Singapore Airlines and SilkAir customers will enjoy the added choice, convenience and flexibility of up to 15 flights a day between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur from 1 December 2008.
“We have extended and strengthened our cooperation with Malaysia Airlines by including our sister Airline, SilkAir in our ongoing codeshare arrangement with Malaysia Airlines on the Singapore-Kuala Lumpur route. With the spread of services and a frequency of up to 15 flights a day offered jointly by Singapore Airlines, SilkAir and Malaysia Airlines, customers will be spoilt for choice!” commented Mr Huang Cheng Eng, Executive Vice President Marketing & The Regions for Singapore Airlines.
“SilkAir is pleased to be able to offer, together with Singapore Airlines, a wider choice of flights for customers travelling between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. This is the first time we will have flown to Kuala Lumpur, and we are excited about the prospects for this new route,” says Mr Chin Yau Seng, Chief Executive SilkAir.
SilkAir will commence twice daily flights between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur from 26 October 2008, while Singapore Airlines will operate five daily flights. From 1 December, Singapore Airlines and SilkAir will operate four flights each. Together with Malaysia Airlines, the three carriers will offer up to 15 flights a day.
Customers will generally have access to all flights operated by the three airlines, as interchangeable tickets are available for travel on most fare types apart from some issued on restricted fares. Customers will have to note restrictions and conditions of the fare type they intend to purchase. Tickets that are not interchangeable include certain discounted tickets and tickets bearing restrictions for use only on a specific carrier.
