Singapore Airlines Expands Codeshare Agreement with India’s Vistara

Singapore Airlines and regional subsidiary SilkAir have expanded their codeshare agreement with Vistara to cover international routes. Vistara launched international operations on Tuesday, 6 Aug 2019, with flights between Delhi and Singapore.

Vistara flights between Mumbai and Singapore are scheduled to commence today. Both routes will be operated with Boeing 737-800 aircraft.

SIA will add its ‘SQ’ designator code to Vistara’s new international flights, and both SIA and SilkAir will add nine new codeshare destinations within India on Vistara-operated flights to Chandigarh, Dibrugarh, Jammu, Leh, Pune, Raipur, Ranchi, Siliguri and Srinagar. With this expansion, SIA will codeshare on Vistara flights to more than 20 Indian destinations.

Vistara will add its ‘UK’ designator code to SIA and SilkAir-operated flights between Singapore and eight destinations in India -  Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Cochin, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai and New Delhi. As part of the arrangement, Vistara will codeshare on services to more than 40 destinations in the SIA and SilkAir network. These codeshares will be implemented in phases and are subject to regulatory approvals.

“Vistara found its first codeshare partners in Singapore Airlines and SilkAir, and now we are further expanding the agreement to international flights with them. We’re happy to deepen this strategic partnership which means a more seamless flying experience for travellers from India to destinations across Asia, Oceania and the United States. Our customers will enjoy world-class products and services whether flying from India to points abroad beyond Singapore or into and within India from the rest of the world. It helps Vistara get closer to its vision of becoming a global brand and we’re certain that our customers will find the benefits of this partnership delightful,” said Vistara’s Chief Strategy Officer, Mr. Vinod Kannan.

The codeshare flights will be progressively made available through SIA and Vistara booking channels once necessary regulatory approvals are obtained.

“Vistara is an important partner for SIA and SilkAir. This expansion of our codeshare agreement provides our customers with more travel options to and from India. We congratulate Vistara on the launch of its international services, and are proud to be Vistara’s first codeshare partner for its international flights,” said SIA Senior Vice President Marketing Planning, Mr. Tan Kai Ping.
