SilkAir returns to Da Nang in November

SilkAir is set to return to Vietnam with weekly Da Nang flights starting in November, though the country remains closed to tourists.

Do they know something we don't?

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.
