Another facility for our passengers with disability

We are cancelling the requirement to submit related documents in each flight for discounts provided to our passengers with disability. Our passengers with disability, activating their Miles&Smiles membership by submitting a “proof of disability” document only once, will now benefit from a 20% discount in domestic flights and a 25% discount for international flights without the need to present any further documents.

In Turkish Airlines operated flights departing from Turkey, it is now enough for our passengers with disability to activate their Miles&Smiles membership by submitting a “proof of disability” document only once. Our passengers with disability will not be required to present any further documents in each flight to benefit from a 20% discount for domestic flight tickets and a 25% discount for international flight tickets.

Accepted documents

When our passengers with disability become Miles&Smiles members with submitting one of the following documents, no further documents will be required from them.

  • A disabled ID card obtained from the Directorate General of Services for Persons with Disabilities and the Elderly (Aile,Çalışma ve Sosyal Hizmetler Bakanlığı’na bağlı Engelli ve Yaşlı Hizmetler Genel Müdürlüğü)
  • Medical board report demonstrating disability rate of 40% and above obtained from a general state hospital
  • National Identity Card containing “disability” expression

Companion passenger discount

Discounted tickets can also be issued for the companions of our passengers with disability provided that they travel together. In order to benefit from discount, the companion card given to passenger with disability by the Ministry of Family and Social Policy or proof of disability document demonstrating the “right to have a companion” must be submitted to our sales offices.

Our efforts to cancel the requirement for our companion passengers to present related documents continue. Furthermore, we are working on a feature that will enable issuing discounted tickets for passengers with disability from our website and mobile app.
