Turkish Airlines, Air Namibia come together to enhance Africa travel

Feb 8, 2017: Turkish Airlines and Air Namibia have signed a codeshare agreement giving a boost to the African air travel.

The deal, signed on Monday, 6 February, will come into effect from 1 March 2017. It covers routes between Turkey and Namibia, and is "set to expand the travel opportunities for the passengers of the two airlines," Turkish Airlines says. 

According to the agreement, Air Namibia and Turkish Airlines would be placing codes on unilateral flights SW on Windhoek – Johannesburg (visa versa) and Windhoek – Frankfurt (visa versa), and unilateral flights of TK on Istanbul – Johannesburg (visa versa) and Istanbul – Frankfurt (visa versa).

Also it has been considered that, when SW introduces the Windhoek – Istanbul (and visa versa) flights in future, this codeshare agreement will be expanded by placing the code to include beyond Istanbul flights.

Namibia Deputy Minister of Works and Transport honorable Sankwasa James Sankwasa has lauded the commercial partnership saying it will be fruitful for both sides and will be enlarged very soon.
