SilkAir transitions to Boeing 737 aircraft fleet, signs pilot training agreement

Boeing 737

SEATTLE, 7 Feb. 2013. Boeing (NYSE:BA) and Singapore-based SilkAir entered into a five-year exclusive pilot training agreement.

The training agreement comes in support of SilkAir's transition to a fleet of Boeing airplanes. In Nov. 2012, SilkAir finalized an order for 23 Next-Generation 737-800s and 31 737 MAX 8s--the largest order in the airline's history.

Boeing Flight Services, a unit of Boeing Commercial Aviation Services, will provide flight training at Boeing's Singapore training campus for the airline's new 737 fleet.

"SilkAir pilots will soon train with the most experienced 737 instructors," explains Leslie Thng, SilkAir chief executive. "The experience and expertise at Boeing will ensure a smooth transition when we take delivery of our first new 737 next year."

SilkAir is a full-service airline and the regional wing of Singapore Airlines. SilkAir currently flies more than 300 flights a week to 42 destinations across 12 countries.
