Turkish Airlines inks codeshare deal with Belarus flag carrier

ISTANBUL, May 2, 2018

Turkish Airlines and Belavia Belarusian Airlines, the flag carrier airline in Belarus, have announced the signing of a new codeshare agreement.
Through this codeshare partnership, Turkish Airlines and Belavia will reciprocally add their flight codes on Istanbul–Minsk flights operated by both parties.
“As Turkish Airlines, we are glad to be a codeshare partner with Belavia. We believe that this agreement will improve our relations with Belarus’ flag carrier while enhancing our commercial cooperation to the next level. With the introduction of these joint flights between both parties, passengers would enjoy more travel alternatives between Belarus and Turkey.” said Bilal Ekşi, Turkish Airlines’ Deputy Chairman & CEO.
“Minsk – Istanbul is one of the most important routes in the growing network of Belavia-Belarusian Airlines, and we believe that this cooperation with Turkish Airlines will lead to further enhancing both business and leisure flows not only between Turkey and Belarus, but beyond Istanbul and Minsk," said Anatoly Gusarov, director general of Belavia-Belarusian Airlines.

Initially, both carriers will place their codes on Istanbul–Minsk flights mutually. Inclusion of beyond points and/or other routes may also be assessed as a second phase after the activation of this codeshare agreement.
Joint flights will offer fast and convenient connections for passengers leaving Istanbul, the biggest Turkish city and as well as an important transfer point in the region, to Minsk. Moreover, taking into account the complementary structure of timetables of both carriers and agreement working reciprocally, those flights will allow both airlines’ passengers to enjoy the seamless connectivity in their respective hubs.
Turkish Airlines currently operates to more than 300 passenger and cargo destinations in 121 countries.
Belavia, in turn, offers short and convenient connections to Minsk Airport with daily departures to 50 destinations in Europe, Russian Federation and Central Asia. - TradeArabia News Service
