Apr 2015

On 5th Mar 2015 after Attugal pongala, took singapore Airlines(silkair) from Terminal 2 International airport Trivandrum at 22:45HRS to Changi Airport (Terminal 3) before hand took a printout of the changi Airport layout just to see how things roll there(as suggested by PN). There are skytrains as well as shuttle bus available to traverse from one terminal to another terminal.
Have packed few computer components in cabin as well as checkin baggage. Had to open it up during X-ray scanning as well as during security check in TVM Airport.

At the time of boarding the connecting flight to Syd, had to fill in the Immigiration form/Incomming Passenger card + Travel history which was mainly for ebola related condition.

Flight details
TVM to SYD:- 13HRS 45 Min
SQ5491(operated by MI491) Duration 4HRS 30MIN
connection time:- 1HR 20MIn
SQ241 Duration:- 7HR 55Min
Checked in online
In the SYD airport( Kingsford-Smith Airport) because I was carrying a shoe(soil related entry had been marked in the immigration form) had to go to the quarantine section.. other than a scanning the baggage nothing else happened.
Checked Baggage receipt at the time of checking in + Boarding pass ----> security check
At the time of Boarding the flight listen to the announcement which is very unlike boarding trains and buses in flights.
Initially its for old, disabled and parents with kids then based on range of seat no., passengers are allowed to board so as to dissaude crowding in and to promote comfortable boarding.
