Singapore Airlines, Ethiopian Airlines sign codeshare deal

Singapore Airlines on Friday announced that its passengers will have the option of flying to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia's capital city, through a codeshare agreement with future Star Alliance partner Ethiopian Airlines, starting November 1, 2011.
Under the agreement, SIA will add its 'SQ' code to Ethiopian-operated flights operating daily between Dubai and Addis Ababa and Ethiopian Airlines will add its 'ET' code to seven SIA-operated flights per week between Singapore and Dubai.
SIA serves Dubai with 11 flights per week.
Ethiopian Airlines is currently working towards enabling Singapore Airlines' KrisFlyer members to accrue frequent flyer miles when travelling on Ethiopian's flights. Ethiopian's Sheba Miles members will also be able to accrue miles when travelling on SIA's flights.
