Video: Scoot 9V-OTB TZ1 Sydney to Singapore


This report is from a holiday trip in Dec 2012 to India. I had booked this trip on a short notice. As other airlines were expensive, chose to fly with Scoot with onward flight to Chennai on Tiger Airways.

Arrival and Check-in

I arrived at airport early and headed to check-in counter. I travel light and not issues with bag.

My India visa was checked and got the immigration form and boarding pass.

Immigrtion and Security

Immigration was quick as having e-passport , simple scan and was out in the security area. I was prepared with all sorted, was out of security in few minutes.

Duty Free AREa

After completing security, passed through the duty free area.

Scoot was chosen for price as I had booked ticket on short notice. Service on board was satisfactory. I had flown with Scoot earlier and made sure to select the more comfortable yellow seat. Overall I had a good trip with Scoot.
