Singapore and Aegean Airlines Sign Codeshare Agreement


Singapore Airlines and Aegean Airlines Sign Codeshare Agreement

From 1 December 2012, Singapore Airlines customers will be able to fly to the Greek cities of Athens and Thessaloniki through a codeshare agreement with Star Alliance partner Aegean Airlines.

Under the agreement, Singapore Airlines will add its ‘SQ’ code to Aegean-operated flights serving the Greek capital Athens from Frankfurt, London, Milan and Munich, as well as to flights serving Greece’s second-largest city Thessaloniki from Frankfurt and Munich.

On a reciprocal basis, Aegean will add its ‘A3’ code to SIA-operated flights serving Singapore from Frankfurt, Milan and Munich, and flights beyond Singapore to Melbourne and Sydney. Aegean’s codeshare on Singapore Airlines-operated flights will commence once regulatory approvals have been obtained.

“This new codeshare arrangement with our Star Alliance partner Aegean Airlines will provide our customers convenient connections to Greece and broaden our network for both business and leisure travellers,” said Singapore Airlines Acting Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing, Mr Chin Yau Seng.

Aegean Airlines’ Planning & Alliances Director, Mr Tassos Raftopoulos, added: “Aegean Airlines are delighted to team up with Singapore Airlines whose high quality product and service ethics closely match our own customer proposition, with an expansion that aligns very well to the further growth of our Star Alliance partnerships. Thanks to this new partnership we can now offer Greek passengers a great travel solution to Singapore and via Singapore to all countries in Southeast Asia and Australia. Connecting flights via Singapore, a major hub in Southeast Asia, will facilitate incoming tourism from these important markets.”

Tickets for the codeshare flights are now open for sale, for travel from 1 December 2012. Details of the codeshare services are shown in below. Customers are advised to check singaporeair.com for updates to flight schedules.
