Adria Airways, the strategic partner of Estonian airline brand Nordica has entered into a code-share agreement with Turkish Airlines. This is another remarkable step, which widens the choices for Nordica customers and adds some new possible destinations for Turkish Airlines passengers to and from Tallinn.

“Turkish Airlines, which is constantly been awarded the best airline in Europe, cooperates only with the best. Therefore, the fact that our strategic partner Adria Airways has been able to establish this code-share agreement with Turkish Airlines under Nordica brand is also a sign of trust for Nordica’s team and partners. Moreover, the current agreement proves the good choice of a partner we have through Adria Airways,” said Sven Kukemelk, Executive Director Business Development of Nordica. “I am sure that this cooperation will definitely benefit greatly both partners and based on this we can further increase Estonian accessibility especially via Istanbul to South-East Asia and Middle-East.”

Since Turkish Airlines and Adria Airways are both members of Star Alliance, the world's largest global airline alliance, and share a joint frequent flyer programs, then passengers will enjoy the highest level of quality and benefits on both airlines.

In current summer season, Nordica serves passengers on 15 direct routes from Tallinn to different European destinations.
