SilkAir has added another new route to China, with the launch of flights to Hangzhou.

The new service to the capital of Zhejiang province becomes the Singaporean carrier’s eighth route into mainland China, following existing services to Changsha, Chengdu, Chongqing, Kunming, Shenzhen, Wuhan and Xiamen.

Flights will operate four times a week, departing Singapore’s Changi Airport every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at 1000. The return leg leaves Hangzhou at 1620 the same day.

“SilkAir will be the only full service carrier connecting Hangzhou directly to Singapore. We are confident that this service will see strong demand from the different market segments, flying into Hangzhou and flying out of Hangzhou to our combined SilkAir and Singapore Airlines network,” said SilkAir’s chief executive, Leslie Thng.

“China is an important market for SilkAir. The launch of our flights to Hangzhou shows that we remain committed to develop this market which has strong potential for growth.”

With this latest launch, SilkAir’s frequencies to China increase to 50 flights per week.
