Turkish Airlines has launched its new wholly-owned subsidiary, AJet, which will start operating to the UK from the end of March 2024.

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

This wholly-owned subsidiary, set to commence operations to the UK by the end of March 2024, marks a significant development in the airline industry.

The Genesis of AJet

Established in 2008 under the name AnadoluJet, the airline initially aimed to improve air transport links for Anatolia.

Over the years, it has evolved, culminating in its rebranding as AJet under the umbrella of ‘AJet Air Transportation Inc.,’ a wholly-owned subsidiary of Turkish Airlines.
