SilkAir currently operates five flights per day on the popular Singapore-Phuket route, and a sixth will be introduced with effect from May 24, noted a release announcing the new flights.

“The new service will be operated by Boeing 737 aircraft, which feature both Business and Economy Class cabins. Customers can look forward to a full-service experience, including in-flight meals, wireless in-flight entertainment on SilkAir Studio, complimentary baggage allowance as well as through check-in if they are connecting to or from another SilkAir or Singapore Airlines point via Singapore,” the release noted.

The additional service, MI760, will depart Singapore at 9:50am (Singapore Time) and arrive at Phuket at 10:45am (Phuket Time).

The return flight will operate as MI759, departing Phuket at 11:35am (Phuket Time) and arriving in Singapore at 2:20pm (Singapore Time). (See schedule below.)

As the regional wing of Singapore Airlines, SilkAir extends the SIA Group’s network by seeding and developing new destinations in the Asia-Pacific, noted the release.

The airline took to the skies in February 1989 as Tradewinds the Airline, before evolving into SilkAir in 1992. In its early days, it catered to passengers holidaying in exotic destinations in the region, including Phuket and Tioman. As the carrier developed, regional business destinations such as Phnom Penh, Yangon and Kuala Lumpur were added.

Today, the full-service airline operates about 400 weekly flights to 49 destinations in 16 countries.

"SilkAir currently has six 737 MAX 8s. As of the morning of 12 March 2019, all six aircraft have been grounded in Singapore and will not be returned to service until further notice. SilkAir's 17 Boeing 737-800NGs are not affected."
When making booking when you click on aircraft details,it may come up with 737-800. This is not the same aircraft.

I often fly down to Singas on those flights. I've been a customer of Singapore Airlines / Silk Air for over  40 years now, however, I will not be boarding a 737 MAX 8  aircraft which have now been banned / grounded in Singapore Airspace, Australian Airspace & Indian Airspace. Standing by for the Thai Aviation Authorities to ground all of Thailand's  Boeing 737 Max 8 for obvious reasons...
