SilkAir is giving up to 150 aviation buffs an opportunity to fly a Boeing 737-800 simulator, to mark the delivery of its first new B-737 jet.

The 25-hour flight simulator event will track the actual delivery route from Boeing's Renton factory in Seattle, in the United States, to Changi Airport.

It will take place overnight from Feb 7 to 8 at Flight Experience Singapore at the Singapore Flyer. SilkAir which has ordered 54 of the aircraft will collect eight this year.

The first will start flying to Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Phuket and Medan from Feb 20.

Travellers can look forward to a more comfortable flight with new cabin interiors and other facilities such as in-seat power plugs.

To celebrate SilkAir's 25th year anniversary this year, the airline will also be offering promotional fares. More details of this and the flight simulator event will be released soon.
