Turkish Airlines and flybmi has penned a new codeshare agreement that introduces Istanbul as a destination for flybmi and offers Turkish Airlines’ passengers the benefits of flying on eight of flybmi’s European routes including Brussels to Newcastle and East Midlands; Norrköping and Saarbrücken to Munich; Oslo to Aberdeen and Hamburg; Dusseldorf and Paris to Bristol.
In return, flybmi customers will be able to enjoy flying on routes from the UK and Ireland to Istanbul from Oct. 1. The partnership will allow business and leisure travellers to book via flybmi.com and enjoy travel from Manchester, London-Heathrow and Dublin to the world-renowned Turkish metropole.
Furthermore, the codeshare will open up routes within Europe for flybmi, as passengers will be able to fly on from Istanbul to Brussels, Paris, Dusseldorf, Hamburg and Oslo as part of the agreement.
The strategic move strengthens both airlines’ network presence throughout Europe with each enjoying significant benefits for both inbound and outbound travel.
