Singapore Airlines Ltd. will start flying freshly fitted Boeing Co. 737 Max jets to countries including Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand in the coming weeks, the company said Tuesday. 

The carrier is absorbing six of the 154-seat narrow-body planes into its fleet with the integration of its SilkAir unit. Another is expected to enter service before March, and then seven more are due to join operations next fiscal year.
