Agreement means seamless transfers
AIR France and Singapore Airlines will offer their customers seamless transfers on their shared routes, with only one booking and a one-stop luggage check-in through to their final destination, after deciding to codeshare on each other’s flights.
Air France will add its ‘AF’ designator code to Singapore Airlines-operated flights beyond Singapore to Melbourne and Sydney, as well as on SilkAir-operated flights to Kuala Lumpur, Penang (Malaysia) and Phuket (Thailand).
On a reciprocal basis, Singapore Airlines will add its “SQ” designator code to Air France-operated flights beyond Paris-Charles de Gaulle to 10 destinations – Aberdeen, Bordeaux, Edinburgh, Lisbon, Lyon, Madrid, Marseille, Newcastle, Nice and Toulouse.
The agreement is intended to provide customers more options and seamless connectivity when travelling between Europe, south-east Asia and Australia. They will also examine the possibility for Air France-KLM’s Flying Blue and Singapore Airlines’ KrisFlyer members to earn and redeem miles when travelling on the codeshare flight segments.
The agreement is still subject to regulatory approvals.
