From June 23, Singapore Airlines’ customers from the Belgian city of Brussels can fly to Singapore and beyond via three European hubs through a codeshare agreement with SIA’s Star Alliance partner Brussels Airlines.
Brussels Airlines, which offers the widest choice of flights from Belgium, will add the ‘SQ’ designator code on three weekly round-trips between Brussels and Barcelona, 12 weekly round-trips between Brussels and London Heathrow and six weekly round-trips between Brussels and Milan Malpensa Airport.
Singapore Airlines operates 21 weekly round-trips between Singapore and London, seven weekly round-trips between Singapore and Barcelona, and seven weekly round-trips between Singapore and Milan. From these hubs, customers of Singapore Airlines from Asia and the South West Pacific can continue their journey to Brussels on Brussels Airlines. Singapore Airlines does not fly to Brussels.
“We are pleased to announce this codeshare agreement with our Star Alliance partner Brussels Airlines. The agreement demonstrates Singapore Airlines’ commitment to providing customers greater flexibility for travel within Europe,” says Tan Chik Quee, Singapore Airlines’ senior vice president marketing.
Brussels Airlines’ three-times-weekly flight SN3695 between Brussels and Barcelona will also be given the SIA flight number SQ2805. In the other direction, flight SN3706 will also bear the SIA flight number SQ2804.
Between Brussels and Heathrow, Brussels Airlines’ daily flight SN2093 will also feature the Singapore Airlines flight number SQ2823. Flight SN2101, which operates six days a week, will bear the flight number SQ2821. From Heathrow to Brussels, Brussels Airlines’ six-times-weekly flight SN2102 will also feature the SIA flight number SQ2820; and the five-days-a-week flight SN2092 will also be given the flight number SQ2822. (Brussels Airlines appears to operate 13 flights on the Brussels-Heathrow sector each week, but only 11 flights a week on the Heathrow-Brussels sector.)
Between Brussels and Milan Malpensa, Brussels Airlines’ flight SN3155 (which operates on four days each week) will also fly under the flight number SQ2801. Flight SN3153, which operates twice a week, receives the flight number SQ2803. In the other direction, flight number SN3154 (operating three days each week) also becomes SQ2800; and flight SN3156 (also operating three times a week) is given the additional flight number SQ2802.
