Scoot To Fly To Perth

18th Oct 2013

Come December 19 this year, the low-cost carrier Scoot will launch its third service to Australia following its Sydney and Gold Coast destinations.

Perth is the capital and largest city in the state of Western Australia. Scoot will initially start with five direct flights per week between the city state and the fourth most populous city in Australia. It will leave Perth for Singapore in the early evening at 7:30 pm. The return flight will take off from Changi International Airport at 12:50 pm, the following day, for a six-hour flight back to Perth.

Scoot will deploy its Boeing B777 wide-body jet airliner for the Singapore-Perth route. The aircraft can seat up to 368 passengers in the economy class and another 32 at the business class.

The business class cabin of the refurbished plane is equipped with recliner seats, featuring an 8-inch recline and a comfy headrest to boot. Its leather-upholstered seats span 22 inches across and a pitch of 38 inches. It has enough legroom at 19 inches from the edge of your seat to the seat next to you.

The economy cabin of the aircraft which is located immediately behind the ScootBiz is child-free area where children below 12 years old are not permitted to occupy those seats. This particular area also features four rows of seats with extra legroom that commands additional charge of S$18 (A$16) if booked on top of the regular economy fare.

Most economy seats in Scoot planes have enough legroom featuring 32-inch pitch leaving 11 inches space between the front edge of your seat to the seat in front of you.

Super or Stretch seats would cost extra in addition to regular economy fare if booked. Non-essentials such as inflight meals and checked baggage, likewise, would also mean additional cost. The only difference with these seats are the spacious legroom between them at 17 inches apart and 8-inch recline.

Perth will mark the budget carrier's 13th destination with Hong Kong's service debut barely one month earlier on November 15, making it its 12th.

Scoot already flies to Sydney once daily and five times daily to Gold Coast.
