Singapore’s SilkAir will continue to expand its network in China later this year, with the launch services to Fuzhou, the capital of the southestern province of Fujian.
Commencing on 21 November 2016, the new service will operate four times a week. Flights will depart Singapore’s Changi Airport every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at 1035 and arrive at Fuzhou’s Changle International Airport at 1505. The return services will then leave at 1615 and arrive back in Singapore at 2100.
SilkAir will deploy a two-class Boeing 737 aircraft on the route.
“We are delighted to launch our new flight route to Fuzhou, the capital of Fujian province. We hope that this would open up exciting opportunities for travellers between Fuzhou and Singapore, and also beyond these two major gateways,” said SilkAir’s chief executive, Foo Chai Woo.
Following the addition of Fuzhou, SilkAir will serve a total of eight Chinese cities: Changsha, Chengdu, Chongqing, Fuzhou, Kunming, Shenzhen, Wuhan and Xiamen.
