SilkAir Part 2: Laos launch extends SIA Group ASEAN network to 42 destinations and all 10 countries
The Singapore Airlines (SIA) Group will in Oct-2016 become the second airline group after AirAsia to serve all 10 ASEAN countries. Laos is the last piece of the puzzle and will be served by SIA full service regional subsidiary SilkAir with a new thrice weekly Singapore-Vientiane-Luang Prabang-Singapore circle routing.
Following the launch of Luang Prabang and Vientiane, SilkAir will have 32 Southeast Asian destinations and the SIA Group will have 42. Connecting secondary markets in the fast growing Southeast Asian region is critical for SIA as it tries to unlock a new era of growth and differentiate itself from competitors.
This is Part 2 in a two part series of reports. The first part focused on expected growth in the Lao international market and how SilkAir is trying to benefit. This part will focus on how the launch of services to Laos is an important step in the SIA Group network strategy.
