The expanded codeshare ties will provide Singapore Airlines customers convenient access to over 20 new routes on Lufthansa- and Swiss-operated flights, to and from points in Austria, Belgium, Germany and Switzerland via the transfer hubs of Munich and Zurich such as:
– Via Munich: Berlin, Bremen, Brussels, Cologne, Dusseldorf, Geneva, Hamburg, Hanover, Nuremberg, Stuttgart, Vienna, Zurich;
– Via Zurich: Berlin, Dresden, Dusseldorf, Graz, Hanover, Hamburg, Nuremburg, Stuttgart.
In turn, Lufthansa and Swiss customers will be able to access codeshare travel on SIA-operated flights on routes serving destinations in Southeast Asia and the Southwest Pacific.
The expanded codeshare operations are the result of a joint venture agreement signed between the two airline groups in November 2015, which aims to deepen co-operation in key markets in Europe, Southeast Asia and Australia.
Through the partnership – some elements of which are subject to regulatory approvals – the two airline groups will jointly offer customers from these markets more seamless access to flights, a broad range of joint fare products and aligned corporate programmes to strengthen the proposition to corporate customers, among other benefits.
