Silk Air, the regional wing of Singapore Airlines, is all set to celebrate its silver jubilee anniversary on February 21. To commemorate this milestone, the airlines will be rewarding its Business Class customers travelling from India with a limited edition 24 K gold coin weighing 4 grams each in a special eight-day promotion.

Customers from India booking their round trip Business Class flights on Silk Air during February 21-  28  for travel between March 1 and July 31 this year will receive up to two coins each .

Customers flying from Kochi, Thiruvananthapuram, Visakhapatnam, Hyderabad and Coimbatore will receive the gold coin featuring the Silk Air and Boeing 737 logo. Those  flying from Bengaluru, Chennai, Kolkata, Delhi, Mumbai and Ahmedabad will receive the gold coin featuring the Silk Air and the special 25th anniversary logo.

Commenting on the anniversary celebrations Silk Air general manager India David Lau told mediapersons here on Wednesday that 2.5 lakh specially-priced tickets will also be released worldwide to mark the jubilee.

The tickets will be up for sale from February 20 to the end of October this year. ‘’Added to value for money, quality of  service and reliability, which are  the highlights with regard to Silk Air, the specially-priced ticket offer will go well with travellers,’’ he hoped.

He said that that Silk Air is concentrated on operations in the Far East, unlike Emirates,which is focused on Middle East and Europe. ‘’In India, we have the maximum number of  passengers from Mumbai. Chennai and Kochi also contribute much to the total business,’’ he said.  Seventy-five percent of the flights operated by Silk Air from India are from airports in south Indian states.

‘’We  took delivery of our first Boeing 737-800 aircraft this month. The new aircraft promises a more comfortable experience for our customers,’’ he added.

Since its inception, the airline’s network has expanded to cover 45 exotic destinations in 12 countries across the region.  Silk Air operates the maximum number of  flights from Hyderabad and Kochi - 10 in a week. From Thiruvananthapuram, the other airport in the state where the airlines is operating, there are four weekly flights to Singapore.

Seah Chee Lau, manager, Southern India and Noel Teo, manager ,Thiruvananthapuram, were also present at the news conference.
