JV covers flights between Europe and Singapore, Australia
Singapore Airlines and Lufthansa Group have launched a joint venture covering flights between Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Belgium and both Singapore and Australia.
With October 1 as the launch date, customers can now choose from a broader range of travel itineraries and fare products that will be progressively be on offer.
The airline groups signed a joint venture agreement in November 2015, since which they have expanded capacity between Singapore and both Germany and Switzerland, including a new SIA-operated Singapore-Dusseldorf route launched in July 2016.
Then, in March 2017, Swiss deployed a new Boeing 777-300ER on daily flights between Singapore and Zurich. Lufthansa says it will reintroduce Munich-Singapore from next March.
The groups have also significantly increased codeshare ties, with over 130 city pairs now offered between key markets in Europe, Southeast Asia and Southwest Pacific.
