SINGAPORE Airlines and Malaysia Airlines are taking their relationship to the next level, signing a groundbreaking new commercial agreement which includes revenue sharing on flights between Singapore and Malaysia.
The new joint business, which is still subject to regulatory approval, also proposes the alignment of corporate programs, the development of joint fare products and airpasses, as well as tie-ups between loyalty programs.
Codeshare destinations will also expand, with the deal including SIA subsidiaries SilkAir and Scoot as well as Malaysia Airlines’ sister carrier Firefly.
