Star Alliance carriers Singapore Airlines and Ethiopian Airlines are expanding their existing codeshare agreement with effect from December 3.
Under the expanded agreement, codesharing will be expanded to Ethiopian Airlines-operated flights between Singapore and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia’s capital, via Bangkok.
On a reciprocal basis, Ethiopian Airlines will codeshare on Singapore Airlines-operated flights beyond Singapore to Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney in Australia.
Singapore Airlines will also codeshare on Ethiopian Airlines-operated intra-Africa flights from Addis Ababa to Pointe-Noire in the Republic of the Congo, Accra in Ghana, Mombasa and Nairobi in Kenya, Kigali in Rwanda, Dar es Salaam in Tanzania and Entebbe in Uganda, subject to regulatory approvals.
The two Star Alliance airlines have been codesharing since November 2011 on flights between Addis Ababa and Dubai, and between Singapore and Dubai. The agreement was expanded in October 2012 to include flights between Addis Ababa and New Delhi, and between Singapore and New Delhi.
Both airlines also expanded their codesharing on flights between Addis Ababa and Bangkok, and between Singapore and Bangkok in July this year.
