This trip report is from 2016. Arriving from Melbourne earlier, read report: Singapore Airlines SQ208 Melbourne - Singapore.

Passed over Navi Mumbai then Thane creek to line up on runway 27.
Landed and taxied towards Terminal 2. Watch video for arrival experience.
Being an early arrival before Arabian flights, The immigration counters were not busy. Got alcohol at Mumbai duty free as shops were closed in Singapore. Didn't see much price difference, paid in Australian Dollars. Collected bag from carousel and headed towards Customs.
I have not carried any customable item for almost 30 years. Can get everything in Mumbai for almost similar or cheaper price.
During 80's traveling from Doha, customs used to take 5-6 hrs, arrival used to be awful experience. Dreaded the wait after long day. These days most passengers are out within 5 mins after collecting bag as it is scanned before hitting the carousel.
After customs check, was in the waiting area. Booked pre-paid taxi from the kiosk. Exited the terminal building and into the taxi stand on lower floor. It was early morning , traffic was light. Reached home in 35 mins.
Hope you enjoyed this trip report. Thanks for reading.
Singapore Airlines flights has never disappointed till date. My trip reports show my airline preference. Flight arrived and departed on time. Even though the time was odd. I worked well for me as I was able to reach Mumbai in off-peak traffic hours. Overall a satisfactory flight.
