Turkish Airlines to operate new low-cost carrier

AJet, Turkish Airlines’ wholly-owned subsidiary, will start operating UK – Turkey flights from the end of March 2024.

The rebranded low-cost carrier will take to the skies with a new summer schedule to destinations in Turkey.

The airline, originally called AnadoluJet, was established in 2008 to improve air transport links for Anatolia. The former Turkish Airlines brand will operate under the ‘AJet Air Transportation Inc.’ name as a wholly-owned subsidiary.

The new low-cost airline was “created to strengthen Turkish Airlines’ position in an increasingly competitive market” and will continue its operations based at Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen and Ankara Esenboğa Airports from the end of March 2024.

An airline representative said: “By simplifying the services offered and utilising a wholly Economy Class configuration, AJet aims to reflect the cost advantage in ticket prices.”

Prof. Dr. Ahmet Bolat, Turkish Airlines Chairman of the Board and the Executive Committee, said: “We fully believe that AJet, with its new name, will become an important part of the low-cost aviation industry on a global scale.”

Departing airports are yet to be announced.
