SIA’s regional subsidiary SilkAir has made another relatively short-term addition to its flying network, with the Vietnamese city of Da Nang joining the carrier’s schedule from 29th November 2020. It’s the second leisure-oriented destination the airline has announced a return to recently, with Malé in the Maldives restarting a couple of days later on 1st December 2020.
SilkAir, which is in the process of being fully merged into SIA’s mainline operation, has only recently started adding a significant number of passenger services, lagging well behind the mainline carrier with a current network of only seven cities, rising to nine after Da Nang and Malé join the fold.
Overall, the regional division will now operate 4.1% of its pre-COVID capacity by flight volumes in December 2020, based on comparison with December 2019.
Da Nang added
From 29th November 2020, SilkAir will add a weekly Boeing 737-800 service to and from Da Nang in Vietnam to its network.
The airport is a gateway to the Marble Mountains, UNESCO World Heritage site Mỹ Sơn and the many beach resorts along the nearby Hoi An coastline.
Here’s how the schedule looks:
