Singapore Airlines and Ethiopian Airlines will extend their codesharing agreement from June as Ethiopian introduces direct flights to Singapore.

Singapore Airlines passengers will get improved access to the African carrier’s regional destinations under the expanded agreement. Ethiopian’s passengers will be able to travel on Singapore’s Asian and South Pacific flights under ET flight numbers.

Singapore Air’s Tan Kai Ping said the “expansion of our important partnership is in line with our ongoing effort to continuously expand our network reach and to offer customers more travel options.”

Ethiopian’s Girma Shiferaw said the agreement will “play a critical role in enhancing investment, trade and tourism ties between a rising Africa, and a highly developed, innovative, and business-friendly Singapore.”

The airlines first began codesharing on each other’s flights to and from Dubai in 2011.
