Re: Turkey flight suspension

How about flying back to the U.K. Mushtaq? Our friends are in Akbuk and are due to fly back on March 29th. They say that things are not too good in Akbuk with panic buying and schools closed etc. Any advise would be good re flights back to Blighty. Thanks.

Re: Turkey flight suspension

In most cases airlines usually bring people back from their holidays unless the area has been quarantined like Italy was which isn't the case with Turkey.

Best to check with the airlines though as it may differ depending on the airline.

Re: Turkey flight suspension

If there are no flights out there will not be any any flying back. It stands to reason.

Re: Turkey flight suspension

Easyjet has previously said when other countries cancelled flights that it will organise repatriation flights for people with return tickets booked before the pandemic.
However that is the same Easyjet who today are still selling flights to/from Turkey for this week and through March and April.
Pegasus and Turkish airlines have also said they will repatriate. However they have stopped the sale of new flights to/from the UK.

With Virgin laying off their staff for 2 month minimum it gives you idea how long this will go on

Re: Turkey flight suspension

F & C today posted this update.

In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, Turkey has announced that flights between Turkey and the UK, Ireland, Switzerland, Saudi Arabia, Egypt and the UAE will be cancelled from 8am (local time) on 17 March. You should check with your airline before travelling.

Flights between Turkey and Germany, France, the Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Austria, Belgium and Sweden were suspended from 8am (local time) on 14 March until 17 April.

All passenger flights to and from Azerbaijan, Italy, Iraq, South Korea, Iran and China from Turkey have been cancelled due to coronavirus outbreaks in those countries. Land crossings with Iran and Iraq have also been closed.

The Turkish authorities have introduced a number of precautionary measures in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, including some restrictions on entry for travellers with recent travel history in certain countries.

Re: Turkey flight suspension

Piece from Hurriyet Daily News:-
Turkey will temporarily close cafes, sports, and entertainment venues and is suspending mass prayers in mosques in an effort to contain the spread of the coronavirus, as the number of confirmed cases rose to 47, authorities said on March 16.

Ankara also extended a flight ban to six more countries including Britain and the United Arab Emirates, bringing the total number of countries to 20, the health minister said.

I've not yet had any direct communication from Easyjet re my upcoming flights.
