SIA and SAS joint-venture flights launched

First joint-venture flight departed CPH on Saturday

Singapore Airlines and Scandinavian Airlines launched their first joint-venture flight on Saturday, operated by a Boeing 777-200ER. The two initially signed a joint venture agreement in May 2012 and, after getting the necessary regulatory approvals, the airlines launched flight SQ351 and SK8000, respectively, departing Copenhagen at 12.10 with 276 customers on board bound non-stop for Singapore’s Changi Airport.
Singapore Airlines will continue to operate the non-stop flights to Singapore three times a week until the end of March, before frequencies will increase to five a week from 2 April. In addition, SAS will adjust its connecting flights from Norway, Sweden and Finland to Copenhagen in order to increase the attractiveness of the new joint-venture flights.
SIA and SAS have been codesharing since December 2010. SIA adds its code to SAS-operated flights beyond Copenhagen to Helsinki, Oslo and Stockholm, while SAS has been codesharing on SIA-operated flights between Copenhagen and Singapore, and on selected flights between Singapore and Bangkok. Further expansion of codeshare ties is currently under discussion. New services between Singapore and Scandinavia will also be explored.
