In a press release earlier this week, the Lufthansa Group announced the expansion of its collaboration with Singapore Airlines.

The new commercial joint venture which was concluded between the Lufthansa Group and Singapore Airlines in November 2015 is bearing its first fruit. Collaboration partners Lufthansa, Singapore Airlines (SIA) and Swiss International Air Lines (Swiss) are expanding their codeshare agreements. As a result, customers of all three airlines are now offered even more destinations and even more connections.

In addition to the Lufthansa Group’s Frankfurt hub, SIA’s expanded codeshare connections now offer customers more than 20 convenient codeshare routings via the Group’s Munich and Zurich hubs to and from various points in Austria, Belgium, Germany and Switzerland.

Lufthansa and Swiss, meanwhile, are adding the following new codeshare connections in Southeast Asia and the Southwest Pacific to their timetables:

Lufthansa from Frankfurt via Singapore now also to:

Indonesia:

Denpasar
Jakarta

Swiss from Zurich via Singapore now also to:

Australia:

Adelaide
Brisbane
Melbourne
Perth
Sydney

Indonesia:

Jakarta

Malaysia:

Kuala Lumpur

New Zealand:

Auckland
Christchurch

Travelers to these destinations can now fly Lufthansa from Frankfurt or Swiss from Zurich to Singapore and then change seamlessly onto their connecting Singapore Airlines flight with a Lufthansa/Swiss flight number. Any registered baggage checked-in in Germany or Switzerland will be checked right through to their final destination. And, as before, travelers can earn and redeem miles with the partner airline concerned under Miles & More and other Star Alliance frequent flyer programmes.
