United Airlines and Singapore Airlines (SIA1) (SINGY), both Star Alliance members, have announced an expansion to their codeshare agreement, providing customers of both airlines options to travel to more cities in the USA, South East Asia, and other destinations in the Asia-Pacific region.
Seven of these are in the Southeast Asian region: Brunei’s capital Bandar Seri Begawan, Siem Reap in Cambodia, Kuala Lumpur and Penang in Malaysia, and Denpasar (Bali), Jakarta and Surabaya in Indonesia. They may also connect to Perth in Australia, as well as Male in the Maldives with the Singapore Airlines (SIA1) (SINGY) group.
In turn, Singapore Airlines (SIA1) (SINGY) customers may connect on United’s flights out of Los Angeles to 10 new codeshare destinations in the US: Austin, Baltimore, Boise, Cleveland, Denver, Honolulu, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Reno, and Sacramento. This complements the existing connections available on United’s network 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,” senior vice president of international network and alliances at United Patrick Quayle said in a statement.
