Silk Air to add flights to Coimbatore

SilkAir, an arm of Singapore Airlines, today announced its plans to add a thrice-weekly flight service between Singapore and Coimbatore from October.

Subject to government approval, the flights will mark the first ever-direct air service between both cities.

Popularly known as the ‘Manchester’ of South India, Coimbatore makes for the regional airline’s third destination in South India, after Kochi and Thiruvananthapuram in Kerala.

SilkAir also plans to launch its flights to Kathmandu, Nepal later this year. ‘We’re very excited about the new routes,” said Chin Yau Seng Chief Executive of SilkAir in a release here. ‘Both cities are well-aligned with SilkAir’s network,” he said.

The new routes will take SilkAir’s networks to 29 exotic destinations across 11 countries. SilkAir operates a fleet of 14 Airbus A-320 family aircraft, with 11 more on firm order and options for a further nine, the release added.

  5. Silk air coimbatore – Unaffordable

    Silk air service is great news for coimbatoreans and people around coimbatore. I am taking the inagural flight from singapore to coimbatore on the 28th of october. The return fare is 535 singapore dollars. However, when i tried to book tickets for my family from coimbatore to singapore ( one way). I was shocked to know that the one way fare cost Rs. 20,000 and a return somewhere around Rs. 28.000. This is crazy. I can very well travel by jet airways for half this fare from chennai. Here is the address of the Silk air office in coimbatore CJB Address/Tel/Fax nbrs

    I tried to contact them a week back, but the office is just taking shape. Unless the price is brought down , I strongly feel that silkair service to singapore will be a failure.
