From 1 October 2018, flybmi customers will be able to fly on routes from the UK and Ireland to Istanbul thanks to a new codeshare partnership with Turkish Airlines.

The strategic move strengthens both airlines’ network presence throughout Europe.

This is yet another step for flybmi in building a comprehensive network of strategic airline partnerships that allow us to reach new customers and widen our overall network reach. Entering into this partnership with Turkish Airlines is part of our over-arching strategy to further improve connectivity to/from our network of key business regions throughout Europe.”
