United and Singapore Airlines Add 19 New Codeshare Destinations
Star Alliance members United Airlines and Singapore Airlines have announced an expansion of their codeshare agreement, opening up more opportunities for customers traveling to the US, South East Asia and other destinations in the Asia-Pacific region.
There are now 19 new codeshare flights, tapping Singapore Airlines’ and United Airlines’ networks. The announcement comes as demand for international air travel continues to grow as more countries around the world drop Covid-19 restrictions.
Beginning April 26, 2022, United’s customers can connect to nine new codeshare destinations in the SIA Group network. That includes Brunei’s capital Bandar Seri Begawan, Siem Reap in Cambodia, Kuala Lumpur and Penang in Malaysia, and Denpasar (Bali), Jakarta and Surabaya in Indonesia, Perth in Australia, as well as Male in the Maldives.
Singapore customers may connect on United’s flights out of Los Angeles to 10 new codeshare destinations in the US. These are Austin, Baltimore, Boise, Cleveland, Denver, Honolulu, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Reno and Sacramento. These are in addition to existing connections from Houston to Atlanta, Austin, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, New Orleans, Orlando and Tampa.
“United continues to provide critical links to Asia and we are the only US airline flying direct to Singapore from the US, with our nonstop San Francisco – Singapore flight,” said Patrick Quayle, Senior Vice President of International Network and Alliances at United.
“The expansion of the codeshare arrangement will provide both SIA and United customers with a greater array of choices and connections,” said JoAnn Tan, Senior Vice President Marketing Planning, Singapore Airlines.
