Boosting your Turkish Airlines Mileage Balance

If you are short on Turkish Airlines miles, remember you can always transfer Citi ThankYou points to Turkish Airlines. Typically, points transfer at a ratio of 1:1, with a minimum transfer of 1,000 points. Turkish Miles & Smiles passes along fuel surcharges for Star Alliance awards, but this won't be a factor for this sale because out-of-pocket costs for flights operated by Turkish Airlines are very reasonable.

Looking at the list, the standout destination on offer is Bangkok, which would set you back 63,000 miles roundtrip in business class, or 42,000 miles roundtrip in economy class. If there is another city you find interesting, you can determine the cost of your award by using the Turkish Airline's awards chart.

Our Take

It is disappointing, but not surprising, that there no U.S. destinations participating in the promotion; however, if you are going to be in Europe and are looking to travel further afield, then this promotion can be lucrative. Especially when you consider that Turkish Airlines has one of the biggest international route maps, and is one of the best airlines in Europe.
