Singapore's Scoot has announced it has completed the first set of trials before it will switch operations at Changi Airport to Terminal 1 (T1) later this month.
In line with its plans for growth, the budget subsidary of Singapore Airlines will shift its operations from Changi's Terminal 2 to Terminal 1 on October 22, a terminal which saw upgrades worth around SGD $323 million (USD $234 million) completed late last year.
The last flight by Scoot to operate out of Terminal 2 will be TR156 to Shenyang, China on October 22. The first flight from T1 will be TR100 bound for Guangzhou, China.
The last arriving flight for Scoot at T2 will be TR431 from Kuching on October 21, while the first arriving flight at T1 will be TR895 from Kaoshiung the following day.
“For almost two years, we have worked hard towards a seamless move of our operations to T1. Passengers for both trial flights were checked in and boarded on time; in addition, baggage and other flight handling essentials, such as catering and amenities, were uplifted with no issues. Our customers on these trial flights have also shared that the automated check-in kiosks and bag-drop machines at the new central zone are user-friendly,” said Ng Chee Keong, Scoot’s Chief Operations Officer.
