Default SilkAir Selects Thompson Aero Seating For Flat-Bed Business Class Seat Upgrades

SilkAir Selects Thompson Aero Seating For Flat-Bed Business Class Seat Upgrades

11 February 2019 - Singapore Airlinesí (SIA) regional wing, SilkAir, has selected Thompson Aero Seating for the upgrade of Business Class seats on its Boeing 737 MAX 8 fleet. The upgrades are a part of a significant investment programme that will eventually see SilkAir merged into SIA.

The upgrades will commence in May 2020 and will feature new lie-flat Business Class seats in a forward-facing staggered layout Ė in line with SIAís regional Business Class offering on its Airbus A350-900 medium-haul and Boeing 787-10 fleets.

SilkAir currently has five 737 MAX 8s in its fleet with another 32 on order. The new seats will be retrofitted onto aircraft already in the fleet, and installed at the time of arrival in Singapore for aircraft not yet delivered.

Plans for the upgrades were announced in May 2018, as part of a move to more closely align SilkAirís products and services with those of SIA in preparation for its merger into SIA. The merger will eventually encompass a full re-branding of SilkAir as SIA, with repainting of aircraft and adoption of SIAís service delivery.

The upgrade programme will also see the installation of new seat-back in-flight entertainment systems in both Business Class and Economy Class. An announcement on the supplier for these systems will be made soon.

Will Silkair ground all its 737 max 8 for more detailed checks with this 2nd crash of Ethiopian 738, as even China has asked its airlines to ground them for checks. Both the Lion and Ethiopian planes are all very new planes with less than half year of service.
