SIA and Japanese airline ANA ink JV deal

The team-up will focus on codeshare flights, mileage programmes and lounge access.

Singapore Airlines (SIA) and Japan’s All Nippon Airways (ANA) signed a joint venture framework agreement that aims to improve flight connectivity between the two carriers and access to a wider network.

This would also allow ANA and SIA to further strengthen their cooperation on services between Singapore and Japan, including key markets Australia, India, Indonesia, and Malaysia.

Both airline groups would also be able to jointly offer customers more seamless access to flights in their respective route networks, a broad range of joint fare products, tie-ups between frequent flyer programmes and aligned corporate programmes to strengthen their proposition to corporate clients.

This deal will focus on codeshare flights, mileage programmes, lounge access, and coordination on check-in baggage and connecting flights.

If authorised, SIA will become the third airline joint venture partner for ANA, following its partnership with United Airlines in 2011 and Lufthansa Group in 2012. SIA has joint ventures with Air New Zealand, Lufthansa Group and SAS.

The airline also mentioned that they are planning to form a JV with Malaysia Airlines Berhad.
