Russia extends suspension of air service with Turkey
Russia extends suspension of air service with Turkey and Tanzania until June 21 due to the serious coronavirus situation in these countries, Russia’s anti-coronavirus crisis center said on Monday.
"In view of the serious epidemiological situation in Turkey and Tanzania, the current restrictions on air service will be extended until June 21, 2021," TASS cited the statement as saying.
Following a surge in coronavirus cases in Turkey, Russia restricted air service with Turkey for a period from April 15 to June 1. The number of flights was reduced to two per week on a reciprocal basis. These flights are operated by Russia’s Aeroflot and Turkish Airlines.
Apart from that, Russian suspended flights to Tanzania for the same period.
