As Vistara launched its first international flights, the carrier is expanding its codeshare partnership with Singapore Airlines pending government approval.
Under the expanded agreement, Singapore Airlines will add its SQ flight code on Vistara's new international flights including to/from Singapore and Mumbai and Delhi. The flight code will also be included on nine domestic routes that Vistara operates in India.
Vistara will add its UK flight code on Singapore Airlines' flights to and from Singapore. Among the new codeshare flights will be Singapore Airlines' flights between India and Singapore, as well as flights to 40 destinations.
“Vistara is an important partner for SIA and SilkAir. This expansion of our codeshare agreement provides our customers with more travel options to and from India. We congratulate Vistara on the launch of its international services, and are proud to be Vistara’s first codeshare partner for its international flights,” said Tan Kai Ping, senior vice president marketing planning for Singapore Airlines.
“Vistara found its first codeshare partners in Singapore Airlines and SilkAir, and now we are further expanding the agreement to international flights with them. We’re happy to deepen this strategic partnership which means a more seamless flying experience for travellers from India to destinations across Asia, Oceania and the United States," Vinod Kannan, chief strategy officer, Vistara.
