Virgin Australia is adding almost 20 cities to its route map through additional partner flights with Singapore Airlines and SQ's regional offshoot SilkAir.
Europe and India are in the codeshare crosshairs as Virgin continues to expand the ‘virtual network’ model championed by Virgin Australia chief John Borghetti.
A Virgin Australia spokesperson tells Australian Business Traveller the flights are "part of the rolling out of our codeshare expansion under our alliance with Singapore Airlines."
The new roster includes Amsterdam, Bangalore, Copenhagen, Delhi, Jakarta, London, Munich, Manchester, Paris and Zurich.
However, flights to European destinations are restricted to Virgin Australia passengers travelling from Perth and Darwin. That's to avoid duplicating any European services offered by Virgin partner and stakeholder Etihad, which has no flights from either of those two Australian cities.
Virgin Australia's codeshare flights operated by Silk Air fly from Singapore to Bangalore, Chennai, Coimbatore, Hyderabad, Kochi, Kolkata and Thiruvananthapuram.
