SINGAPORE Airlines (SIA) has resumed the sale of Virgin Australia codeshare flights to a host of destinations on SIA’s global network, in a move to return the carrier’s partnership to pre-pandemic operations.

Customers will be able to book directly on virginaustalia.com for travel between Australia, Asia, Africa, Europe and beyond, SIA and Virgin Australia said in a joint release on Tuesday (Nov 8).

Virgin Australia will codeshare on 42 destinations covering 23 countries on the SIA network, including Ho Chi Minh City, Seoul, Paris and London.

SIA continues to offer codeshare flights on 64 routes covering 31 destinations on Virgin Australia’s domestic and international network, including the addition of Queenstown in New Zealand.

The two carriers said they will continue to work closely to expand codeshare flights to more destinations across the SIA network in the coming weeks, subject to regulatory approval.

The pair formed their strategic partnership in 2011, with the agreement extended for a further five years in 2022.
