Pakistan-Turkey pact

A wide-ranging codeshare expansion allowing entry into new markets for two major airlines has been signed by Turkish Airlines and Pakistan International Airlines to take effect from this Wednesday, 1 February.

PIA will now be able to sell Turkish Airlines’ points beyond Istanbul including Atlanta, Johannesburg, Atina, Amsterdam, Tashkent, Moskova, Miami, Boston, Houston, Washington, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago with its own airline code and flight number.

This is in addition to the already existing co-operation on the Istanbul – Karachi, Islamabad and Lahore routes; while Turkish Airlines will market PIA operating flights from Karachi and Islamabad to Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Muscat and from Lahore to Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

The carriers say the agreement provides passengers with “more feasible” connections as well as seamless travel opportunities between and beyond destinations in Turkey and Pakistan.

The new deal was signed by Turkish Airlines CEO and deputy chairman Bilal Ekşi and PIA CEO Bernd Hildenbrand, who said: “PIA values its commercial relations with Turkish Airlines and this expansion will add more value to them and be equally beneficial for our customers.”
