Vistara has signed a new agreement with Singapore Airlines (SIA) and Silkair to expand codesharing on international routes. The Tata-SIA airline’s international operations are set to commence on August 6 with the launch of the Delhi-Singapore services.
Expressing his views on this new agreement, Vinod Kannan, chief strategy officer, Vistara said, “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 are 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.”
As a part of this expansion, Singapore Airlines will place its SQ code on Vistara’s international flights. Additionally, Singapore Airlines and Silkair will add nine new codeshare destinations within India on Vistara-operated flights. Following this, Singapore Airlines will codeshare on Vistara flights to more than 20 destinations across India.
Likewise, Vistara will add its UK code on SIA and Silkair-operated flights between Singapore and eight Indian destinations. With this, the Indian full-service carrier will codeshare on services to more than 40 destinations on the SIA and Silkair network.
