Air Serbia has expanded its codeshare partnership with Turkish Airlines by placing its designator code and flights numbers onto the latter’s services between Istanbul and Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver as of today. Tickets are available for purchase through Air Serbia’s website. Previously, EX-YU Aviation News exclusively reported in June that the Serbian carrier had been issued codeshare permits from the Canadian Transportation Agency. Commenting on the development, Air Serbia’s Manager for International Affairs and Alliances, Ivana Miklja Mučalov, said, “We continue to develop our longstanding partnership with Turkish Airlines. Thanks to this new expansion of the codeshare agreement, passengers will have the opportunity to travel via Istanbul to three important and large Canadian cities. The service to Canada is of great importance for the large diaspora from the wider Balkan region, as well as for all others who want to visit Canada for business or tourism”. Air Serbia now codeshares on 21 routes operated by Turkish Airlines. The Serbian carrier is considering introducing nonstop services to Toronto as its third destination in North America.
