Turkish Airlines has launched a new discount for “healthcare workers who are working selflessly to combat the Covid-19 pandemic”.

Up to 100,000 eligible customers can get 40 per cent off tickets for themselves and up to three other people travelling with them, valid on all flights and ticket types booked via the Turkish Airlines website or mobile app.

Customers must pre-register for the offer by following the instructions on this page, and note that you must be a member of the carrier’s Miles and Smiles loyalty programme to take advantage of the promotion.

Registration will remain open until July 18, and eligible customers will be sent a promo code to use during the booking process. They then have until August 8 to book tickets, for travel until May 31, 2021.

The code will be unique to the customer’s Miles and Smiles membership number, to avoid it being passed on. Once the 100,000 limit has been reached, no more codes will be distributed.

Also note that the discount does not apply to taxes and charges, and according to the terms and conditions is “valid for a limited number of seats”.

It is not valid on codeshare or Star Alliance partner flights, and there are certain blackout travel periods.
