Icelandair, Turkish Airlines sign codeshare agreement 

ISTANBUL — A new codeshare agreement between Icelandair and Turkish Airlines should open up new options for air travellers in and out of Canada.

With the newly-signed agreement, the two airlines say they will provide seamless connections to their customers, and expand the number of destinations on both carriers’ networks.

Icelandair passengers in North America and Iceland can connect eastbound via Turkish Airlines’ network to Istanbul; and Turkish Airlines worldwide passengers such as Asia or the Middle East will be able to connect westbound via Icelandair’s network to Iceland and Canada.

The agreement was signed at IATA’s 79th annual AGM, taking place this week in Istanbul.

“We are happy to sign this codeshare agreement with Icelandair. With this agreement we aim to enhance the travel options offered to our passengers through our networks. We are also so pleased to know that this partnership with Icelandair will bring a remarkable benefit to both airlines from a commercial perspective,” said Turkish Airlines CEO Bilal Ekşi.

“We are thrilled to announce Turkish Airlines, the airline that flies to more countries in the world than any other, as our latest codeshare partner. Our strategy is to partner with airlines that focus on like-minded customer service and open new and exciting opportunities for our customers. With the new agreement, the two airlines’ networks will be better connected, greatly increasing possible flight connections for our customers,” said Icelandair CEO Bogi Nils Bogason.
