IndiGo has teamed up with VisitBritain to promote affordable travel between India and the UK via Turkish Airlines codeshare flights to London, Manchester, and Birmingham, with the aim of boosting tourism and economic development between the two countries.

Mr. Vinay Malhotra, Head of Global Sales at IndiGo, stated that the United Kingdom attracts visitors all year round, but experiences a higher influx during the summer and late spring. IndiGo’s codeshare partnership with VisitBritain and Turkish Airlines will provide customers with more travel options, especially during India’s peak tourist season. He added that IndiGo is dedicated to ensuring a pleasant flying experience for its customers with courteous, hassle-free, on-time, and affordable travel across its extensive network.

According to Ms. Louise Bryce, the Director of Partnerships at VisitBritain, India is a significant market for inbound visitors, and there is a strong desire for travel. She stated that they aim to provide a first-class welcome to visitors, and improving access to Britain, including through regional gateways, is vital to promoting tourism and encouraging visitors to explore more of the country.

IndiGo has previously formed a codeshare partnership with Turkish Airlines. In fact, last year IndiGo announced 32 new connecting flights to various major European destinations such as Milan, Manchester, Birmingham, Rome, Venice, Portugal, and Switzerland, as a result of this partnership.

Qantas revealed a codeshare deal with IndiGo in August of last year, allowing travelers flying to Delhi and Bengaluru to easily connect with key destinations such as Chennai, Mumbai, Pune, and Goa.

A codeshare agreement enables two airlines to expand their customer base to destinations served by either of them. Such partnerships enable airlines to book their passengers on their partner carriers, providing seamless travel to destinations where they have no presence.
