About SilkAir

The Regional Wing of Singapore Airlines

SilkAir’s pedigree as one of Asia-Pacific’s leading regional carriers began in the mid 1970s. Tradewinds Pte Ltd was formed in 1975 as the tours and travel arm of Singapore Airlines. Tasked with developing and wholesaling holiday tours, Tradewinds exclusively marketed SIA holiday packages in the early 1980s.

On 21 February 1989, Tradewinds the Airline was unveiled, catering to passengers holidaying in exotic destinations in the region, including Pattaya, Phuket, Hatyai, Kuantan and Tioman. As the carrier developed, regional business destinations such as Jakarta, Phnom Penh and Yangon were added.

On 01 April 1992, Tradewinds was renamed SilkAir. This change marked the carrier’s evolution from a holiday resort airline to a full-fledged regional carrier. The company’s Tours & Travel Division was restructured into a wholly-owned subsidiary of SilkAir, retaining the name Tradewinds Tours & Travels Pte Ltd.

SilkAir’s positioning as a premium, short-to-medium haul regional carrier gives it a unique appeal amongst leisure and business travellers in Asia. Whilst offering carefully selected meals, a full bar service and elements of inflight entertainment, SilkAir places great emphasis on providing attentive, friendly and relaxing service. The carrier’s regional flair is expressed through both its cabin crew and its cuisine – ensuring that your experience of the destination you’re heading to begins when you step onto our plane.
