s second largest airline, are celebrating SG50 in a BIG way, painting Scoot’s newest Boeing 787 Dreamliner, named Maju-lah, in a special commemorative party-themed livery.

Scoot’s newest 787 rolled out of Boeing’s factory with only the tail section painted, arriving under cover of darkness before heading straight into the hangar for a 7-day paint job, some of which was even done by hand!

Together with Scoot’s other Singapore based partners representing various sectors, Astrata will be prominently featured for the next 12 months on this Dreamliner, Scoot’s flagship aircraft. In addition, Astrata will be prominently featured on the bulkheads of the aircraft’s interior, and on the seat-backs of all aircraft in Scoot’s fleet. The company will also be profiled in Scoot’s award winning in-flight magazine. The plane will fly all major Scoot routes including Singapore to various cities in Australia, China and Japan.

The livery design evokes festive revelry with effervescent Scootees (Scoot cabin crew), big red party balloons and bursts of confetti, along with the official SG50 logo upfront and caricature of Singapore’s iconic Merlion. Two bubbly Scootees help spread the main message, “Happy 50th Birthday Singapore”, holding onto strings tied to balloons featuring Astrata’s company logo.

“Astrata Group is thrilled and honored to be partnering with Scoot to celebrate this historic milestone for the country and people of Singapore,” said Astrata Group’s Chairman, George M. Kappaz. “The entire Astrata family congratulates Singapore on its 50th year of independence, and is grateful for having had the opportunity to headquarter our global company in such a dynamic, innovative and wonderful country.”

Scoot CEO, Campbell Wilson added…

“Scoot is so very proud to call Singapore home. This young nation has achieved remarkable success in a short time through vision and hard work, and is a great inspiration to a young airline like Scoot. We are proud to join the SG50 celebrations and together with Astrata Group, show that pride on an aircraft that will be seen around the world for months to come.”
