Singapore Airlines and SilkAir to become one entity

Singapore Airlines is all set to merge Silk Air into the parent airline by 2022, and would eventually scale back all Silk Air services in the next three years. The move is being made to remain profitable in line with increasing competition with Chinese and Middle Eastern airlines. The aircraft under SilkAir would undergo the required refurbishments to match the quality and product offerings of Singapore Airlines. This three year transformation programme is designed to boost revenue and trim back costs.
