8 February 2012 - Singapore Airlines is pleased to announce the start of codesharing on Australian domestic flights operated by alliance partner Virgin Australia. This will provide customers travelling to and from Australia with more travel options and seamless connections.

 

Singapore Airlines currently serves five Australian cities, namely Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney. 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.
