SilkAir will add more flights to cities within the region in response to an increase in demand for travel in Asia.
This increase in frequency will take effect during the northern winter schedule starting 31 October, it says.
The flights on the Singapore-Penang sector will increase to four times daily from three times daily and the Singapore-Kuala Lumpur service will increase by five flights weekly, says the carrier. SilkAir presently has 37 weekly flights on the route, says Innovata.
Other routes which will see an increase include Singapore-Medan to 15 times weekly from 14 times weekly and the Singapore-Kuching route which will increase to four per week from three. The Singapore-Kunming service will see an increase to thrice-weekly from twice-weekly and the Singapore-Siem Reap route will increase to nine weekly from eight weekly, it adds.
