Singapore Airlines (SIA) and Silk Air have signed a new codeshare agreement with Air China.
Under the agreement, Singapore Airlines will add its SQ designator code to Air China-operated flights between Singapore and Beijing, while Silk Air will add its MI code to Air China flights between Singapore and Chengdu.
Reciprocally, Air China will add its CA code to selected SIA and Silk Air flights to Beijing and Chengdu.
Silk Air vice president, commercial, Ryan Pua said that the partnership with Air China “will enable us to jointly offer enhanced connections, benefiting customers who now have greater flexibility in their travel to and from China.”
The new agreement enhances existing codeshare partnerships between the Singaporean carriers and Air China's subsidiary, Shenzhen Airlines, for flights between Singapore and Shenzhen.
