Turkish Airlines, Air Namibia join forces to open Africa travel
African air travel is on the up and up, and a newly announced codeshare agreement between Turkish Airlines and Air Namibia serves as a reminder of the growing potential on the continent.
The agreement, 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.
Under the terms of the agreement, Air Namibia and Turkish Airlines are planning to place 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.
