Scoot will be moving their Bangkok flights from BKK to DMK in May this year. TZ will join their sister airline NokScoot at DMK.

Was lucky enough to be able to attend the Silkair event Bringing Boeing Home to celebrate the 25th anniversary as well as the delivery of their first 737-800

"Boarding Pass" to the event. We can bring a guest


Food and Beverages just like the ones on-board being served


During the landing party on the 8th, Silkair CEO was there


Consolation prize: Model of Boeing 737-800 9V-MGA in the special livery


Every participant got this cert

Is that the livery that is supposed to be on the real 9V-MGA? So underwhelming.

But great pictures netsurfe! Thanks for sharing.

Thanks ZNaseer.

Judging from the pics when Silkair took delivery of the plane few days ago, the livery on the real plane is nothing special, just the standard current livery.
I hope I get to try the new bird soon, despite the disappointment that they will lack PTV

That'll be great! I wonder if Silk Air will get more B737s aside from the 50 it has ordered so far... and by the way, are there any more destinations in Southeast Asia that MI would like to serve soon?

The plane is scheduled to arrive on the 12th of February at 1145. So those spotters might want to catch her.

Official Silkair statement has said that the airplane will feature a special 25th anniversary livery.

I guess it will be applied on the aircraft between 12-14th of February and it should be a relatively quick sticker job?

There are two that have been announced: Kalibo and Mandalay,
but I think few more are in the pipeline.
And they ordered 54 planes, with IIRC options on 14 more.

Interesting. Too bad can't be in Changi at that time....

SIA, Airbus to set up flight training centre in S'pore
POSTED: 12 Feb 2014 10:32


Singapore Airlines and Airbus will set up a joint-venture flight training centre in Singapore that is scheduled to start operations towards the end of this year. The planned Airbus Asia Training Centre (AATC) will be 55-percent owned by Airbus and 45-percent owned by SIA.

SINGAPORE: Singapore Airlines and Airbus will set up a joint-venture flight training centre in Singapore that is scheduled to start operations towards the end of this year.

The planned Airbus Asia Training Centre (AATC) will be 55-percent owned by Airbus and 45-percent owned by SIA.

The two parties will contribute an initial S$80 million to set up the training centre, which will be equipped with flight simulators for aircraft such as the Airbus A320, A350 and A380.

AATC will initially operate from the SIA Training Centre near Changi Airport before moving to Seletar Aerospace Park when a dedicated facility is completed.

Airbus' other training centres are located in Beijing, Miami and Toulouse.

Any photo of the Silkair's Boeing 737NG interior? Does it feature individual AVOD system on each of passenger seats?

Nope, no individual AVOD system. Just the same type as seen on the A319/A320 fleet.

They will have the streaming system though.
I talked with some of the pilots at the Event, and they said they have heard quite some people complaining about that.

Btw, looks like the "special" livery is a temporary one because it was done quickly after the bird arrived here. And, it matches the diecast

Very basic, borderline shameful "amenities"

Sounds a bit like rip off for some passengers.

Wouldn't think IFE would be needed for short intra-asia flights to regional destinations I'd think?

My suggestion would be complimentary Wireless BYOD IFE (Bring Your Own Device), if it was a "necessity" by passengers.

Sister airline and LCC Scoot already has the wireless IFE system operating for a fee.

If you have been following the news, the BYOD model is exactly what Silkair will be using. They are now running a trial on one of their A320, and the 738s have it, but not yet activated, I guess pending the trial result.
