Longstanding alliance partners Virgin Australia and Singapore Airlines have resumed the sale of Virgin Australia codeshare flights to 42 destinations on SIA’s global network, including Ho Chi Minh City, Jakarta, and Seoul in Asia, as well as European cities like Amsterdam, Copenhagen, London, and Paris. Customers can once again search and book Singapore Airlines flights directly on virginaustralia.com.

The move is the next step in returning the carrier’s partnership to pre-pandemic operations, following the resumption of redemption bookings and mileage/Points conversion for KrisFlyer and Velocity members earlier this year. While miles and Points earn has remained unchanged throughout the pandemic, the announcement unlocks the full rewards and benefits of the partnership for customers as demand for international travel continues to improve.

JoAnn Tan, Singapore Airlines’ Senior Vice President for Marketing and Planning, said in a statement, ”The return of the VA code on SIA flights provides even more opportunities for Australians to seamlessly explore the world, no matter where they are based. As more countries across Asia remove travel restrictions, it also opens up Australia to travelers from these regions.”

Singapore Airlines continues to offer codeshare flights on 64 routes covering 31 destinations on Virgin Australia’s domestic and international network, including the addition of Queenstown in New Zealand. The two carriers will continue to work closely to expand codeshare flights to more destinations in the coming weeks, subject to regulatory approval. Virgin Australia and Singapore Airlines established their alliance partnership in 2011, with the agreement extended for a further five years in 2022.
