With the introduction of joint flights on several destinations in Poland, Turkey, Middle East and Africa, passengers would enjoy more travel alternatives through the combined flights. By this chance, I would like to thank Mr. Milczarski, his team and our team for their efforts in making this agreement possible. Without a doubt, this agreement will help increasing the commercial and tourism ties of our countries.” said Bilal Ekşi, Turkish Airlines’ Deputy Chairman & CEO.

Joint flights will offer fast and convenient connections for customers leaving Istanbul, the biggest Turkish city and also an important flight hub in the world, to Warsaw and beyond.

We are very pleased about the enhanced codeshare agreement signed with Turkish Airlines that, as we hope, will strengthen our mutually beneficial cooperation even further. LOT Polish Airlines is one of the most dynamically developing carriers in Central and Eastern Europe. Over the recent years, we have recorded robust performance and a steady growth in our business. The enhanced partnership with Turkish Airlines will help us not only expand LOT route network and offer many new attractive destinations to our passengers but also improve connectivity and travel experience on existing codeshare routes beyond Istanbul, such as Ankara, Cairo or Amman. Considering this, I would like to express my gratitude to Mr. Bilal Ekşi, Turkish Airlines’ Deputy Chairman & CEO and his team for effective and successful cooperation – said Rafal Milczarski, CEO & President of the Management Board of LOT Polish Airlines.

Also, passengers will enjoy both domestic and international connections from Istanbul. Moreover, taking into account the complementary structure of timetables of both carriers and agreement working reciprocally, it will allow both airlines’ customers to enjoy seamless connectivity in their respective hubs.

LOT Polish Airlines and Turkish Airlines passengers have also benefit of accruing and redeeming miles in their respective loyalty programs Miles&More and Miles&Smiles on all flights of both carriers.
