SilkAir Customers Able to Get Latest Travel Information with Google Now

Press Releases   •   Jun 23, 2014 12:00 SGT

SilkAir, the regional wing of Singapore Airlines, has integrated flight status notifications with Google Now to offer customers the latest information on their flights.

Google Now is a service introduced as part of the Google Search App to provide you with the right information, at the right time. SilkAir customers who make their bookings through http://www.silkair.com/ and specify their Gmail address in their booking will be able to view travel information such as their departure terminal, gate, time as well as flight status. This service will also give customers useful information about their respective travel destinations such as the weather and traffic. This information will be updated in Google Now several hours before a customer’s flight departure.

Google Now is available on the Google Search App that can be downloaded on iOS and Android devices from the Apple App store and the Google Play Store respectively, and is built-in to Android 4.1+ devices. Users will then have to log into the Google Search App with their Gmail account to activate the Google Now features.

SilkAir’s parent company, Singapore Airlines had announced last December that bookings made on www.singaporeair.com have been integrated with Google Now.

“We are pleased to have taken this step to integrate the bookings made on our website with Google Now. We are confident that this will further enhance the travel experience of our passengers as they are able to receive important travel information conveniently.” said SilkAir Vice President Commercial, Mr Ryan Pua.

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.
