Airservices air traffic controllers and aviation fire fighters have welcomed Singapore Airlines’ low-cost offshoot, Scoot Airlines, on its inaugural flight to Sydney this morning.
Call-signed ‘Scooter 2’ (flight TZ002), the eye-catching yellow and white Boeing 777 touched down on Sydney’s Runway 34L at 10.20am, having flown in from Singapore.
The occasion was marked with a special welcome radio transmission by the tower controller.
“Scooter 2, Airservices welcomes the inaugural Scoot Airlines flight to Sydney,” the controller said.
On landing, the aircraft was also treated to a traditional ‘water arch salute’ by Airservices aviation fire fighters involving two ultra-large Mk8 fire vehicles throwing water over a distance of more than 80 metres as the aircraft passed through the arch.
