SilkAir, the regional wing of Singapore Airlines, has signed a letter of intent to purchase up to 68 new aircraft from Boeing. The order is the largest in SilkAir's history and remains subject to the negotiation of a final purchase agreement.
It will comprise firm orders for 54 aircraft and purchase rights for another 14. Firm orders will comprise 23 Boeing 737-800s and 31 Boeing 737 MAX 8s. SilkAir will have the flexibility to switch to other variants within the B737 product range.
Since August 2008, SilkAir has been rolling out a new aircraft cabin interior design. Previously, the cabin was decked out in cool blue interiors and following the change, our cabin design has now a very warm and welcoming feel to it, with seats dressed in warm brown and cream colours. Cabin seats are ergonomically designed with flexible headrests and in Business Class, seats are fitted in leather. The newer aircraft cabins also offer more spacious overhead compartments, with fixtures and fittings in a fresher design.
Customers onboard our flights get to enjoy sumptuous inflight meals with a focus on Asian offerings, particularly Singapore favourites such as fried carrot cake and Hokkien noodles. In Business class, meals are served freshly plated in courses, in restaurant style. A wide selection of drinks are also available onboard.
Onboard our flights, you can get hold of our award winning Silkwinds inflight magazine, which offers a diverse range of stories about exotic Asia, from destination guides, to quirky activities and experiences that can be found all around. Its unique stories and clever use of design elements has earned Silkwinds recognition in the publishing field. In 2010 and 2009, Silkwinds earned awards at the Annual Creativity Awards held in the US.
SilkAir offers a range of amenities such as handsoap and mouthwash for our customers’ to freshen up with. Other onboard amenities include eyeshades, blankets, pillows and baby bassinets.
