The codeshare smooths travel within Asia Pacific.
Travel in Asia Pacific just got a little bit easier again as Singapore Airlines (SIA) confirms it will be resuming its pre-pandemic codeshare arrangement with Virgin Australia.
The announcement is effective immediately and means travellers will be able to book joined-up travel between Australia, Asia and Europe.
Virgin will codeshare on 42 destination in 23 countries on the SIA network, including Singapore, Ho Chi Minh City, Seoul, Jakarta, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Paris and London.
Meanwhile, SIA will offer 64 codeshare routes to 31 destinations on Virgin’s domestic Australian and international network, including the addition of Queenstown in New Zealand. The carriers expect to expand the codeshare network in the coming weeks.
Both airlines expressed their excitement at the resumption of the partnership.
“Virgin Australia has been a longstanding partner of Singapore Airlines for over a decade, helping to fly our mutual customers to key destinations in Australia around the world,” said SIA senior vice president, JoAnn Tan.
Mileage and points redemption conversion has also resumed for members of SIA’s KrisFlyer and Virgin’s Velocity frequent flyer programmes.
