Turkish Airline resumes international flights after almost three-month suspension

Turkish Airline resumed international flights today, June, 11 for the first time after an almost three-month suspension imposed to stem the coronavirus pandemic.

As part of the new “normalization” phase, Turkey resumed domestic flights as of June 1, which have been followed by international flights.

The resumption of international flights will be gradual and will cover more countries in each phase. Within this scope, Turkish Airlines kicked off charter flights to Germany, the U.K., and the Netherlands from Istanbul Airport.

Purchasing tickets days in advance, passengers started to arrive at Istanbul Airport during the early hours of June 11.

Passengers, who meet the criteria set out by relevant authorities from the two countries, can travel on charter fights. Only national flights of the destination countries or those with residence permits were allowed on the flight.

Entry into the terminals was also strictly regulated, with officials checking temperatures at the entrance and only allowing passengers with valid tickets to step aside.

Social distancing rules were also followed both by passengers and airport personnel.

In the meantime, international flights also resumed from Istanbul’s Sabiha Gökçen Airport, which stands on the Asian side of the metropolis.

The same rules, including social distancing and fever-measuring, were also applied to Sabiha Gökçen airport as only passengers, who wore masks, were allowed to check-in at the terminal.
