Icelandair and Turkish Airlines Ink Codeshare Agreement
This weekend, Icelandair and Turkish Airlines signed a codeshare agreement between the carriers that will offer passengers connections through their respective hubs.
Turkish passengers flying into Keflavik can now connect through Icelandair’s hub and continue to destinations in North America. For passengers on Icelandair to Istanbul, they can now continue onto Turkish Airlines’ network to the Middle East, Asia, and destinations further East.
The agreement between the two carriers was signed at the International Air Transport Association (IATA) annual meeting in Istanbul, Turkey.
This also means passengers from either airline can check bags to their final destination on the other airline and purchase fares on one ticket.
Turkish Airlines CEO, Bilal Ekşi, did have something to say about this new agreement; “We are very glad to sign this codeshare agreement with Icelandair. With this agreement, we aim to enhance the travel options offered to our passengers through our networks.”
Bogi Nils Bogason, CEO of Icelandair also shared some words on the new-found agreement in a press release; “Our strategy is to partner with airlines that allow us to open new and exciting opportunities for our passengers while working with partners who focus on like-minded customer service expectations. With the new agreement, the world will be better connected and allow us to better serve our global passengers. We look forward to welcoming Turkish Airlines aboard.”
