Winner of Singapore’s top marketing accolade for the second year running, Marketer of the Year 2015 Scoot is raising the game with an enhanced ScootBiz, inflight Wi-Fi, revamped ScooTV that streams to personal devices, Web Check-in and Scoot-to-Gate to beat airport queues, airport transfer bookings, as well as PlusPerks to earn KrisFlyer miles. 

Scoot, which has been voted 2015 Best Low Cost Airline in Asia Pacific[1], is rolling out the latest initiatives to further elevate the guest experience following its transition to a brand new 787 Dreamliner fleet – setting it apart from other low-cost carriers.

“Scoot strives to deliver exceptional value, superb choices and service with Scootitude to our guests, and we are pleased to unveil our latest ScootBiz and ScooTV enhancements, airport transfer options, along with our new Web Check-in and Scoot-to-Gate service that aim to delight at every point of the guest journey,” said Steven Greenway, Scoot Head of Commercial.

“Our latest initiatives transform the low-cost travel experience for guests, enabling them to enjoy a wider range of customisation options as they continue to benefit from great value airfares,” he added.

“More for less” with enhanced ScootBiz

ScootBiz offers a premium option for guests seeking greater comfort and convenience, especially on longer flights. ScootBiz guests enjoy a roomy full-leather cradle seat with a 38″ (96cm) seat pitch, 22″ (56cm) width, 8″ (20cm) recline and fully adjustable headrests and legrests.

ScootBiz offers tremendous value for guests who want to enjoy some luxury in their travel experience.

Inflight connectivity and entertainment

Guests who wish to access emails, social networking or simply surf the Internet during their flight will appreciate Scoot’s inflight connectivity. Available in three timed sessions – one hour (USD11.95), three hours (USD16.95) or 24 hours (USD21.95), Scoot’s inflight Wi-Fi[2] can be purchased before and on-board the flight, with no data usage limit within each session.
