The SIA Group network has signed a new codeshare agreement with the Group’s low-cost subsidiary Scoot, with SIA progressively adding its ‘SQ’ and SilkAir adding its ‘MI’ designator codes to Scoot-operated flights between Singapore and more than 30 destinations.
The codeshare arrangements will begin with Scoot flights serving Athens, Clark, Gold Coast, Hat Yai, Ipoh, Krabi, Kuching and Palembang. The new agreement will enable SIA and SilkAir customers to travel on single-ticket itineraries to these codeshare destinations, which means that their boarding passes and baggage tags will be issued up to their final destination at the first point of check-in.
In addition to through check-in service, SIA and SilkAir customers will be offered Scoot’s FlyBagEat privileges – which include checked baggage allowance, complimentary meal and beverage as well as blanket for flights above four hours. SIA and SilkAir customers will also be offered the flexibility to select seats on Scoot flights online through the SIA and SilkAir websites when booking their tickets, for a fee, in accordance with Scoot’s terms and conditions.
The codeshare flights are subject to regulatory approvals. Tickets will be progressively made available through the various booking channels.
