On Friday (December 2, 2022), Singapore Airlines (SIA) announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Thai Airways International to forge a new strategic partnership. Under the agreement, the airlines will progressively codeshare, and explore wide-ranging commercial cooperation that will provide guests more value and options, as well as greater benefits and an elevated travel experience. Initially, the airlines will codeshare on each other’s flights between Singapore and Bangkok. THAI will also codeshare on SIA-operated flights to Cape Town and Johannesburg (South Africa), as well as to Houston, Los Angeles New York-JFK/EWR, San Francisco and Seattle (U.S.), and Vancouver, Canada from Q1 2023 (pending regulatory approval).


In Friday’s announcement, Singapore Airlines’ Chief executive Officer, Mr. Goh Choon Phong, said,


“SIA and THAI have had a close relationship for many years, which we aim to strengthen through this comprehensive agreement. Both airlines have a loyal customer base, as well as extensive operations within South East Asia and around the world. This is a win-win opportunity to support the growth of our respective hubs and enhance the options and service offerings for our customers.”


Also commenting on the new commercial partnership, THAI’s Acting Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Suvadhana Sibunruang, said,

“THAI and Singapore Airlines have shared a long-term relationship, and I am glad that this cooperation between the two airlines will certainly cater for the demand of travellers between Thailand, Singapore, and beyond. It will also enable the expansion of THAI’s network to more service points in the United States, Canada, South Africa, Europe, India, and South West Pacific routes. The codeshare arrangements will greatly benefit our customers in a range of service areas including the frequent flyer programme, customer experiences, lounge access, and airport ground services. The collaboration strengthens both the airlines’ networks as members of Star Alliance.”


SIA and THAI plan on codesharing on additional routes in both Airlines’ networks in the future to include enhanced connectivity to Thailand and Singapore, as well as across points in Europe, India and the South West Pacific.
