As the regional wing of Singapore Airlines, SilkAir operates the Singapore Airlines Group's
narrowbody fleet and extends the Group network by seeding and developing new, exciting
destinations in Asia Pacific.
The airline took to the skies in February 1989 as Tradewinds the Airline, before evolving into
SilkAir in 1992. In its early days, the airline catered to passengers holidaying in exotic
destinations in the region, including Phuket and Tioman. As the carrier developed, regional
business destinations such as Phnom Penh, Yangon and Kuala Lumpur were added.
Today, the full service airline operates more than 350 weekly flights to 45 destinations in 12
countries. Recent additions to the network include Semarang (July 2013), Makassar (August
2013) and Yogyakarta (November 2013). SilkAir's network will increase to 48 when Kalibo,
Mandalay and Hangzhou commence operations in May 2014 and June 2014 respectively. The
airline currently has a fleet of 24 aircraft, comprising 6 Airbus 319s and 16 Airbus 320s and 2
Boeing 737-800s. In August 2012, the airline announced the largest order in its history of up to
68 Boeing 737 aircraft, with firm orders comprising 23 Boeing 737-800s and 31 Boeing 737 MAX
