Media: Russia may resume flights with Turkey in July

The Russian headquarters for the fight against coronavirus is discussing the resumption of flights with Turkey from July 1, Forbes and Interfax report, citing sources. From Russia to Turkish resorts can open seven flights a week. Airlines will be given a minimum of 10 days to prepare planes and schedules.

As the Forbes interlocutors clarify, the final decision has not yet been made. The source of the publication in one of the relevant departments said that against the background of the surge in the incidence of COVID-19 in Russia “it seems safer to open communication with Turkey, where the indicators have already stabilized.” He said that seven flights a week could be launched from Russia to Turkey. It is unclear whether these flights will be operated by several airlines or only Aeroflot, said Forbes interlocutor in one of the air carriers.

“The airlines will have at least 10 days to prepare the aircraft and form the timetable,” a source to Interfax said.

Since April 15, Russia has suspended flights with Turkey due to the coronavirus outbreak there. A Russian delegation flew to Antalya this week to assess the situation with COVID-19. Tour operators asked to open the borders of the Russian Federation with countries with high tourist demand, including Turkey.
