LOT and THY to cooperate further

LOT Polish Airlines and Turkish Airlines have signed a letter of understanding to initiate an enhanced cooperation between the two airlines in relevant Polish, Turkish and beyond markets. What model this cooperation will take has not been decided yet, however.

“LOT is ready to grow immediately as of 2016, and now is the best moment to strength equal cooperation with our key airline partners. LOT and Turkish Airlines have been partners for many years. I am convinced that this letter of understanding will help us to create unique and global offer. This will give our passengers all advantages of worldwide and supplementary networks of both carriers,” said Sebastian Mikosz, LOT Polish Airlines CEO.

“This strategic partnership between our airlines will enable both carriers to enhance their presence on their respective markets, while contributing their efficiency on the routes agreed within the scope of extended cooperation. Considering their membership to the same alliance group, one can say that such a strategic partnership will also benefit Star Alliance,” added Temel Kotil, CEO of Turkish Airlines.
