Terminal 3 Check-in

After couple of days in Singapore. This trip report covers flight to Sydney. Being a early morning flight,

Prefer public transport in Singapore but took a taxi as the first MRT departs around 5.30am. It was too early to be in the street with a bag, even though Singapore is very safe country.

Arrive at the airport 3 hrs early for check-in. Check-in was quick as no many passengers had turned up. Got my boarding pass and headed towards immigration.

Immigration took about 2 mins, got passport stamped and into the departure area.
