2-Nov-2012 8:52 AM

Singapore Airlines announced (01-Nov-2012) plans to increase Singapore-Copenhagen frequency from three to five times weekly from 31-Mar-2013 following final regulatory approval from the Competition Commission of Singapore (CCS) for a JV with SAS Scandinavian Airlines - see Route Changes Table for more information. SAS, which commenced codesharing with Singapore Airlines in Dec-2010, will codeshare on the additional frequencies. This is in addition to the airlines' existing codesharing agreement which sees Singapore Airlines place its code on SAS-operated services from Copenhagen to Helsinki, Oslo and Stockholm. SAS also codeshares on selected Singapore Airlines' Singapore-Bangkok Suvarnabhumi services. The airlines are discussing an expansion to their codeshare ties and are exploring new services between Singapore and Scandinavia. Singapore Airlines EVP commercial Mak Swee Wah said, "We are very pleased to announce an increase in frequency to Copenhagen now that regulatory approvals have been obtained for our wide-ranging partnership with SAS. We look forward to further building on our ties with SAS to provide more travel choices for our customers." [more - original PR]
