Deal involves flights between Kuwait and Istanbul-Sabiha Gokcen airports
Turkish Airlines has signed a code-sharing agreement with Kuwait Airways.
Kuwait Airways currently operates seven weekly flights with 330/320/777 fleets to Istanbul and seven weekly flights to Sabiha Gokcen Airport. In turn, Turkish Airlines operates 28 flights with 320/738/330 fleets from Istanbul, and 14 flights with 320/738 fleets from Sabiha Gokcen.
The agreement will allow both carriers to reach new destinations via their respective networks.
Yousef Al-Jassem Al-Saqer, chairman of Kuwait Airways said: “The new codeshare partnership will give customers the simplicity of purchasing connecting flights on both airlines using one reservation, and a seamless ticketing, check-in, boarding and baggage check experience during the entire journey.”
The two airlines have enjoyed a commercial relationship since 1991. This was strengthened in May this year with the signing of a renewed ‘Special Prorate Agreement’.
The Bilateral Codeshare Partnership will start from August 1.
