Aircraft: Boeing 787 Dreamliner
Jaipur International Airport was very quiet and there was no queue for ScootBiz passengers. The staff were fastidious and friendly in doing the check-in right for this inaugural flight from Jaipur to Singapore. There was no queue at Immigration nor at the first security checkpoint. A second security checkpoint had a short queue and the staff were efficient in keeping the flow of passengers moving. The waiting area in the international departure area of Jaipur International Airport was spacious and airy.
The flight departed Jaipur about 20 minutes late but arrived exactly on time at Changi at 09:40.
The ScootBiz cabin on this aircraft, named Kama Scootra in honour of the new route to India, consisted of three rows in a 2-3-2 configuration. As always on Scoot, the cabin was very clean and welcoming. Large overhead bins easily accommodate carry-on items.
Food And Beverage
ScootBiz passengers have one meal and one drink included with their ticket. Nasi lemak with coconut water makes a tasty Singaporean meal in the air. Additional food and drinks may be purchased on board.
Video entertainment is available via ScooTV on passengers’ own electronic devices.
The flight arrived on time and the jetway was connected quickly. Arrival procedures were a dream thanks to the courteous services of JetQuay, Changi Airport’s private terminal for arrivals and departures. Despite the perception that private terminals are only for heads of state, heads of corporations, and other VIPs, JetQuay provides services mostly for families who want to arrive and depart in comfort and privacy and for frequent travellers who want to guarantee no hassles on arrival or departure, just personalised service to the level required.
It’s great to see Scoot expanding its network to appealing travel destinations, and this flight to Jaipur will undoubtedly be very popular among travellers from the Asia-Pacific region seeking Scoot reliability, safety, and general standard of excellence in the low-cost carrier market.
