Finnair and Turkish Airlines have announced a codeshare agreement that brings more choices to the airline’s customers.
Codeshares can be used to fill in market segments that one airline can’t cover easily or would take significant resources to increase.

• Sofia • Luxor
• Thessaloniki • Antalya
• Amman • Gazipasa
• Sharm El Sheikh
Respectively, the Turkish Airlines TK code will be added to the following routes from Finnair’s Helsinki hub:
• Kuopio • Tartu
• Vaasa • Riga
• Oulu • Vilnius
• Rovaniemi • Antalya
• Reykjavik • Gazipasa
