Perth to Singapore on ScootBiz

Now, it was on to the next part of the adventure. We would be flying on Scoot from Perth to Singapore.

Owned by Singapore Airlines, Scoot is a low-cost carrier that flies mainly long-haul flights from Singapore to Australia and China. We had found a sale on ScootBiz tickets back in December and snagged two tickets for $309 AUD each (about $228 USD). Although this was one of the cheapest business class fares I’ve come across, the service was definitely top-notch.

Boarding began on time and we made our way on board to take our seats. We picked a pair of bulkhead seats in row 1, and although there wasn’t much info I could find online, this row turned out to have the most legroom in business class.

Time to head to Singapore

After getting settled in, the flight attendants came by to distribute pre-departure cups of water.

Since the flight seemed to be only lightly loaded for this trip, we ended up departing ahead of schedule.

Once in the air, the crew began the meal service. As a low-cost carrier, meals are typically purchased separately, but are included in ScootBiz, along with one drink.

Interestingly, the only liquor they serve onboard is Johnny Walker Black label, which I was completely okay with. We each ordered a Johnnie and Coke (sacreligious, I know). The Johnny was included and the Coke was $4 SGD.

For the meal, we both pre-ordered the chicken rice when we booked. The food was pretty fantastic. Although we were stuffed afterwards, the crew was ready and available to provide anything else we wanted.

After a mostly smooth flight and a short nap, we were in Singapore.

After clearing customs and immigration, it was time to head to our hotel and get ready to explore Singapore the next day.
