In anticipation for the resumption of international travel, AirAsia's website airasia.com is partnering with Turkish Airlines to offer interline ticketing between the budget airline and the national carrier of Turkey.
As part of the collaboration, airasia.com will enhance its flight network to include Turkish Airlines' network which currently is the world's largest with 319 destinations across the globe. The website's interline technology will combine Turkish Airlines' flight inventory with AirAsia flights and offer itineraries with both airlines.
According to AirAsia, the partnership will “generate a substantial synergy between the two parties through the cross -promotion of destinations, with the mission of being proactively prepared to tap into forthcoming return of travel .”

We welcome our partnership with Turkish Airlines, and the opportunity to promote Turkey as a major gateway to Europe, which will prepare us for the rebound in travel that we expect to happen once borders gradually reopen next year. Today airasia.com with its comprehensive portfolio of travel and lifestyle products is well-poised to promote the best that Turkey and the wider European market have to offer. We will continue to collaborate creatively with other industry players to stimulate travel demand and complete our product offering as the one-stop platform for all our customer’s travel and lifestyle needs.”
Bilal Ekşi, CEO of Turkish Airlines said, “We are glad to be partnered with airasia.com with this collaboration that we believe to see its advantages all together in near future.
