Air Serbia And Turkish Airlines Explore Possible JV Opportunity

Our Bureau - : Jun 30, 2022 - : 11:01 am

Air Serbia and Turkish Airlines are enhancing their commercial cooperation with a new Memorandum of Understanding that explores deeper commercial cooperation, possibly leading to a joint venture.

The agreement was officially signed in Doha during 78th IATA Annual General Meeting in the presence of the two companies’ CEOs – Bilal Ekşi and Jiří Marek. With the MoU, the two companies will offer more competitive and more affordable flights between Türkiye and Serbia.

Starting from July, Air Serbia will introduce additional flights on the Belgrade-Istanbul route, growing into 10 flights per week between Belgrade and Istanbul, while Turkish Airlines will allocate wide-body aircraft to this route twice a week. Both parties will boost existing cooperation in terms of codeshare, cargo and Frequent Flyer Program (FFP) while developing cooperation alternatives on passenger lounges in their networks.

During their cooperation so far, the two companies have adopted and upgraded multiple times code-share agreements for flights to destinations within the networks of Air Serbia and Turkish Airlines. Joint flights offer quick and practical connections for passengers travelling out of Istanbul to Belgrade and onward, as well as for passengers travelling from the Serbian capital to Istanbul and onward.

In addition, Air Serbia added its JU code to flights of AnadoluJet, a subsidiary of Turkish Airlines, between Turkish capital Ankara and Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. At the same time, Turkish Airlines added its TK code to Air Serbia flights between Niš and Istanbul, as well as between Kraljevo and Istanbul, thus offering passengers access to the global network of Turkish Airlines on the aforementioned flights.
