Posted 10 July 2019 · Add Comment

Turkish Airlines and Kuwait Airways have signed a new strategic partnership, which will see Kuwait national carrier’s code added to Turkish Airlines flights, and Turkey’s national carrier’s code added to Kuwait Airways flights operated between Kuwait and Istanbul/Sabiha Gokcen Airports. The bilateral codeshare partnership will commence from August 1, 2019.

 

Signing ceremony of this Codeshare Agreement took place today at Turkish Airlines Headquarters in Istanbul, and was attended Bilal Ekşi, general manager of Turkish Airlines, and Yousef Al-Jassem Al-Saqer, chairman of Kuwait Airways.

Ekşi said: “Istanbul is the natural and historical connection point between Asia and Europe. With its brilliant performance over the last 16 years, Turkish Airlines holds the title of the airline that flies to the highest number of countries in the world with 124 countries. The opening of our new home base, Istanbul Airport will further contribute and create new opportunities for our airline and I firmly believe that this Codeshare Agreement will support promoting the cultural and commercial relations between Istanbul and Kuwait. Both Turkish Airlines and Kuwait Airways will work closely to offer the best services to our passengers and improve the customer experience.

Al-Saqer, said: “We welcome Turkish Airlines as a codeshare partner. The new beginning of this revived partnership will bring enhanced connectivity and increased convenience to our customers, who can expect the same level of impeccable service that they expect from our airline, when they travel on codeshare flights to/from Kuwait to/from Istanbul/Sabiha Gokcen. The agreement will support Kuwait Airways and Turkish Airlines operating between the two cities and allow more travel options, facilities for the public to take advantage of the services provided by the carriers. 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. Passengers and travel agents will be able to book directly on these flights thru our website and agents’ reservation system. Further, this codeshare partnership will not only enhance the relationship between the two airlines but also the strong relationship between the two brotherly States, Kuwait and Turkey.”
