The two Star Alliance member airlines announced that starting April 26, customers of both carriers will be able to enjoy codeshare flights to 19 new destinations on United's and Singapore Airlines' combined network.

As part of the agreement, United's customers will be able to connect to nine new destinations in Singapore Airlines' network. Among the destinations are seven in Southeast Asia including Bandar Seri Begawan, Siem Reap, Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Denpasar (Bali), and Surabaya. The other two destinations are Perth and Male.

In return, Singapore Airlines' customers will be able to make connections on United's flights from Los Angeles to 10 destinations including Austin, Baltimore, Boise, Cleveland, Denver, Honolulu, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Reno, and Sacramento. The added destinations will complement existing connections on United from Houston to Atlanta, Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, New Orleans, Orlando, and Tampa.

“United continues to provide critical links to Asia and we are the only US airline flying direct to Singapore from the US, with our nonstop San Francisco – Singapore flight,” said Patrick Quayle, Senior Vice President of International Network and Alliances at United. “We are excited to further expand our partnership with Singapore Airlines and provide our customers greater convenience and access to world-class destinations in the region.”

“SIA's partnership with United is an integral part of our growth strategy,” said JoAnn Tan, Senior Vice President Marketing Planning, Singapore Airlines. “The expansion of the codeshare arrangement will provide both SIA and United customers with a greater array of choices and connections, as well as seamless transfers for their business or leisure travel. This will also help to strengthen the deep and long-standing ties between Singapore and the US.”
