Singapore Airlines (SIA) and Virgin Australia (VA) have resumed the sale of VA codeshare flights to a host of destinations on SIA’s global network.
Customers can now book directly on Virgin Australia’s website for seamless travel to and from Australia, Asia, Africa, Europe, and beyond, as well as enjoy the full rewards and benefits of the expanded partnership.
Collaborating since 2011, both carriers have continued to strengthen their offering for travellers prior to the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, providing one of the world’s most beneficial frequent flyer programme tie-ups.
Alistair Hartley, group chief strategy and transformation officer, VA said: “Expanding our partnership with Singapore Airlines means we are able to offer our loyal customers more choice and value when travelling internationally, creating more ways to see the world, through wonderful travel experiences on Singapore Airlines.”
VA will codeshare on 42 destinations covering 23 countries on the SIA network, including Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam; Seoul in South Korea; Amsterdam, Copenhagen, and Paris in Europe; London in the UK; Jakarta in Indonesia; and SIA’s homebase, Singapore.
SIA will continue to offer codeshare flights on 64 routes covering 31 destinations on VA’s domestic and international network, including the addition of Queenstown in New Zealand.
JoAnn Tan, senior vice president marketing planning, SIA said: “The return of the VA code on SIA flights provides even more opportunities for Australians to seamlessly explore the world, no matter where they are based. As more countries across Asia remove travel restrictions, it also opens up Australia to travellers from these regions.”
The two carriers will continue to expand codeshare flights to more destinations across SIA’s network in the coming weeks, subject to regulatory approval.
