With the “SQ” designator code on Virgin Australia-operated flights, 20 more cities have been added to SIA’s codeshare network.

Tickets for the codeshare flights are now open for sale.

Singapore Airlines executive vice president commercial, Mak Swee Wah, said: “Our customers across the globe can now enjoy seamless access to more parts of Australia through Virgin Australia’s extensive domestic network.

“This opens up a wide range of itineraries to both business and leisure travellers alike, with the full-service convenience that customers expect of Singapore Airlines.”
