Turkish Airlines and Singapore Airlines to Expand Codeshare

Singapore Airlines and Turkish Airlines have agreed a major expansion of codeshare ties, covering destinations beyond Istanbul and Singapore.

The Star Alliance partners have been codesharing on each other’s flights on the route Istanbul-Singapore – and vice versa – since February 2009. Singapore Airlines currently operates four weekly flights on the route, increasing frequency on a seasonal basis to six times per week to meet growth in demand, effective from 30th May 2014.

Turkish Airlines operates seven weekly flights between Istanbul and Singapore (and vice versa), which is one of the strategic gateways in line with its development plans to South East Asia and Southwest Pacific.

Under the expansion of the agreement, Singapore Airlines will add its ‘SQ’ designator code to Turkish Airlines-operated flights beyond Istanbul to destinations within Turkey, as well as to points in Africa, Europe, the Middle East and North America, benefiting from the global network of Turkish Airlines.

On a reciprocal basis, Turkish Airlines will add its ‘TK’ designator code to Singapore Airlines-operated flights beyond Singapore to points in South East Asia and the Southwest Pacific benefiting from the global network of Singapore Airlines.

The expanded codeshare ties are expected to take effect from 1st May 2014, subject to regulatory approvals.
