SIA and SilkAir to codeshare Scoot flights

The two will add their 'SQ' and 'M1' codes to over 30 Scoot flights.

Singapore Airlines (SIA) and SilkAir will codeshare the flights of SIA Group's subsidiary Scoot.

According to a press release, this will expand SIA and SilkAir's destinations to 130.

SIA will progressively add its ‘SQ’ designator code while SilkAir will add its ‘MI’ code to Scoot-operated flights between Singapore and more than 30 destinations served only by Scoot within the SIA Group.

The codeshare arrangements will begin with Scoot flights serving Athens, Clark, Gold Coast, Hat Yai, Ipoh, Krabi, Kuching and Palembang.

The new agreement will enable SIA and SilkAir customers to travel on single-ticket itineraries to these codeshare destinations, which means that their boarding passes and baggage tags will be issued up to their final destination at the first point of check-in.

Moreover, SIA and SilkAir customers will be offered Scoot’s FlyBagEat privileges, which includes checked baggage allowance, complimentary meal and beverage, as well as a blanket for flights above four hours.

SIA and SilkAir customers will also be offered the flexibility to select seats on Scoot flights online through the SIA and SilkAir websites when booking their tickets, for a fee.
