Scoot unveils in-flight services
Singapore Airlines’ new low-cost carrier Scoot has revealed its in-flight entertainment and F&B options.
As previously revealed by Travel Daily last week, Scoot will offer passengers the use of iPads preloaded with a selection of films, television, music and games. This will be augmented later in the year by an onboard wireless system that will allow guests to access streamed content from an onboard library via their own personal devices.
iPads will be available for rent in economy class, but will be included in the fare in Scoot’s front cabin, ScootBiz.
“Scoot is all about empowerment. Our unashamed focus on being low-cost empowers more people to travel, and travel farther, than ever before. Our service philosophy is underpinned by the belief that guests shouldn’t subsidise the choices of others, and empowers them to select only the frills they really value,” said Campbell Wilson, Scoot’s CEO.
In terms of F&B, Scoot will offer a range of hot dishes including briyani rice, soya sauce chicken rice and beef lasagne. All meals will be suitable for Muslim passengers and vegetarian options will also be available. Guests will be allowed to add a drink and dessert to form a ‘ComboMeal’ which will cost less than buying the three items separately. Sandwiches, cup noodles and other snacks will also available for sale on board, as will Ben & Jerry’s ice cream
Scoot will launch flights between Sydney and Singapore from 4 June 2012, with services to the Gold Coast following a week later on 12 June. Flights to Bangkok and Tianjin will also be launched in the coming months.
All flights will be operated using a Boeing 777-200 aircraft with 402 seats – 370 in economy class and 32 in ScootBiz.
