SilkAir operates scheduled passenger services from Singapore to 31 cities in Southeast Asia, South Asia and China. As the regional wing of Singapore Airlines, it serves 31 out of 50 short-haul destinations in the Singapore Airlines Group network.
The SilkAir fleet consists of 6 Airbus A319-100 and 14 Airbus A320-200.
The airline had its roots as a regional air-charter company in the form of Tradewinds Charters, formed in 1976, and using planes predominantly leased from parent company Singapore Airlines serving leisure destinations. Scheduled services were introduced as Tradewinds Airlines on 21 February 1989. As the carrier matured, regional business destinations such as Jakarta, Phnom Penh and Yangon were added to its network, thereby broadening the airline"s appeal beyond the holiday-maker to include the business traveller.
A major marketing overhaul was started in 1991, culminating on 1 April 1992, by giving the airline its present name and logo as a new corporate identity. It was the first Asian carrier to offer handheld portable video-on-demand in-flight entertainment in the form of the DigEplayer 5500, available on flights to selected countries.
