SilkAir enhances onboard comfort with Boeing Sky Interior


SilkAir enhances onboard comfort with Boeing Sky Interior

SilkAir has taken delivery of the first of 23 Boeing 737-800s, which will help to provide an improved passenger experience thanks to the innovative Sky Interior.

SilkAir, the regional wing of Singapore Airlines, has taken delivery of its first next-generation Boeing 737-800, which comes complete with the Sky Interior that is designed to provide a more relaxing cabin environment for passengers.

Innovative architecture has been applied to the cabin interior to create a feeling of spaciousness and LED lighting is used to simulate a blue sky overhead.

The stowage bins can also accommodate more bags, which means passengers will not have to worry about using some of their leg room to store their smaller cabin bags.

Dinesh Keskar, Senior Vice President of Asia Pacific and India Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes, said: “The 737-800’s efficiency and reliability makes it an excellent addition to the SilkAir fleet. SilkAir’s passengers also will enjoy an enhanced flying experience with the comfort of the 737 Boeing Sky Interior and the airline’s award-winning service.”
