Checking in with Silk Air this morning for our departure to Manado was effortless. For those who accrue points on Singapore Airlines’ KrisFlyer program, Silk Air will honour and redeem those points. However, many make the mistake in thinking they are a partner to other Star Alliance members, too. Points aside, at over 15 diving destinations, they provide additional allowances to divers who travel with their own gear and honor international baggage allowance when the connection is made within 48 hours! A great (and cheaper) selection for those of us who prefer to still travel with our full gear.
