Air Astana and Turkish Airlines, award-winning carriers from Central Asia and Europe, have signed a codeshare agreement on routes between Kazakhstan and Turkey. The agreement was signed at the IATA Annual General Meeting in Cape Town by Peter Foster, President of Air Astana, and Dr Temel Kotil, President and CEO of Turkish Airlines.
Air Astana and Turkish Airlines signed the Letter of Intent to expand the range of cooperation between the two carriers in March 2013. The codeshare agreement allowed passengers to benefit from a higher number of combined frequencies for better connectivity and increased travel flexibility between the two countries. Codesharing on flights between Almaty - Istanbul and Astana – Istanbul additionally include special prorate agreements on sectors beyond respective hubs in Almaty, Astana and Istanbul.
The code-share agreement signed today is the latest step in the increasingly close link between  the two airlines; both of which show equal ambition to continue to progress well above average world ratings and fully committed to delivering excellence in customer service,” said Peter Foster, President of Air Astana.
Air Astana commenced regular flight operations on 15 May 2002 and currently operates a network of almost 60 international and domestic routes from hubs in Almaty, Astana and Atyrau. Air Astana flies an all-western fleet comprised of two Boeing 767s, five Boeing 757s, twelve Airbus A320 family aircraft, and seven Embraer 190s.
