Saudi Arabia’s newest national airline Riyadh Air and Singapore Airlines have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to establish a commercial partnership.

The agreement was made on the sidelines of the 80th International Air Transport Association (IATA) Annual General Meeting and World Transport Summit in Dubai.

According to the MoU, the carriers will develop interline connectivity on each other’s services, subject to regulatory approval, as well as codeshare arrangements and reciprocal benefits for their frequent flyer programme members.

The move will offer Riyadh Air’s customers access to Singapore Airline’s network in South East Asia and the South West Pacific region, and Singapore Airline’s customers greater access to the Middle East region through Riyadh Air’s network.
