Turkish Airlines and Air Serbia Further Strengthen Cooperation
Turkish Airlines and Air Serbia have announced an additional enhancement of their commercial cooperation with a new MoU signed during the 78th IATA Annual General Meeting in Doha.
Turkish Airlines and Air Serbia will further explore the ways of deeper commercial cooperation, possibly leading to Joint Venture, which will enable the two airlines offer more competitive and more affordable flights between Türkiye and Serbia, improve the quality of services currently offered, as well as expand the offer and benefits for all passengers.
As a part of this expansion of cooperation, starting from July, Air Serbia will introduce additional flights on the Belgrade-Istanbul route, growing into 10 flights per week between Belgrade and Istanbul, while Turkish Airlines will allocate wide-body aircraft to this route twice a week.
Within the scope of agreed MOU, both parties will negotiate to boost existing cooperation in terms of codeshare, cargo and Frequent Flyer Program (FFP) while developing cooperation alternatives on passenger lounges in their networks.
During their cooperation so far, the two companies have adopted and upgraded multiple times code-share agreements for flights to destinations within the networks of Turkish Airlines and Air Serbia.
Joint flights offer quick and practical connections for passengers travelling out of Istanbul to Belgrade and onward, as well as for passengers travelling from the Serbian capital to Istanbul and onward.
In addition to that, Air Serbia added its JU code to flights of AnadoluJet, a subsidiary of Turkish Airlines, between Turkish capital Ankara and Belgrade, the capital of Serbia.
At the same time, Turkish Airlines added its TK code to Air Serbia flights between Niš and Istanbul, as well as between Kraljevo and Istanbul, thus offering passengers access to the extensive global network of Turkish Airlines.
