Turkish Airlines lifts suspension on US flights

Turkish Airlines has resumed flights to the US after the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) lifted the recent restrictions.

A suspension on all services to the US had been in place since last week’s failed coup in Turkey.

“All scheduled Turkish Airlines flights to the US will resume, starting as of July 19 with Turkish Airlines Istanbul – NYC flight at 06:45 am,” the airline said in a statement.

Turkish Airlines chairman of the board and the executive committee İlker Aycı said: “Earlier today I have stated that we saw no reason for the ban as all precautions were in line with the norms. Following our recent report and intense meetings, FAA removed the ban as expected.”
