ISTANBUL, December 10, 2017

Azul Brazilian Airlines has entered into a codeshare agreement with flag carrier Turkish Airlines.
 
Through this codeshare partnership, Turkish Airlines will add its flight code (TK) in Azul domestic flights. As a result, customers will be able to purchase tickets directly from Turkish Airlines sales channels to fly to Brazilian destinations operated by Azul. In addition to TK’s other partnerships in the region, passengers will have more alternatives by the virtue of this codeshare agreement.
 
"The codeshare with Turkish Airlines will be very important to strengthen our international presence, especially for customers travelling from Europe and Asia to Brazil. Now they will be able to enjoy the convenience of thru ticketing, check-in and boarding passes. On the domestic connection customers will experience the market leading and award winning service of Azul” said Abhi Shah Azul’s chief revenue officer.

“As Turkish Airlines, we are glad to be a codeshare partner with Azul, one of the most important airlines of Brazil. In conjunction with this new commercial cooperation, passengers would enjoy to travel from São Paulo to different Brazilian destinations as a continuation of their seamless Istanbul-Sao Paulo flight.“ said Bilal Ekşi, Turkish Airlines’ deputy chairman and CEO.
 
Initially, the Turkish carrier may place its code in Azul's operations from São Paulo (Guarulhos) to many destinations in Brazil, like Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte, Cuiaba, Curitiba, Porto Alegre, Recife, Goiania and Florianopolis, for example. The routes offer fast and convenient connections for customers leaving Istanbul, the biggest Turkish city and also an unmatched hub for its geographical position, to São Paulo. Moreover, the agreement works reciprocally; allowing both airlines’ customers to enjoy connectivity in their respective hubs. - TradeArabia News Service
