Silkair And Air Macau Announce Macau Codeshare Agreement

SilkAir (MI) and Air Macau (NX) are pleased to announce that from 26 October 2003, they will codeshare on all their flights between Singapore (SIN) and Macau (MFM). With the codeshared services, customers of both airlines are now free to travel between Singapore and Macau on either airline, thus enjoying greater flexibility during their travels.

"We are very pleased about this codeshare agreement with Air Macau," said Mr Chooi Yee Choong, Vice President Commercial of SilkAir. "This closer cooperation with Air Macau augurs well for both airlines in expanding our respective networks beyond Macau, and similarly, beyond Singapore. Macau is an important gateway to the Pearl River Delta and Greater China while Singapore is an international hub. With this codeshare, Air Macau and SilkAir hope to develop Macau and Singapore as crossroads for a burgeoning airlink," he added.

"The cooperation is encouraging," agreed Mr. Wang Xuefeng, Commercial Director of Air Macau. "We will work closely with SilkAir to sustain long term development of Macau -Singapore v.v. markets and the connecting markets beyond Macau and Singapore. It is not only for the mutual benefit of the carriers but also for the benefit of the passengers." He continued, "Through the codeshare cooperation, carriers will be able to make better use of limited resources for more extensive development and the passengers of each carrier will enjoy greater convenience of more frequencies and assurance of sustainable quality services."
