Where are the SilkAir 737 MAX aircraft flying?

More legroom and freshly brewed coffee in business class, device holders and USB charging in economy. We'd try to pick the 737 MAX whenever flying SilkAir.

Update: 12th March 2019. SilkAir’s Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft are grounded until further notice. You can see an updated list of the routes it was flying as of March 2019 and read more about the grounding here.

It’s been a few months since we looked at where SilkAir are flying their latest 737 MAX 8 aircraft, so here’s an update on the current schedules for these new jets, which feature the latest SilkAir Business Class and Economy Class seats.

Earlier this month the fourth SilkAir 737 MAX aircraft was delivered from a total order of 37. Those four planes are flying 92 flights per week between them across 11 destinations from Singapore.

Note: 11th March 2019. Owing to recent events this article from April 2018 is attracting some increased attention. SilkAir now has six Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft in service (9V-MBA to -MBF). The destination list remains as per the map above, with the exception of Fuzhou which is no longer served by the MAX.

In addition, selected Penang flights (2 per week) and selected Wuhan flights (4 per week) also use the MAX. The schedules below may no longer be accurate.

Our sincere condolences to those affected by the recent tragic 737 MAX accidents.

Note: 12th March 2019. SilkAir grounds the 737 MAX 8.
