Scoot has launched a new service enabling passengers to connect at Singapore’s Changi airport, without having to re-check-in or collect their baggage.
The ‘Scoot-Thru with Changi Connects’ service forms part of the recent deal signed between Scoot and Tiger Airways – Singapore Airlines’ two low-cost subsidiaries. It is available for passengers transiting between Scoot flights, or on any of the joint itineraries offered with Tiger.
“With the range of destinations offered at flyscoot.com expanding rapidly, Scoot-Thru with Changi Connects is a timely addition to the great value frills our guests can select. We’re pleased to be working together with Changi Airport Group to provide this service so guests may Scoot across all our destinations with even greater convenience and peace of mind,” said Campbell Wilson, Scoot’s CEO.
Scoot is the first airline to use Changi Connects – a new service provided by Changi Airport Group (CAG).
“Changi Airport is pleased to launch Changi Connects in partnership with Scoot. This new service provides transferring passengers with a hassle-free experience, allowing them more time to enjoy what Changi has to offer in terms of shopping, dining and entertainment. We welcome other low-cost carriers to leverage this service to provide an enhanced transfer experience for their connecting passengers,” said Lim Ching Kiat, CAG’s Senior Vice President for Market Development.
Chargeable at SG$16 (US$13) per person per flight connection in Singapore, passengers are able to remain in the transit area of Changi airport, collecting their onward boarding pass from the transit desk.
