Virgin Australia and Singapore Airlines link-up again

Long-time alliance partners Virgin Australia and Singapore Airlines have resumed the sale of Virgin Australia codeshare flights to destinations on Singapore Airlines’ global network.

Effective immediately, the announcement sees customers able to book directly on for onward travel between Australia, Asia, Africa, Europe, and beyond.

The move is the next step in returning the carrier’s partnership to pre-pandemic operations, following the resumption of redemption bookings and mileage/points conversion for KrisFlyer and Velocity members earlier this year, Virgin said in a statement.

Created in in 2011, the partnership allowed passengers to access a range of international and domestic destinations across both airlines’ networks.

Virgin Australia Group Chief Strategy and Transformation Officer, Alistair Hartley, said: “Singapore Airlines has been a valued partner of Virgin Australia for well over a decade and we are excited to resume the sale of codeshare flights.

“Customers are now able to search and book flights to a host of destinations, including to popular tourist destinations across Asia and beyond.

"Virgin Australia will codeshare on 42 destinations covering 23 countries on the Singapore Airlines network, including Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, Seoul in South Korea, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, and Paris in Europe, London in the United Kingdom, and Jakarta in Indonesia, as well as Singapore Airlines’ home base."

Singapore Airlines continues to offer codeshare flights on 64 routes covering 31 destinations on Virgin Australia’s domestic and international network, including the addition of Queenstown in New Zealand.

The two carriers will continue to work closely to expand codeshare flights to more destinations across the Singapore Airlines’ network in the coming weeks, subject to regulatory approval.
