The New Low Fare Airline is in Town - Flyscoot Singapore

Ready, Get Set, Scoot Outta Here from 4th June 2012! Singapore newest airline, is taking off ahead of schedule with its inaugural flight to Sydney set for 4th June, followed by Gold Coast a week later on 12th June! Airfares starting from as low as SGD $158! Scoot is 100% owned by Singapore Airlines (SIA) but independently managed and run. As compared to the normal flights, Scoot will offer value airfares about 40% lesser. Most importantly, safety, reliability and punctuality are the core values which Scoot focus on.

Scoot Management team had a casual meet up with local bloggers at Singapore Flyer last Friday, and I was very glad to be invited to the event. Not only did I catch up with some fellow bloggers, Alvin & Darren Ang,  but also met new blogger friends, Claire, Darren Ng, Christine, Walter and Jerome.

And of course, getting to know the happening Scoot management team. "Scoot is not your usual airline name... and the company it identifies is not your usual airline...Scoot is an airline with a different attitude. People with a different attitude. SCOOTITUDE. " They have certainly proved that during the meeting, especially when I requested for a different attitude infront of the camera, without any hesitation, they posed, and the result? See above!

Seen here with Scoot CEO, Mr. Campbell Wilson. Before joining Scoot in May 2011, Campbell was Singapore Airlines' GM Japan. He started his career with SIA in New Zealand and Australia and had more than 25 years of experience. A very friendly and approachable guy, and a very different CEO. Read more about his profile here: Scoot Family - Campbell Wilson
(Btw, I think my face seriously look damn oily here. Lol, can fry an egg yea?)

How often do you find a CEO like Campbell who's so energetic & fun loving? I was joking with him that he looked too serious in our previous shot, and he immediately gave me another funky pose. Seen here Head of Cabin Services, Ms Ng Ju Li. As Head of Cabin Services, she take care of cabin crew recruitment, training and performance while overseeing their rostering and welfare. She also oversee inflight services and cabin operations, making sure that every Scoot cabin crew complies strictly with the high cabin safety and security standards. Check out her profile here: Scoot Family - Ng Ju Li

 Heard from the management team about the selection criteria for the cabin crew. Seriously not easy. I shall not disclose too much information here, if you are interested to be part of the Scoot family, check out Scoot Facebook or Scoot Official Website for more details. They are having their 3rd and final recruitment soon, so stay tune! One tip, looks is not everything. You need to have that SCOOTITUDE! I have spoken to air stewardess like Priscilla (left) and Marina (right), they seriously are two very good examples. Bubbly, fun-loving, and friendly! The pictures say it all, isn't it?

While we were on the flyer, Campbell did some presentation on some facts and history about Scoot.
It all started out from a simple USB way back in 2011. Understand from the presentation that Scoot's first year destinations include Australia, China, and others. Destinations will be progressively announced soon!
But one thing I noticed about the presentation, did you realize the team improvised the towel as the screen? With simple pegs and towel, it work wonders! Creative to the max.

And some pictures I took while on the flyer... looks like some final destination teaser yea? Haha. Just kidding.

The evening sunset...

Adding some effect, the Singapore night scene looks good! Singapore Tourism Board, wanna hire me? =)

Apart from the serious stuff, we had some ice breaking games. Thankfully, the team could understand what I was drawing. Thanks to our team leader, Captain Meng Kum. Seen here with Ling Ling, from Scoot's marketing team. Credits: Jerome Lim

Also had some refreshments, thanks to the excellent hospitality!

We had our Singapore food trail with the bloggers and Scoot's management team, btw, there was even more food than that!

Darren Ng, Darren Ang and myself

If you find Darren Ng familiar, yes...he's none other than the 'Ah Guan' in Channel 5 once popular series, Growing Up. Hahah! I actually went to the search for the theme song, seriously, nostalgic!

The signs have changed that today's design,
there's no denying these harder times,
but the ones that are dear,
will be here through our fears,
making sorrow fade away,
showing the road the brighter days

Faces and places I can still recall,
loved ones and lost ones I miss them all,
and I hope you'll be here,
through our growing up years,
facing the trails of lives endeavours,
realizing dreams we both can share,
for all our days.

Haha, side track alittle. Anyway, what are you waiting for! Check out Flyscoot amazing fares to Australia now! Credits: Steven's back.
