Singapore : Singapore Airlines (SIA) and Malaysia Airlines Berhad (MAB) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) aimed at significantly stepping up co-operative ties.

Under the terms of the MoU, the two airline groups will explore a wide-ranging strategic partnership to build on their existing codeshare agreement that covers flights between Singapore and Malaysia.

Enhanced ties could include a significant expansion of codeshare flights beyond Singa-pore- Malaysia routes, as well as enhancements on the frequent flyer programme front.

Other potential co-operation could involve cargo as well as MRO services.

A formal agreement is intended to be finalised in the coming months and will also include SIA subsidiaries SilkAir and Scoot, as well as Firefly, the sister airline of MAB.
