Singapore Airlines, Avianca sign codeshare agreement
SINGAPORE Airlines (SIA) and Latin-American carrier Avianca have signed an agreement to codeshare on each other's flights with effect from September 2017.
Under the new agreement, SIA customers will have wider connections to Bogotá, Colombia, Avianca's major hub location and the financial and commercial centre of Colombia.
A codeshare agreement is an aviation business arrangement where two or more airlines share the same flight; sharing, in this sense, means that each airline publishes and markets the flight under its own airline designator and flight number as part of its published schedule.
Thus, SIA will add its "SQ" designator code to Avianca-operated flights from its European gateways at Barcelona and London to Bogotá. In turn, Avianca will add its "AV" designator code to SIA-operated flights between Singapore and both Barcelona and London.
The codeshare flights will be made available for sale across all sales channels on SIA and Avianca progressively, beginning September 2017.
