SilkAir is to increase the number of flights it operates to Indonesia, adding two more cities in Indonesia, thereby increasing its network in the country to 11 destinations.

 Subject to regulatory approvals, SilkAir will offer thrice-weekly flights between Singapore and Semarang, the provincial capital of Central Java, from 29 July 2013, and thrice-weekly flights between Singapore and Makassar, the provincial capital of South Sulawesi, from 1 August 2013.

The new services will be operated with Airbus A319 and A320 aircraft, featuring both Business and Economy Class cabins.

 SilkAir’s Chief Executive, Mr. Leslie Thng, said, “SilkAir is excited to add Makassar and Semarang to our extensive network in this part of the region. We are impressed with the growth of air travel to and from Indonesia and we are confident that the two new services will be well received.”

As the largest city of Central Java, Semarang is a commercial centre with an economy primarily anchored on trading, manufacturing and construction. A major port during the Dutch colonial era, Semarang also boasts a unique combination of European influences and rich Asian culture and retains a mix of old-world charm and colourful culture.

Makassar, formerly known as Ujung Pandang, is the largest city in East Indonesia and also the primary port and airline hub of the eastern archipelago. It is home to many of Indonesia’s ethnic groups including the Bugis and offers a multitude of historical gems, natural attractions as well as a variety of sightseeing opportunities within and beyond the city.

SilkAir first began operations to Indonesia in August 1992 and has steadily strengthened its network over the years. SilkAir currently serves nine Indonesian destinations, namely Balikpapan, Bandung, Lombok, Manado, Medan, Palembang, Pekanbaru, Solo and Surabaya.
