Passengers will benefit from an increased number of flights; Turkish Airlines moving into Terminal 2

Having successfully launched their first codeshare flights on March 25, Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines now enter the second phase of their cooperation. This will include new codeshare flights starting from May 3rd. Flights operated in codeshare will be Munich-Istanbul (Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines), Munich-Ankara (Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines) and Munich-Izmir (Lufthansa). Frankfurt operated routes already started end of March. Today’s flight from Istanbul to Munich marks the arrival of Turkish Airlines into Terminal 2, a Joint Venture between Lufthansa and Munich Airport. The passengers of both airlines will now benefit from an increased number of flights, destinations and from better connections to Europe, the US and Canada.

Effective winter schedule 2007/2008, Turkish Airlines will be adding its code on more routes such as Atlanta, Boston, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Philadelphia, Portland, San Francisco, Washington and Charlotte. Lufthansa will add its code on Turkish Airlines operated flights to the Middle East, CIS and Turkish domestic destinations.

Members of both carriers’ frequent flyer programmes will be able to collect miles on the Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines networks and also redeem them with the partner carrier. Therefore, both Miles & More and Miles & Smiles members will be able to benefit from the advantages of a wider range of flights.

The cooperation agreement was signed in December 2006 in Istanbul by Lufthansa CEO and Chairman Wolfgang Mayrhuber, Turkish Airlines Chairman Candan Karlıtekin and Turkish Airlines General Manager Temel Kotil.
