SIA-SAS codeshare reaches deep into Nordics

Agreement expanded to cover more destinations

Singapore Airlines (SIA) and Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) have expanded their codeshare agreement to cover more destinations in Europe, Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

With immediate effect, the agreement has been expanded to SAS-operated flights from Copenhagen to Alesund, Bergen, Stavanger and Trondheim in Norway; Gothenburg in Sweden; Aalborg, Aarhus and Billund in Denmark; and Turku in Finland.

SAS in turn is codesharing on SIA-operated flights beyond Singapore to Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney in Australia; Auckland in New Zealand; Denpasar (Bali) and Jakarta in Indonesia; and Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia.

“This codeshare expansion is an important step in the deepening of our cooperation with SAS,” said Lee Wen Fen, SIA’s acting senior VP for marketing planning. “We are pleased to be able to offer our customers greater access to destinations in Scandinavia through our partnership with SAS.”

Star Alliance partners SIA and SAS received final regulatory approval for a joint venture in November last year. The partnership encompasses joint operations including the coordination of flight schedules and joint sales activities. As part of the deal, SIA increased the frequency of flights between Singapore and Copenhagen from 31 March this year from three to five flights a week, with SAS codesharing on the flights. SIA and SAS have been codesharing since December 2010.
