Moscow announces that it would resume flights to Turkey starting from Tuesday

 Tuesday, June 22, 2021 


In a longed-for move, Moscow has announced that it would resume flights to Turkey starting from Tuesday, due to a series of preventative COVID-19 measures enforced in the country.

The decision was made due to a visit by a delegation of Russian experts, who arrived last week to evaluate safety measures at airports and accommodation facilities.

In April, Moscow had suspended most air travel with Turkey until June 1, later extending till June 21st.

Turkey Culture and Tourism Minister Mehmet Nuri Ersoy said that the move is “an indication of the trust in our country for safe tourism.”

“I hope that we will reap the fruits of our diplomatic traffic with Russia and other countries in the upcoming period,” said Ersoy.

This move is expected to motivate Russian holidaymakers visiting Turkish resort towns.

Industry representatives said that they anticipate at least 1 million Russian tourists to arrive all through the year.
