Virgin Australia expands codeshare on Singapore Airlines to Milan and Rome03/06/2013
Virgin Australia today announced flights to Milan and Rome will be added to its codeshare agreement with Singapore Airlines from today, 3 June 2013.
The announcement follows recent regulatory approvals being granted allowing Virgin Australia to codeshare on flights into Italy.
Customers travelling on Virgin Australia’s network will be able to connect through Singapore on to Milan or Rome on the same ticket. Velocity Frequent Flyer members will also be able to earn points and status credits on these routes.
The codeshare flights will be operated by a two-class Boeing 777-200 aircraft between Singapore and Rome three times per week and a three-class Boeing 777-300ER between Singapore and Milan five times per week.
This is a continuation of the roll-out of Virgin Australia’s alliance with Singapore Airlines, which already includes 87 codeshare and interline destinations globally from all Singapore Airlines’ gateways in Australia. Virgin Australia will continue to work closely with Singapore Airlines to develop a network aligned with the needs of their customers.
Singapore Airlines currently operates flights from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide into Singapore, and SilkAir operates from Darwin to Singapore.
