Singapore Airlines’ history dates back to 1947, with the maiden flight of Malayan Airways Limited. The airline was later re-named Malaysian Airways Limited, and then Malaysia-Singapore Airlines. In 1972, it split into Singapore Airlines and Malaysian Airline System. Today, Singapore Airlines operates a modern passenger fleet of more than 100 aircraft to 62 destinations in 32 countries. Together with wholly-owned subsidiaries SilkAir, Scoot, Tiger Airways (which operates as Tigerair) and SIA Cargo, the SIA Group fleet comprises nearly 180 aircraft. The combined passenger network covers 132 destinations in 36 countries.
