Silk Air, Singapore Airlines' regional subsidiary, is planning to issue an RFP next month for replacements for its fleet of 12 A320s. The RFP almost certainly will include 70/90-seat regional jets. According to sources at the carrier, while the A320 is the incumbent fleet type, the 737-800 and dash 900ER will be evaluated. Silk Air selected the A320 in 1998 to replace its fleet of 737-300s.
