Press Releases   •   Aug 07, 2014 17:35 SGT

SilkAir will be suspending its twice-weekly flight services to Solo in Central Java, Indonesia with effect from 26 October 2014.

The decision to suspend the service is part of SilkAir’s ongoing review of its network and capacity. SilkAir will still continue its flight services to two other points in Central Java, namely Semarang and Yogyakarta.

The Airline will be assisting customers who have purchased tickets for travel to Solo after 25 October 2014. Customers will be given the option of a full refund, or the choice to utilize a SilkAir flight between Singapore and any other Indonesian point. All administrative fees and penalties will be waived for customers who have purchased tickets prior to today. This also applies to KrisFlyer redemption tickets.

Customers who require further assistance may call the SilkAir Contact Centre at

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.
