Singapore Airlines (SIA) has expanded its codeshare agreement with Ethiopian Airlines.

From 3 December 2013, the two Star Alliance partners will join forces on Ethiopian’s new service from Addis Ababa to Singapore, via Bangkok.

SIA will place its ‘SQ’ code on this route, plus the African carrier’s regional flights to Pointe Noire in the Republic of the Congo, Ghana’s capital Accra, the Kenyan cities of Mombasa and Nairobi, Kigali in Rwanda, Dar es Salaam in Tanzania and Entebbe in Uganda.

In return, Ethiopian will place its ‘ET’ code on SIA’s flights from Singapore to the Australian cities of Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.

The latest deal marks an expansion of the existing codeshare partnership between SIA and Ethiopian, which currently includes flights from Addis Ababa and Singapore to Dubai, Delhi and Bangkok.
