A unique service from Turkish Airlines…
When you fly with a revenue ticket with which you will accrue miles, anyone traveling with you can fly for free against fewer miles comparing the miles required for the award tickets. The ticket issued for this purpose is called a companion ticket and can be used only on Turkish Airlines flights.
There are two types of companion tickets in Miles&Smiles Program which are "Capacity Controlled Companion Tickets" and "Seat Guaranteed Companion Tickets".
The reservation classes are X (for Economy Class) and I ( for Business Class) for the "Capacity Controlled Companion Tickets’.
The required miles for "Capacity Controlled Companion Tickets" are lower than the required miles for "Seat Guaranteed Companion Tickets".
How to use a companion ticket:
First of all, buy your mileage-earning revenue ticket with a confirmed reservation from any THY sales office or from your sales agent. Then book the companion ticket at the same THY sales office or sales agent, or at a THY reservation center, stating clearly that it is a companion ticket you require. Please remember to quote your Miles&Smiles Program membership number and other necessary detailed information while making reservations either for yourself or for your companion.
Possible extra charges (Airport taxes, duties etc.) are paid by the Member.
Companion ticket must be issued within the normal ticketing time limit after the reservation is confirmed.
The number of miles required for companion tickets is automatically deducted from your mileage account.
Companion tickets can be picked up from any Turkish Airlines sales office upon presentation of a valid identification card.
