This Onboard Courier Mission was the very first time I had to pick up the shipment in another location than my home base airport of CPH.
I got the confirmed Mission at 12:21PM CET so I scrambled quickly to get my stuff together and took a taxi cab to CPH.
First leg was CPH-HEL (AY664) an early evening flight and when I touched down in HEL I immediately called the pick up contact person who was waiting just outside the Customs area with the shipment that had to be hand delivered in Singapore Changi International Airport on AY81.
This was in fact my very first OBC Mission to Asia and my very first trip to Singapore. After the shipment was delivered I had two days to experience Singapore.
I especially liked the Harbor and had a nice North Indian Vindaloo along with a local Tiger beer right there on the dock with a beautiful view.
