The check-in counter at Berlin’s Tegel Airport was well staffed, which made the short queue move very quickly. One of the friendly employees at the counter handled the check-in process with efficiency and good humour, an apt representative of the airline’s Scootitude.
The plane departed on time and landed 11 minutes behind schedule due to avoidance of turbulent air en route.
The cabin was clean and hardware well maintained. Scoot’s unique ScootinSilence zone allows those passengers who prefer a quiet cabin to travel in a child-free section between ScootBiz Class and the main part of the Economy section. Seats in the ScootinSilence section occupy four rows in a 3-3-3 configuration.
Food And Beverage:
Hot meals were served soon after takeoff to those passengers who had pre-booked them as well as those who purchased them on board from the extensive menu. A sandwich was served a few hours before landing. As on all Scoot flights, food and beverages were available for purchase throughout the flight.
To enjoy Scoot’s inflight entertainment, passengers must download the Scoot app to their own electronic devices and use them in flight with the purchase of connection to wifi, which allows them to access a wide variety of audio and visual options.
This flight arrived at 03:56 in the morning, a time when Immigration and baggage services at busy Changi Airport are able to be delivered especially quickly. A transfer to the elegant Villa Samadhi thanks to the friendly LimoCars Singapore meant that departure from the airport and arrival at the hotel were smooth and stress-free.
Scoot takes great pride in both its base at Singapore’s Changi Airport and its operations, which now extend to countries on four continents. Luckily, both its home airport and its services in the air and on the ground excel in their ability to provide travellers with positive experiences. Scoot recent addition of the Berlin service to its route network is especially welcome given the surprising lack of intercontinental flight services from the Asia-Pacific region to the capital of Germany.
