Singapore Airlines will increase the frequency of services on the Singapore-Copenhagen route from 31 March 2013.

The carrier will operate five weekly flights between Singapore and Copenhagen, up from thrice weekly.

The service increase follows the Competition Commission of Singapore's approval for the joint venture between SIA and Scandinavian Airlines (SAS). The joint venture agreement involves the co-ordination of flight schedules and joint sales activities.

Star Alliance partner SAS will place its code on the Singapore-Copenhagen flights.

SIA has placed its code on SAS-operated flights beyond Copenhagen to Helsinki, Oslo and Stockholm, while SAS has been codesharing on SIA-operated services between Copenhagen and Singapore as well as on selected flights between Singapore and Bangkok.

The carriers are currently in talks for the expansion of their codeshare agreement. In addition, depending on the market conditions, a new route between Singapore and Scandinavia will also be explored.

"We are very pleased to announce an increase in frequency to Copenhagen now that regulatory approvals have been obtained for our wide-ranging partnership with SAS. We look forward to further building on our ties with SAS to provide more travel choices for our customers," says Mak Swee Wah, SIA's executive vice-president commercial.

Innovata Schedules show that the airline will be the sole operator on the route.
