The cheapest (and best) way to fly

Flying is great – you get to go somewhere new, it’s exciting, you get to flash your passport – but flying Business, well that’s far better.

So what about an airline that does Business class pretty darn good, without those exxy $6000 price tags?

We did some internet scouring and well, Scoot’s Business Class, it’s pretty bloody good. In fact, it might just be one of the best-kept secrets in the airline biz.

Alright, but how good is good? Fair question.

Well, if Scoot’s economy class changed your concept of low-cost travel, ScootBiz takes it a step further – or rather twenty steps further.

Say hello to an enhanced flying experience with all you need, for less than you’d expect.

The perks

  • Seats

Full leather seats with at least 38” (96cm) of legroom, 22” (56cm) of width, 6” (15cm) of recline and fully adjustable headrests and leg rests. Oh yeah.

  • Shop more

…and bring 2 pieces (up to 15kg) of cabin baggage. PLUS, a sweet 30kg check-in baggage allowance.

  • BoardMeFirst

Yep, Business passengers love boarding the plane first, most likely so they can smile smugly when Economy gets on afterwards. But still, it’s nice to be front of the queue with priority check-in.

  • Arrive first

Oh yeah, and you can get off the plane first too, with priority disembarkation. Get into your destination faster!

  • Eat & Drink

Complimentary drink when you board the plane, plus an additional alcoholic bevvy, as well as meals from a selection of premium products.

  • In-seat treats

Keeps your gadgets charged throughout your flight with in-seat power, and stream all the movies and TV shows to your devices with the ScooTV app (where available).

The price tag

So your full service carriers – the Singapore Airlines, Qantas, Emirates and Qatar types – might charge you an arm and a leg for a peek into Business, but not old Scoot.

Want to fly to Hong Kong return on ScootBiz in February? You’re looking at a price tag of around $1300. Fancy Singapore in November? You won’t pay more than $900 return. Guangzhou for under $1200 return?

You get the idea. Not a bad way to fly Biz if you ask us.
