Singapore Airlines links with Star Alliance partner Aegean Airlines

From December Singapore Airlines customers will be able to fly to the Greek cities of Athens and Thessaloniki through a code-share agreement with Star Alliance partner Aegean Airlines.

Under the agreement, SIA 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 code-share on SIA-operated flights will commence once regulatory approvals have been obtained.

“This new code-share 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, Chin Yau Seng.

Tickets for the code-share flights are now open for sale, for travel from December 1st 2012.
