Star Alliance members United Airlines and Singapore Airlines are expanding their codeshare agreement to 19 more cities in the United States, South East Asia and other destinations in the Asia Pacific region.
“United continues to provide critical links to Asia and we are the only US airline flying direct to Singapore from the US, with our nonstop San Francisco – Singapore flight. We are excited to further expand our partnership with Singapore Airlines and provide our customers greater convenience and access to world-class destinations in the region.”Patrick Quayle, Senior Vice President of International Network and Alliances at United
From 26 April 2022, United’s customers will be able to connect to nine new codeshare destinations in the SIA Group network. Seven points are in South East Asia – Bandar Seri Begawan, Siem Reap, Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Denpasar (Bali), Jakarta and Surabaya, Perth and Male in the Maldives.
SIA customers may also connect on United’s flights out of Los Angeles to 10 new codeshare destinations in the US including Austin, Baltimore, Boise, Cleveland, Denver, Honolulu, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Reno and Sacramento. This is in addition to existing connections from Houston to Atlanta, Austin, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, New Orleans, Orlando and Tampa.
This announcement comes amid growing demand for international air travel as more countries around the world ease border restrictions. As travel resumes, customers can look forward to enjoying Singapore Airlines’ and United Airlines’ new codeshare flights, award-winning service, and the ability to redeem and earn points and miles while flying on both carriers.
Subject to regulatory approvals, the codeshare flights will be progressively made available for sale through the airlines’ respective booking channels.
“SIA’s partnership with United is an integral part of our growth strategy. The expansion of the codeshare arrangement will provide both SIA and United customers with a greater array of choices and connections, as well as seamless transfers for their business or leisure travel. This will also help to strengthen the deep and long-standing ties between Singapore and the US.”JoAnn Tan, Senior Vice President Marketing Planning, Singapore Airlines
