SIA, Ethiopian Airlines broaden codeshare deal
Singapore and Addis Ababa, April 10, 2017

Star Alliance members Singapore Airlines and Ethiopian Airlines will expand their codeshare agreement as of June 1, 2017, which will include the latter’s upcoming daily Singapore-Addis Ababa service scheduled for launch in June 2017.


Under the expanded agreement, Singapore Airlines customers will enjoy access to Ethiopian Airlines’ intra-African network including countries like Botswana, Burkina Faso, Chad, Cote D’Ivoire, Kenya, Nigeria, Mozambique, The Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, Seychelles, South Africa, Tanzania and Zimbabwe.



In turn, Ethiopian Airlines customers will be able to access destinations in Australia, China, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Thailand and Vietnam across Singapore Airlines’ network.


Acting vice president, strategic and alliances, Ethiopian Airlines, Girma Shiferaw, remarked: “The two airlines will synergise their respective networks in Asia and Africa to offer customers the best connectivity options with one ticket and a single check-in at the first boarding airport.


"It will also play a critical role in enhancing investment, trade and tourism ties between a rising Africa, and a highly developed, innovative, and business-friendly Singapore.”


The two airlines first began codesharing on each other’s flights to and from Dubai in 2011.
