Vistara announces codeshare with Singapore Airlines and Silkair

Singapore Airlines (SIA) and regional subsidiary SilkAir have signed an agreement to codeshare on Indian domestic flights operated by Vistara, with effect from today.

“Under the agreement, SIA will add its ‘SQ’ designator code to Vistara-operated flights beyond Mumbai and New Delhi to 10 destinations within India. SilkAir will add its ‘MI’ designator code to Vistara-operated flights beyond Bengaluru and Kolkata to six destinations within India,” said the airlines.

Four new destinations will be added to the SIA Group’s India network as a result of the codeshare agreement: Bhubaneswar, Goa, Guwahati and Port Blair.

“As we continuously work towards eventually becoming a globally renowned airline, codeshare partnerships will play a very important role in helping us get closer to realizing that aspiration. Customers booked on any of the classes on Singapore Airlines and SilkAir will find an equally world-class experience when they travel within India, given Vistara’s service and operational excellence,” Phee Teik Yeoh, Chief Executive Officer, Vistara was quoted in the release.
