In a bid to provide extra convenience and comfort to customers, Singapore Airlines (SIA) and SilkAir signed a new codeshare agreement with the group's low-cost subsidiary Scoot.
The codeshare agreement will focus on flights that are served by Scoot between Singapore and more than 30 destinations, starting with Athens, Clark, Gold Coast, Hat Yai, Ipoh, Krabi, Kuching and Palembang.
The new agreement will enable SIA and SilkAir customers to travel on single-ticket itineraries to these codeshare destinations, which means that their boarding passes and baggage tags will be issued up to their final destination at the first point of check-in, the company said in a statement.
Scoot is a budget airline of the Singapore Airlines Group and currently operates to more than 20 destinations across Asia and Australia.
For their flights on Scoot, SIA and SilkAir passengers will be offered checked baggage allowance as well as a complimentary meal and beverage for flights over four hours.
Shares in Singapore Airlines were down 0.21 percent at S$10.46 on the SGX. The stock has risen 9 percent over an year.
