Singapore Airlines (SIA) has signed a codeshare agreement with Greek-carrier Aegean Airlines.
The agreement sees SIA adding its code to flights operated by Aegean from Frankfurt, London, Milan and Munich to the Greek capital of Athens.
An SIA spokesperson said that, through the codeshare, the airline was seeking to re-establish a connection with Athens, following the suspension of its own service to the city earlier this year.
SIA announced in May that it would cease its twice-weekly service to Athens from October 26 because of weak demand for the route.
The airline will also codeshare on flights from Frankfurt and Munich serving Thessaloniki, Greece’s second largest city.
The spokesperson said that Aegean Airlines, being another member of Star Alliance, was a natural partner for SIA.
Pending regulatory approval, the agreement will also see Aegean adding its code to flights operated by SIA between Frankfurt, Munich, Milan and Singapore.
“Thanks to this new partnership we can now offer Greek passengers a great travel solution to Singapore and via Singapore to all countries in Southeast Asia and Australia,” said Tassos Raftopoulos, Aegean Airlines’ planning and alliances director.
