Turkish flagship airline Turkish Airlines has decided to extend until July the deadline for canceling flights that were previously suspended due to events in Ukraine. According to Turkish travel media, the ban on flights applies to two southern airports in Russia – Rostov-on-Don and Sochi, Yekaterinburg, the capital of Belarus and all of Ukraine.
Turkey's national carrier first canceled flights to the south of the Russian Federation until April 10, then extended the restriction for a week, and now the deadline has moved to the right by another month. As explained in the press service, the return of flights to the schedule should not be expected before June 30, 2022. Further decisions will depend on the current situation in the region.
The destinations with which Turkish Airlines has interrupted flights until the end of June are as follows:
- Minsk (Belarus)
Earlier, Turprom wrote that the relevant committee of the State Duma on tourism and tourism infrastructure development would send a letter to the government with a request to increase the number of flights of Turkish carriers to Russia.
