SINGAPORE Airlines (SIA) and Thai Airways will start codesharing on their respective flight services, starting with Bangkok in the initial stages, the airlines said on Friday (Dec 2).
Thai Airways will also codeshare SIA’s flight services to South Africa’s Cape Town and Johannesburg; Houston, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco and Seattle in the US; as well as Vancouver in Canada.
The Thai national carrier aims to do so by the first quarter of 2023, subject to regulatory approval.
The airlines will explore more codeshare agreements to improve their air connectivity in Thailand and Singapore, along with points in Europe, India and south-west Pacific routes. Both carriers are members of the Star Alliance, the world’s largest airline alliance.
They will also explore “wide-ranging commercial” collaborations to provide customers with more options, value and greater benefits, according to the joint statement.
To date, SIA has 33 codeshare partners and access to over 200 destinations. Its partners include Air New Zealand, All Nippon Airways, Garuda Indonesia, Lufthansa, Malaysia Airlines, Scandinavian Airlines, United Airlines, Virgin Australia and Vistara.
