SAS Ends Turkish Airlines Codeshare With Shift To SkyTeam

SAS Scandinavian Airlines will end its established codeshare agreement with Turkish Airlines on 1 September as it prepares to shift from the Star Alliance to SkyTeam.

The airline announced it would leave the Star Alliance for SkyTeam last year, following an investment from the Air France-KLM Group which gives the Group a 20% share of SAS.

Anko van der Werff, President & Chief Executive Officer of SAS, said of the decision: “The agreed investment is a key milestone in our SAS FORWARD plan, and it shows that our new investors believe in SAS and our potential to remain at the forefront of the airline industry for years to come. Further, our move towards a partnership with SkyTeam determines a clear path forward for the company. Through the completion of this process and the opportunities presented by being part of SkyTeam, we will be able to further enhance SAS’ offerings for the benefit of our colleagues, customers, and communities. We look forward to building a bright future for SAS together.”

SAS Turkish Airlines Codeshare

SAS and Turkish Airlines established their codeshare flights in April 2013. The agreement between the two Star Alliance partners gave travelers between the Nordic countries and Turkey increased access to the two airlines’ respective networks and facilitated seamless bookings and travel. SAS customers could also earn EuroBonus points on Turkish Airlines flights.

With the end of the codeshare agreement, travelers can no longer book flights with SAS route numbers operated by Turkish Airlines or vice versa. Passengers who have booked Turkish Airlines flights using SAS route numbers after September 1 will be rebooked onto the same flights, with their tickets showing Turkish Airlines route numbers.
