SilkAir is to be absorbed into parent company Singapore Airlines.
Singapore Airlines last month began the integration of its subsidiary airline, SilkAir, into the parent company’s operations.
Following a full livery change, SilkAir services will be progressively transferred to Singapore Airlines’ routes. A full integration of SilkAir into Singapore Airlines is slated for completion in the 2021/22 financial year.
According to Singapore Airlines’ management, the integration will allow for more flexible aircraft deployment. News of the consolidation plans was first confirmed in 2018.
SilkAir has flown as the regional wing of Singapore Airlines since 1992. It linked Singapore with 40 destinations in the Asia Pacific region.
Significant investment is being made to the SilkAir fleet, with new upholstery as well as a new livery. The fleet will be served by Singapore Airlines cabin crew.
