Silk Air flies to Cairns

4 Jun 2015 by Clement Huang

Silk Air, the regional carrier of Singapore Airlines has launched a new service to Cairns.

The service follows the launch of the airline’s Singapore-Darwin route in 2012.

The Singapore–Cairns route will operate three-times weekly on Monday, Thursday and Saturday.

Monday and Thursday services are circular routes, with flights first stopping at Darwin before connecting onwards to Cairns. The return service will fly from Cairns to Singapore non-stop.

The Saturday service will fly Singapore to Cairns direct, while the return leg will stopover in Darwin.

The new service will be operated by Silk Air’s latest B737-800 aircraft, of which the airline took delivery last year (see here). It features a two-class configuration with 12 seats in business and 150 in economy.

As a full-service carrier, customers will be provided with in-flight meals, and wireless in-flight entertainment via Silk Air studio, which transmits movies and TV features directly to the customer’s personal device. The baggage allowance is 30kg and 40kg for economy and business class, respectively.
