SAS and Turkish Airlines Commence Code-Share Partnership
SAS and Star Alliance partner Turkish Airlines have entered into a code -share agreement that offers Scandinavian travelers easy access to six destinations in Turkey. As of today, SAS customers are able to book Turkish Airlines operated flights with a SK flight code on www.flysas.com (or with a travel agency) from Copenhagen, Oslo, Stockholm, Gothenburg, Helsinki, Aalborg and Billund to Istanbul and further on to Ankara, Antalya, Bodrum, Dalaman and Izmir. In addition, Turkish Airlines will add their code to more than 20 destinations in Scandinavia and Finland.
"We are very pleased to announce this code-share agreement with Turkish Airlines. Both tourism and trade between Scandinavia and Turkey have increased with double digit figures the last years, and we are happy to be able to offer our customers flights to six destinations in Turkey", said Joakim Landholm, EVP Commercial at SAS.
SAS customers will also be able to earn EuroBonus-points on all Turkish Airlines flights since both airlines are partners within Star Alliance. Turkish Airlines operates three daily flights to Copenhagen and Stockholm, twelve weekly flights to Oslo and Helsinki, ten weekly flights to Gothenburg and three weekly flights to Aalborg/Billund, a total of almost 80 weekly flights between Istanbul and Scandinavia/Finland.
