NokScoot Reviews 2017
Thailand-based budget airline NokScoot adopted an approach of communicating to all customers a unique travel experience and way of doing business they termed “Scootitude.” Most apparently viewed from their official website’s fun and quirky bright yellow design and chicken or bird mascot, the Scootitude personality and attitude sets them apart from the other budget airlines, showing the friendship and friendliness possible in travel. It invites everyone to fly, get the flight of their dreams, and not take themselves too seriously.
