Scoot added that flight routes will be reviewed periodically and adjusted based on customer demand.

The Pikachu Jet will also be rostered on other routes operated by the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner as part of the regular airline operations.

This means even if you may not have chosen to take the Pikachu Jet, you might eventually board one if you are lucky enough.

A new range of exclusive collectibles can be purchased during flight bookings on Scoot’s website and mobile app, and on board Scoot flights.
