Singapore Airlines (SIA) and Vistara, a joint venture between Tata Sons and SIA, have signed a commercial cooperation framework agreement, enabling them to further strengthen their existing partnership and enhance customer services across various segments— capacity planning, sales, marketing, joint fare products, passenger services, and operations.
The agreement, which is subject to regulatory approval in Singapore, is an extension of a codeshare partnership that came into effect in 2017.
The agreement aims to achieve further synergies on services between Singapore and India, as well as in the key regions of southeast Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.
JoAnn Tan, acting senior vice president marketing planning, Singapore Airlines, said:
“By bolstering our partnership, Singapore Airlines and Vistara are able to work together to provide additional options for our customers. It also reflects the importance of the Indian market to Singapore Airlines, as well as our commitment to grow our network in the coming years.”
Leslie Thng, chief executive officer, Vistara said:
“We are thrilled to further strengthen our partnership with Singapore Airlines. The intent is reflective of our deep-rooted commitment to providing our customers with the finest and the most convenient way to fly across the world with the consistency of a five-star travel experience.
“This is in line with our long-term growth plan of expanding Vistara’s global presence and presenting India’s best airline to the world.”
