Scoot has launched a new inflight Wi-Fi plan to
encourage more passengers to remain connected while onboard.
Optimised for messaging and chat services as well as
light surfing, the “Social-Lite” plan costs US$5 for 20MB of data at
64kbps surfing speed.
The new plan complements Scoot’s existing inflight
Wi-Fi plans on its Boeing 787 fleet, priced at US$11.95 for one
hour, US$16.95 for three hours and US$21.95 for 24 hours, without
any cap on data consumed.
“Our fun-loving guests have told us several
times that they love our unlimited data Wi-Fi plans! Sometimes
though, all they want is to send off a quick text to friends and
family to let them know when they will arrive, or to not miss out
on conversations with their friends and chat groups,” said Steven
Greenway, Scoot’s Head of Commercial. “We then realised there was a gap to fill, and since Scoot exists to give
our guests the choice to pay for only what matters to them,
‘Social-Lite’ was born. It is affordable and perfect for most of
our guests who love to stay constantly connected but only require
quick messaging or chatting on the go.”
“Social-Lite” comes hot on the
heels of a recent improvement to the Scoot-Thru facilitated
transfer service for passengers with connecting flights. Now,
travellers receive boarding passes for both flights when they check in
for their first flight. Their baggage will be tagged and
transferred to the connecting flight and final destination.
The Scoot Café inflight menu
was also recently updated with a new spin on one of Singapore’s
most beloved dishes – Scoot Exclusive Dry Laksa featuring thick
rice noodles stir-fried in fragrant Laksa broth, topped with
succulent shrimps and egg. Meal options suitable for passengers on
Scoot’s new Jeddah and Indian routes have also been added.
