Singapore Airlines has signed an agreement to codeshare on flights operated by Alaska Airlines, in a move that will expand SIA’s footprint in the important North American market. Subject to regulatory approvals, the agreement will take effect on September 27, 2017.
Under the agreement, Singapore Airlines will add its ‘SQ’ designator code to Alaska Airlines-operated flights on routes serving 18 destinations1 within the US and to Mexico. Existing codeshare flights operated by Virgin America on routes serving 19 destinations2 within the US will also be included under the new agreement. Virgin America was acquired by Alaska Air Group in 2016.
