Garuda Indonesia and Singapore Airlines considering Joint Venture to deepen commercial partnership

Garuda Indonesia and Singapore Airlines plan to deepen the cooperation between the two airlines through a joint venture. If approved by regulators, this joint venture will increase passenger capacity between Singapore and Indonesia and offer travellers more options between the two countries. It will cover routes between Singapore and Denpasar, Jakarta and Surabaya.

The carriers will also explore the implementation of new initiatives, including joint fare products and an alignment of corporate programmes to enhance the value proposition to customers.

This expands on the Memorandum of Understanding signed by both airlines in November 2021. Both airlines first started codesharing in 2010 on flights between Singapore and Denpasar in Indonesia. In 2014, the agreement expanded to include flights between Singapore and Surabaya as well as on flights operated by SIA’s former regional subsidiary SilkAir. In 2019, they expanded the codeshare agreement to include flights between Singapore and Jakarta. In 2021, both carriers explored a wide-ranging commercial partnership that provides their customers with additional options and an enhanced travel experience.

The Memorandum of Understanding includes potential alignment of frequent flyer programmes, joint marketing activities, and initiatives to promote inbound tourism into Indonesia. Both carriers are also committed to finding new growth opportunities in the air freight segment and cooperation in maintenance, repair and overhaul activities. Garuda has also expanded its codeshares with SIA and is codesharing on SIA’s services to London, Mumbai and Johannesburg.
