SilkAir, Austrian Airlines and Swiss Forms JV to Operate Key Routes and Expand Codeshare Ties

SilkAir, Austrian Airlines and Swiss, Some of the benefits of the agreement, such as the new codeshare services will be introduced in the coming months. Other elements of the agreement that require additional levels of regulatory approval will be implemented through 2016. Flights between Singapore, and both Frankfurt and Munich are to be operated under revenue-sharing arrangements. New SIA-operated flights between Singapore and Dsseldorf, which are to be launched in July 2016, will also be covered under the agreement. According to the JV, the two airline groups also plan to co-operate in key markets in Europe, Southeast Asia and Australia to provide customers more convenient connections between route networks by offering joint fare promotions, aligning corporate programs and exploring improvements to existing frequent-flyer programs. The expanded codeshare ties will provide SIA passengers with convenient passage to and from points in Austria, Belgium, Germany and Switzerland, via the transfer hubs of Frankfurt, Munich and Zurich, with more than 20 new codeshare routes. Lufthansa and Swiss will in turn codeshare with SIA and SilkAir on more routes in Southeast Asia and the Southwest Pacific. The codeshare co-operation is expected to be expanded further in future.
