I am a US citizen looking to do some traveling in 2 months. Here is the flight itinerary I'm considering for Saturday May 26th from Auckland to Singapore with a layover in Sydney:
LATAM Airlines flight 801: AKL --> SYD, takeoff 7:20am, landing 9:15am.
Scoot Airlines flight 3: SYD --> SIN, takeoff 12pm, landing 6:20pm.
All times local.
I would be booking these two flights separately. I understand the risks: neither airline is responsible for making sure I make this connection should there be any flight delays.
However, assuming that the flights are reasonably on time, is that enough time to make the connection? What would the procedure be like at Sydney airport? Would I have to clear customs of some sort? I expect to have one checked bag.
Any advice or personal experience would be appreciated. Thanks!
