Silk Air launches flights to Hangzhou

11 Apr 2014 by Clement Huang

Silk Air, the regional wing of Singapore Airlines, will begin operating services to the eastern Chinese city of Hangzhou from June 27. This will be the carrier’s eighth destination in China, as it currently flies to Changsha, Chengdu, Chongqing, Kunming, Shenzhen, Wuhan and Xiamen.

Since Hangzhou’s economy opened up in the early 1990s, the capital of Zhejiang province has become home of industries such as e-commerce, IT services, pharmaceuticals, electronics and food processing. It is also one of China’s most important leisure destinations.

For an in-depth look into the city, check out our Inside China article in the January 2013 issue of Business Traveller Asia-Pacific (see here).

The new service will be operated using the airline’s A319 and A320 aircraft, featuring both business and economy class cabins. Seating information has not been finalised, but Silk Air offers two different configurations to both of its A319 and A320 jets. The Airbus narrow-body aircraft will gradually be replaced by Boeing’s 737-800 (see here).
