Turkish Airlines and KM Malta Airlines launch codeshare partnership

Turkish Airlines and KM Malta Airlines have signed a code-sharing agreement

Turkish Airlines and KM Malta Airlines, Malta’s flag carrier, have signed a code-sharing agreement to operate joint flights.

The codeshare agreement, effective from June 2024, will provide passengers of both flag carrier airlines more flexible travel options on direct flights between Istanbul and Malta.

KM Malta Airlines will place their marketing flight numbers on Turkish Airlines flights between Istanbul and Malta, and vice versa.

Commenting on the codeshare agreement, Bilal Ekşi, Turkish Airlines CEO, said: “We are pleased that the codeshare agreement with KM Malta Airlines will re-foster cooperation between the two countries and provide seamless journeys for passengers flying from Malta and Türkiye.

“Not only does this partnership enable Maltese travelers to benefit from the wide network of Turkish Airlines on a global scale, but also promotes more visitors from Malta to visit our unique country, Türkiye.

“Likewise, Malta, the fascinating island nation of the Mediterranean, will attract more visitors. We look forward to a successful, long-standing collaboration together.”

David G. Curmi, KM Malta Airlines’ Executive Chairman, said: “We are very pleased to count Turkish Airlines among our codeshare partners.

“Istanbul is a major hub connected with Malta twice every day, offering our Maltese customers a large choice of destinations.

“It also allows our international customers enhanced connectivity through Malta International Airport, linking both our networks.

“And it shows that KM Malta Airlines is recognized by large carriers as a partner of choice.”
