Are you looking forward to flying in a Singapore Airlines (SIA) operated Boeing 737-800 aircraft? You will soon be able to, as more SilkAir routes are progressively transferred to SIA Group parent Singapore Airlines.

SIA B737-800 routes
The move allows SIA to operate the aircraft to points within its current network, starting with Brunei in March 2021. Commencement of both services is subject to regulatory approvals. The change is part of SilkAir’s integration with the parent airline, offering customers greater consistency in products and service across the SIA Group’s premium network.
The full integration of SilkAir into Singapore Airlines is scheduled for completion in the 2021/22 financial year.
The SIA B737-800 will operate with 12 Business Class and 150 Economy Class seats. Customers will enjoy SIA’s award-winning suite of in-flight offerings on regional routes. These include the renowned Singapore Airlines cabin crew service, along with enhanced food and beverage options. KrisWorld in-flight entertainment via a web-based platform will also be part of the offering.
…. The introduction of the SIA 737-800 will bring about a more comfortable and seamless travel experience for customers on our regional routes. Integrating SilkAir with SIA also allows us to be nimble and flexible in aircraft deployment, and supports our fleet and network growth strategy. Goh Choon Phong, Chief Executive Officer, Singapore Airlines.
