Flight Review: Scoot – Singapore to Ho Chi Minh City

Flight Review: Scoot – Singapore to Ho Chi Minh City

Flight: Scoot TR 306
From: Singapore (SIN) To: Ho Chi Minh City (SGN)

I flew with Scoot from Singapore to Ho Chi Minh City. I compared flight options with Skyscanner, and there are several options for flights between the two cities. In the end I picked this flight for a combination of price, time of day, and the fact that I haven’t flown Scoot on this route. Other options include Vietjet, Jetstar, Vietnam Airlines, and Singapore Airlines. I counted 18 flights on one random day I checked, so you are spoilt for choice here.

I have flown Scoot before from Melbourne to Singapore on a 787, but this was my first regional flight. Last year Tiger and Scoot went through a brand merger, with Tiger being consumed into the Scoot brand completely. This is a different scenario to the joint venture between Scoot and Thailand’s Nok Air, which has rebranded Nok Air as NokScoot.

Booking online with Scoot was easy, and my total fare was 93 SGD ($70.85 USD).

I didn’t check in online, but checking in at Changi Airport is a breeze. As it is the base for Scoot there are check in kiosks open all the time.

One of the many things I like about Changi is that the security check is done at each individual gate, rather than en masse after immigration.

Todays flight is on an Airbus A320, departing 13.10 and arriving at 14.10 (a 2-hour flight).

There is no inflight meal service, so drinks and food can be ordered in advance or onboard.

Scoot cafe

Hot meals start from 12 SGD ($9.15 USD).

A coffee is 4 SGD ($3 USD).

Overall this was a good flight option from Singapore to Saigon.
