PAL, Singapore Airlines enter codeshare partnership


Philippine Airlines (PAL) and Singapore Airlines (SIA) have forged a new codeshare partnership, expanding flight options for passengers traveling between the Philippines and Singapore, as well as connecting them to a wider network of domestic and international destinations.

Effective in the fourth quarter of 2023, the codeshare agreement will initially cover SIA and PAL flights between Singapore and Manila. SIA will also codeshare on PAL’s flights from Manila to 27 domestic destinations within the Philippines, while PAL will codeshare on SIA’s flights to six European cities: Copenhagen, Frankfurt, Milan, Paris, Rome, and Zurich.

This partnership marks a significant milestone for PAL, as it will provide the airline with access to the Danish capital and the Italian commercial hub for the first time. Additionally, PAL will re-establish its presence in Frankfurt, Paris, Rome, and Zurich, which it served in the 1980s and 1990s.

The two airlines plan to further expand their codeshare agreement to include SIA’s flights to other European destinations, as well as to cities in Australia, India, New Zealand, and South Africa.

“We are delighted to partner with Singapore Airlines, a fellow ASEAN airline with a strong reputation for excellence,” said Captain Stanley K. Ng, President and Chief Operating Officer of Philippine Airlines. “This partnership will provide our passengers with more travel options and enhance connectivity between the Philippines and Singapore, as well as to key destinations around the world.”

“This agreement is a testament to our commitment to strengthening our network and providing our customers with more choice,” said Mr. Goh Choon Phong, Chief Executive Officer of Singapore Airlines. “We believe that this partnership will be mutually beneficial for both airlines and will further strengthen our presence in the Southeast Asian region.”

The codeshare agreement will be rolled out progressively across PAL and SIA sales channels, including philippineairlines.com and singaporeair.com, as well as travel agents over the coming weeks.
