SilkAir takes over two of SIA's Colombo services
Singapore, December 15, 2016

Regional carrier SilkAir will take over two of parent Singapore Airlines' (SIA) services in April, as part of the SIA Group's route optimisation drive.


SilkAir's thrice-weekly services will replace SIA's SQ466/SQ467 flights, while SIA will continue to operate its daily night flight SQ468 and return flight SQ469.



The new service to Colombo, MI428, will be scheduled on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, with a same-day return flight operating as MI427, similar to the current SIA timing.


The Colombo services will be operated with Boeing 737-800 aircraft with business and economy class cabins, extending the SilkAir network to 53 destinations across 15 countries.
