Singapore Airlines, AirNZ extend code-sharing alliance

Air New Zealand and Singapore Airlines have extended their alliance to include travel between Wellington and Singapore, the companies said.

Beginning September 21, Air New Zealand will be able to codeshare on Singapore Airlines´ new Wellington-Singapore service and Singapore Airlines on Air New Zealand´s domestic network beyond Wellington.

The two carriers first launched an alliance in early 2015, which included Singapore Airlines´ Singapore-Christchurch service and enabled Air New Zealand to resume operating the Auckland-Singapore route, delivering greater access to Singapore from New Zealand.

Air New Zealand said the launch of the alliance with Singapore Airlines delivered capacity growth of 15 percent in its first year helping to grow visitor arrivals benefiting our tourism industry but also provide convenient travel options to Singapore and markets beyond.

Air New Zealand Limited is the national airline of New Zealand. Based in Auckland, the airline operates scheduled passenger flights to 22 domestic and 29 international destinations in 16 countries around the Pacific rim and the United Kingdom.

Singapore Airlines Limited is the flag carrier of Singapore with its hub at Singapore Changi Airport.
