I think it is only available for departure countries which's local Turkish airlines websites shows %15 promo ads on their first page.

for that better to change country where you want to depart on right top corner.after change if you still see promo ads on the first page..than should be available.

I found the issue; if the discount button doesn't appear in the payment screen, use manually the code TKSMART18. It should work...

Where in the payment section you see the discount code box?

You need to scroll all the way down in the payment page, the one after you had already chosen the method (I used the CC)

You choose the payment method, say CC, and in the page where you can put the CC data, at the bottom there is the code field. Once filled it tells you the discount amount. Then you decide to ho on with the booking or not

By the way, I agree with you about the bravery

Here it is a screenshot from a blog

I got the same off a lower priced fare. I'm suspicious. Anyone got any other amount of discount?

I got £217 off Business Class flight to Bangkok in December which might also help go a long way towards my 25,000 points for a renewal of Elite in year one.




Have to say the app worked perfectly and easily - you just press the discount button - if only the main TK website was as good...

EDIT: App also let me select seats for flight in December- well outside the normal 100 days !

Looking at EZE for August.
Best I can find is 1375€ with discount code from VNO.
Tempted, just holding back cause positioning from NAP is quite a pain.
AMS 300€ more.
CAI strategic advantage seems finally gone.

PEK to FRA in Aug

Just scored a 600rmb off a 7800RMB Y fare - works out to be 8% which is still quite decent for the summer. The discount is on the fare, NOT the tax/surcharges.

Had to enter in the code TKSMART18 manually as well.

Booked a business class Ticket NYC-ATH and got the Discount. Booked a second ticket Business class NYC to Athens for my Wife but did not get discount. under the rules, it does not say that you can not buy multiple tickets at 15% off from the app or discount applies to one ticket per app. . I tried to cancel but Tk does not offer refund with 24 hrs because they have the 24 hr hold button but you can not use that button and then get 15% off. I called TK, complained and asked for them to honor discount on second ticket. They opened a file. Let's see what happens.

Thanks. I need to book two ticket for me & husband today (different return point) and I'll make sure to use different phones...
Good luck about your request. It's annoying sometimes the lack of 24h free cancellation option.

hmm. Looking to buy tickets for four (same itinerary and dates) tomorrow. I do hope the discount applies to all four if booked at the same time.
