SilkAir to begin Boeing 737 MAX 8 Service from Singapore in October 2017

The latest schedule update from SilkAir sees an earlier entry date of the Boeing 737 MAX 8 which will start from 05 October 2017 (previous filing was for 29 October 2017). As I have mentioned before, SilkAir is currently in the midst of transitioning from the Airbus A320s to Boeing 737-800s and 737 MAX 8s (which has a smaller seat pitch).
