Istanbul: Global passenger carrier Turkish Airlines wants to expand its codeshare agreement with the largest domestic player IndiGo to expand its India footprint and tap into the rising transfer passenger traffic from the country. A codeshare agreement allows two airlines to sell seats on each others’ flights in order to provide passengers with a wider choice of destinations.

The Istanbul-based airline is in a unique position as it not only has a codeshare agreement with IndiGo but also with Air India.

The airline has commenced talks with IndiGo over the possibility of enhancing their present agreement, which was reached in 2018.

The current codeshare and mutual cooperation agreements between Turkish Airlines and IndiGo enable passengers of both the carriers to fly to various destinations in India, Turkey and beyond.

Significantly, the agreement has been beneficial for Turkish Airlines, as it gets a healthy traffic flow from IndiGo for its extensive network in Europe.

Nonetheless, the enhanced agreement might see the addition of other European destinations, including London, along with routes from Istanbul to the US East Coast.

On the other hand, it is expected that out of the two daily flights from New Delhi to Istanbul, IndiGo might start one service from another Indian city.

At present, Turkish Airlines operates 14 times a week to both New Delhi and Mumbai from Istanbul, while IndiGo operates two daily services between Delhi and Istanbul. (IANS)
