The recently announced expansion of the codesharing agreement between Singapore Airlines (SIA) and the Lufthansa Group is expected to offer customers of both airlines greater benefits through enhanced connections and new codeshare destinations. The expanded joint venture agreement signed in November 2015 aims to deepen co-operation in key markets in Europe, Southeast Asia and Australia, subject to regulatory approvals.
Singapore Airlines customers will gain convenient access to over 20 new routes on Lufthansa- and Swiss-operated flights, to and from points in Austria, Belgium, Germany and Switzerland via the transfer hubs of Munich and Zurich including
• Via Munich: Berlin, Bremen, Brussels, Cologne, Dusseldorf, Geneva, Hamburg, Hanover, Nuremberg, Stuttgart, Vienna, Zurich
• Via Zurich: Berlin, Dresden, Dusseldorf, Graz, Hanover, Hamburg, Nuremburg, Stuttgart
Lufthansa and Swiss customers will gain access to routes serving destinations in Southeast Asia and the Southwest Pacific via codeshare travel on SIA-operated flights.
The new codeshare flights will be progressively made available through SIA’s various booking channels.
