SilkAir to Transfer Busan Flights to Singapore Airlines

SilkAir will transfer its Busan services to Singapore Airlines on 28 October 2019.

The transfer will enable the company to boost seat capacity on the South Korean route by 76%.

Subject to regulatory approvals, SIA will operate flights to Busan four times per week, maintaining SilkAirís current flight frequency.

The route will be served with SIAís 285-seat Airbus A330-300 aircraft, which feature 30 Business Class and 255 Economy Class seats.

The A330s can accommodate up to 123 more passengers per flight than SilkAirís 162-seat Boeing 737-800s1 which currently serve the Singapore-Busan route.

ďDemand for SilkAirís Busan flights since the launch of the route on 1 May 2019 has been very encouraging, and it has proven to be another popular gateway into South Korea, complementing SIAís services to Seoul. We look forward to helping further grow travel to and from South Korea with the increase in capacity that SIAís larger aircraft can provide on the route,Ē said Senior Vice President Marketing Planning, Mr Tan Kai Ping.

In addition to Busan, SIA and low-cost subsidiary Scoot operate a total of 31 weekly flights to Seoul in South Korea.

Customers with existing bookings on SilkAirís Busan flights on and after 28 October 2019 will be re-accommodated on SIAís flights.
