Discover Their Story - SilkAir
Inducted in 2010
Consecutive Award Won: Best Regional Airline
As the regional wing of Singapore Airlines, SilkAir extends the SIA Group’s network by seeding and developing new, exciting destinations in the 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, it 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.
As a subsidiary of Singapore Airlines, SilkAir has inherited the service excellence and high standards from its parent company. SilkAir promises a full-service experience that is based on offering a customer-oriented quality product and services from the ground to the air.
The Next Chapter
In the coming years, SilkAir will undergo a significant product upgrade to more closely align its products and services to those of its parent company Singapore Airlines (SIA), as part of a multi-year programme which will ultimately see it merged into SIA. The merger will eventually encompass a full re-branding of SilkAir as SIA, with repainting of aircraft and adoption of SIA’s service delivery.
