Agree­ment means seam­less trans­fers

Life & Style Weekend - - TRAVEL -

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.
