The expanded codeshare ties will provide SIA customers convenient access to over 20 new routes on Lufthansa- and SWISS-operated flights, to and from points in Europe via the transfer hubs of Frankfurt, Munich and Zurich, such as:
– Via Frankfurt: Aberdeen, Billund, Birmingham, Bologna, Bucharest, Dublin, Edinburgh, Florence, Gothenburg, Lisbon, Madrid, Porto, Tallinn and Venice;
– Via Munich: Madrid, Marseille, Nice and Toulouse;
– Via Zurich: Belgrade, Florence, Lyon, Sofia and Venice.
In turn, Lufthansa and SWISS customers will be able to access new points, via SIA-operated flights between Singapore and destinations such as Canberra, Dusseldorf and Wellington. SIA’s regional subsidiary, SilkAir, will also progressively introduce new codeshare flights with the Lufthansa Group.
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 Southwest Pacific.
