Up, up and away on a holiday with SilkAir

Looking for a possible destination to spend a well-deserved vacation? Fret not because SilkAir is here to help you achieve your dream vacation. As the regional wing of Singapore Airlines, SilkAir is a full-service premium carrier offering comprehensive and reliable travel experiences complete with inflight meals and entertainment.

We are very focused and committed to offering top-quality and reliable service to all passengers at very competitive fares,” said SilkAir Philippines manager Jake Jeow.

Jeow, who is a Singaporean, has been with SilkAir since 2012 holding positions in the company’s Public Affairs and Passenger Sales departments. He was previously assigned as the Manager for SilkAir’s Palembang, Southern Sumatra before taking on the role of Country Manager for SilkAir Philippines in April 2016. The 30-year-old executive didn’t have a hard time adjusting in Cebu because he regards Cebuanos as “friendly and fluent in English.”

Having been in the position for more than a year, Jeow has seen tremendous growth potential within the Visayas market, particularly in Cebu. “Cebu is fast emerging as a very popular tourist destination. We anticipate a strong demand in this route among both business and leisure travellers.” Although they have strong demand from countries in Europe and Southwest Pacific regions like Australia and New Zealand, SilkAir remains to be optimistic in the growing local travel market.

SilkAir currently has 400 weekly flights to 53 destinations across 15 countries. Recent additions to their growing destination network include Colombo, Sri Lanka last April 2017 and Hiroshima, Japan this October 2017. Another thing to look forward to this October is the arrival of SilkAir’s newest aircraft, the Boeing 737 Max 8.

Aside from a check-in baggage allowance of 30KG for Economy Class and 40KG for Business Class, online check-in, seat selection, KrisFlyer miles, and seamless transfers to connecting flights via Singapore Airlines, SilkAir provides a complete travel experience by investing heavily on their inflight entertainment – SilkAir Studio.

The recently upgraded SilkAir Studio now offeres a greater array of international movies, television shows and music streamed directly onto the passengers’ personal devices via inflight WiFi. Get to watch popular movies like Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Harry Potter series, and Lord of the Rings series, and shows like Modern Family onboard SilkAir.
