Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Tuesday, 28 April 2009

From 1 June 2009, SilkAir, the regional wing of Singapore Airlines, will begin twice-daily services to Penang.

Together with Singapore Airlines’ daily service to the Malaysian state, both airlines will operate a total of 21 weekly services. Singapore Airlines will operate the daily morning service whilst SilkAir will operate the daily afternoon and evening services.

“The liberalisation of the markets between Singapore and Malaysia has enabled our sister airline, SilkAir, to join us in offering a total of three flights a day to Penang. With these flights, customers who prefer the comfort, service reliability and connectivity offered by a full-service airline will continue to have a choice of convenient flight timings at competitive fares,” said Mr Huang Cheng Eng, Executive Vice President Marketing and The Regions.

Mr Chin Yau Seng, SilkAir’s Chief Executive, added, “Penang is a vibrant state that is rich in culture and tradition, and has a reputation for great food. It also serves as a base for many multi-national companies. SilkAir looks forward to serving both leisure and business travellers alike on the Singapore-Penang route from 1 June.”

Customers holding Singapore Airlines tickets can also fly on SilkAir and vice versa. Interchangeable tickets are generally available for travel on most fare types, except those issued on restricted fares.

Customers are advised to take note of the restrictions and conditions of the fare type they intend to purchase. Non-interchangeable tickets include promotional tickets restricted for use on one carrier and certain discounted tickets.

Located off the northwest coast of Peninsular Malaysia, Penang is one of the most populous states in Malaysia. A well-loved food paradise famous for its iconic dishes like Penang laksa, Penang char kway teow and nasi kandar, the state is a charming treasure trove of heritage buildings like century-old shophouses, colonial villas and Chinese temples. More interestingly, its capital George Town was inscribed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in July last year.
