Scoot Celebrates its First Anniversary with the
“World’s Longest Virtual Flight”
27 May 2013, Singapore – Scoot, LCC of the Year, today opened registrations for the “World’s Longest Virtual Flight” – on which one lucky contestant will win S$20,000 in cash, with a further S$30,000 in travel vouchers to be given away!
The contest, in which anyone can participate by registering at www.facebook.com/flyscoot, will take place on 4 June 2013, a year to the day since Scoot operated its first ever commercial flight. Following the same route as the inaugural service, the virtual flight will “take off” from Singapore to Sydney at 9pm on 4 June 2013 and “fly” back from Sydney to Singapore at 5am on 5 June 2013.
Said Campbell Wilson, CEO of Scoot, “In the past 12 months, Scoot has gone from just one aircraft and one destination to a fleet of five aircraft operating to Sydney, Gold Coast, Bangkok, Taipei, Tokyo, Tianjin, Qingdao and Shenyang, with Seoul and Nanjing commencing in the next two weeks. It’s been a busy and exciting year for all of us at Scoot, and we’re incredibly grateful for all those who’ve supported us. Our online community, especially, has been fantastic, so we wanted to celebrate our first anniversary in a fitting way – and what more fitting way for an online community than to win cash and prizes for doing what they do best: clicking!”
Contestants “on board” must tap (mobile) or click (desktop) the “Scoot Virtual Flight” every 60 seconds initially…with the contestant who outlasts all others walking away with S$20,000 cash and free Scoot flights for one year! All participants will also have the chance to receive one of the S$30,000 in Scoot travel vouchers being given away throughout the contest.
In addition, 200 contestants will be invited to participate in person at Golden Village City Square Mall theatre, where they can enjoy a free movie marathon, make themselves comfortable with Scoot blankets and “win before they begin” with travel vouchers.
