Singapore Airlines and Virgin Australia Seal the Deal

Singapore Airlines and Virgin Australia signed a landmark agreement to embark on a long-term alliance.

 

Through this new agreement, the two airlines will be able to conduct mutual codesharing on international and domestic flights, offer reciprocal frequent flyer programme benefits and lounge access to passengers, as well as have cooperative sales, marketing and distribution activities and coordinated schedules between Singapore, Australia, and beyond. Singapore Airlines Chief Executive Mr Goh Choon Phong was quoted in eTravel Blackboard Australia as having said that the partnership with Virgin represented a significant opportunity for the airline that would provide its passengers with a first-rate, integrated travel experience on an enlarged network.

 

The first stage of the agreement is set to take effect on 1 August 2011.
