Singapore Airlines, SilkAir and Fiji Airways recently signed a codeshare agreement that will provide more convenient connections for customers travelling to Fiji from 10 destinations in Asia, including Thailand, and Europe through the Singapore hub.



Under the agreement, Singapore Airlines and SilkAir customers can access Fiji Airways’ non-stop flights between Singapore and Nadi. The island’s airline launched a third weekly seasonal service last month. Passengers can also travel on codeshare flights between Nadi and three domestic destinations, including the Fijian capital Suva, Labasa and Savusavu.

In turn, Fiji Airways customers will be able to access Singapore Airlines and SilkAir-operated flights to destinations in Thailand, Malaysia, China, Germany, Japan, South Korea and the United Kingdom.

Tan Kai Ping, senior vice president, Marketing Planning Singapore Airlines said: “We are delighted with the new agreement with Fiji Airways, which will add this beautiful island destination to the Singapore Airlines and SilkAir codeshare network. This is another example of how we are continuously looking to expand our reach to provide our customers with more travel options.”

Andre Viljoen, Fiji Airways’ managing director and chief executive echoed the sentiment, adding: “We’re pleased to sign this codeshare agreement with Singapore Airlines and SilkAir, which enhances the airline group’s impressive global distribution network and significantly grows our footprint across Asia and Europe, with some of these cities appearing on the Fiji Airways network for the very first time.

“We are confident that this codeshare agreement will allow more travellers from Thailand and around the world to experience the beauty of Fiji and the wider South Pacific region.” 

The codeshare flights are subject to regulatory approvals. Tickets will be progressively made available for sale through the various booking channels following the approvals.
