TG And SQ Sign MOU To Forge Strategic Partnership

THAI AND SINGAPORE AIRLINES SIGN MOUMr Suvadhana Sibunruang, THAI Acting Chief Executive Officer, said: “THAI and Singapore Airlines have shared a long-term relationship, and I am glad that this cooperation between the two airlines will certainly cater for the demand of travellers between Thailand, Singapore, and beyond”. This is a win-win opportunity to support our respective hubs’ growth and enhance our customers’ options and service offerings.

Additional codeshare arrangements to points in both airlines’ networks will be explored to support increased air connectivity to Thailand and Singapore and points in Europe, India, and South West Pacific routes. This will result in the airlines progressively code sharing more extensively on each other’s services and exploring wide-ranging commercial collaboration that provides their customers with more options and value, as well as more significant benefits and an enhanced travel experience. The codeshare arrangements will significantly benefit our customers in many service areas, including the frequent flyer programme, customer experiences, lounge access, and airport ground services.

Mr Goh Choon Phong, Chief Executive Officer of Singapore Airlines, said: “SIA and THAI have had a close relationship for many years, which we aim to strengthen through this comprehensive agreement”. THAI will also codeshare on SIA’s flight services to Cape Town and Johannesburg in South Africa; Houston, Los Angeles, New York (John F. Kennedy International Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport), San Francisco, and Seattle in the United States of America; as well as Vancouver in Canada, by the first quarter of 2023, subject to regulatory approval.

The collaboration strengthens the airlines’ networks as members of Star Alliance.” In the initial phase, THAI and SIA will codeshare each other’s flight services between Singapore and Bangkok.

Thai Airways International Public Company Limited (THAI) and Singapore Airlines (SIA) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to form a new strategic partnership.

Both airlines have a loyal customer base and extensive operations within South East Asia and worldwide. It will also enable the expansion of THAI’s network to more service points in the United States, Canada, South Africa, Europe, India, and South West Pacific routes.
