SilkAir is delighted to announce the delivery of our new Boeing 737 MAX 8 – the first out of a planned 37 new aircraft on order. The MAX 8 builds on the strengths of the current Boeing 737, while offering notable enhancements such as improved legroom, more spacious overhead storage bins, modern sculpted sidewalls and LED lighting – all of which ensure that our passengers can enjoy an even more comfortable journey.
Additionally, the MAX 8 uses 20% less fuel compared to its predecessor, marking a big step towards more sustainable operations.
To mark this milestone, SilkAir held a launch party on 4 October, which saw numerous stakeholders and key members of the media in attendance. “We are thrilled to be welcoming the new Boeing 737 MAX 8 to the SilkAir family,” commented CEO Mr. Foo Chai Woo. “The new MAX 8 enables us to offer customers access to new and exciting destinations and paves the way for a new phase of growth.”
What’s more, SilkAir has also created a dedicated MAX 8 microsite to further celebrate the launch. Here, you can learn more about the new fleet and even stand a chance to win a pair of tickets on different MAX 8 routes by participating in online games.
