Under the agreement, SIA will add its ‘SQ’ code to Aegean-operated flights serving the Greek capital Athens from Frankfurt, London, Milan and Munich, as well as to flights serving Greece’s second-largest city Thessaloniki from Frankfurt and Munich.
On a reciprocal basis, Aegean will add its ‘A3’ code to SIA-operated flights serving Singapore from Frankfurt, Milan and Munich, and flights beyond Singapore to Melbourne and Sydney. Aegean’s codeshare on SIA-operated flights will commence once regulatory approvals have been obtained.
“This new codeshare arrangement with our Star Alliance partner Aegean Airlines will provide our customers convenient connections to Greece and broaden our network for both business and leisure travellers,” said Chin Yau Seng, Singapore Airlines acting senior vice president sales and marketing.
Tickets for the codeshare flights are now open for sale, for travel from 1 December 2012.
