AJet, formerly known as AnadoluJet until March 2024, is a low-cost regional airline operating as a subsidiary airline of Turkish Airlines. Established in 2008 by Turkish Airlines, AnadoluJet initially focused on operating domestic flights and eventually expanded its services to include destinations in Northern Cyprus, Western Europe and Western Asia for its parent company.
In March 2020, the AnadoluJet brand was revamped to cover the entire Turkish Airlines international route network departing from Istanbul, ultimately offering over 20 routes from the capital.
In February 2023, Turkish Airlines announced plans to transform AnadoluJet into an independent airline entity, officially naming it AJet. AJet remains a wholly-owned subsidiary of Turkish Airlines.
Fast-forward to the present, November 2023 marked a significant milestone for AJet as Turkish Airlines unveiled the airline's fresh branding and livery. AJet is set to acquire a separate Air Operator Certificate (AOC), further solidifying its position in the competitive airline industry.
AJet operates flights to domestic and international destinations across Europe and Asia.
