History of SilkAir

SilkAir was originally founded as an air-charter company in the mid 1970s. It used leased planes from Singapore Airlines to service flights to holiday destinations. In the early 1990s the airline added other regional destinations catering business travellers on top of their regular leisure travellers. At this time destinations to China and India were also added.
