The transport minister said that the Moscow government has re-established all the flights from Russia to Turkey ever since 22nd July and that air travellers would be able to enjoy regular air connections.
Moscow had discouraged the Russian citizens from travelling to the region of Turkey immediately after the political unrest in Turkey following a military coup. Thereafter, Vladimir Putin, President, Moscow had ordered his officials to assist holidaymakers to return home safely.
This had prompted the airlines to cancel all flights leading to Turkey.
The ministry said that it had decided to lift the ban on air travel after it had received reassurance from Turkey who promised to look into the security of the Russians present there.
Aeroflot declared that it had begun to permit Russians use their regular flights to Turkey from 22nd July onwards.
On July 15th, various cities based in Turkey had proceeded to the battlegrounds during the coup that was directed against Tayyip Erdogan, the president of Turkey. However, the coup ultimately ended up in complete failure.
Recently, Turkey and Russia have renewed their ties with each other. This was done after one of the warplanes of Moscow had been shot down by Ankara last November in Syria.
The military coup in Turkey has adversely affected the tourism industry of this region that is heavily dependent on Russian tourists.
