A short but worthwhile haul

Just imagine: In just 35 minutes, you could be getting off a plane in Pekanbaru, Indonesia sometime in the next few months; most NTU students won’t have even reached their destination in that time. Low-cost carrier Scoot just launched ticket sales for its new Singapore-Pekanbaru flight, operating four times a week in the A320 aircraft. Best of all, all-in fares for one-way Economy Fly start from just $35.

Pekanbaru, the fifth Scoot destination in Indonesia (after Bali, Jakarta, Palembang and Surabaya), is a little less-travelled than most Indonesian hot spots. But you’ll quickly be taken by the scenic views—there’s Harau Valley, a stunning nature and wildlife reserve often called the Yosemite of Indonesia; while the iridescent Rainbow Hills feature out-of-this-world, multi-colored sand dunes.

You have now from now till May 25, 2018 to book, and the promotion is valid for travel by Oct 27 this year. So start planning; flights commence Jun 4.
