Singapore approves Singapore Airlines- Virgin alliance

Singapore Airlines said on Thursday the Competition Commission of Singapore had approved its proposed alliance with Virgin Australia.
The alliance involves code-sharing on each other's flights, better flight schedules and connections, access to more airport lounges, as well as greater opportunities to earn and redeem frequent flyer miles, the Singapore flag carrier said.
Virgin had been looking for a partner in Asia after forming alliances and partnerships with Delta Air Lines, Etihad and Air New Zealand.
The alliance is aimed at connecting Singapore Airlines' international network with Virgin's routes within Australia and in the Pacific.
