According to a statement released on Friday, Turkish Airlines and IndiGo have resumed their codeshare agreement, which allows one airline to sell seats on the other’s flights.
“Turkish Airlines currently operates a daily flight on the Delhi-Istanbul and Mumbai-Istanbul routes, while IndiGo operates a daily service on the Delhi-Istanbul route and is also intending to add a second frequency from August 2022”According to a joint statement from the two airlines
According to the statement, the codeshare enables both airlines to offer their customers more options.
For instance, thanks to the codeshare, a traveller can purchase a single ticket on Turkish Airlines’ website for a trip from Istanbul to Bengaluru, with Turkish Airlines providing service from Istanbul to Mumbai and IndiGo providing service from Mumbai to Bengaluru.
Due to the codeshare arrangement, this person will receive his or her checked luggage directly at the Bengaluru airport since they are travelling together on a single ticket.
A codeshare agreement between IndiGo and Turkish Airlines was announced in December 2018, but it was cancelled effective March 23, 2020, due to the cancellation of all scheduled overseas flights caused by the coronavirus epidemic.
On March 27 of this year, India resumed its regular overseas flights.
The biggest airline in India, IndiGo, already has codeshare agreements with American Airlines, Air France-KLM, and Qatar Airways.
