Singapore Airlines and Star Alliance partner Aegean Airlines have signed a reciprocal codeshare deal, which goes into effect on December 1.
Under the agreement, Singapore Airlines will add its ‘SQ’ code to Aegean Airlines-operated flights serving Greece’s capital Athens from Frankfurt, London, Milan and Munich.
SIA will also add its flight code to Aegean Airlines flights serving Greece’s second-largest city Thessaloniki from Frankfurt and Munich.
On a reciprocal basis, Aegean Airlines 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 begin once regulatory approvals have been obtained.
Tickets for the codeshare flights are now available for booking, for travel from December 1.
“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 travelers,” said Chin Yau Seng, Singapore Airlines’ acting senior vice president sales and marketing.
“Aegean Airlines are delighted to team up with Singapore Airlines, whose high quality product and service ethics closely match our own customer proposition, with an expansion that aligns very well to the further growth of our Star Alliance partnerships,” said Tassos Raftopoulos, Aegean Airlines’ planning & alliances director.
“Thanks to this new partnership we can now offer Greek passengers a great travel solution to Singapore and via Singapore to all countries in Southeast Asia and Australia,” Raftopoulos added. “Connecting flights via Singapore, a major hub in Southeast Asia, will facilitate incoming tourism from these important markets.”
