The US government has lifted its ban on flights from Turkey
The US government said Monday (July 18) that it has lifted its ban on flights from Turkey to the US, which it issued over the weekend in the wake of a bloody failed coup attempt in the country.
The Federal Aviation Administration had prohibited US commercial and private carriers from flying to and from Turkey. It had also barred all flights (on any carrier) from Turkey from flying into US airports.
The ban prevented Turkish Airlines from flying to the US. The carrier normally offers service from Istanbul to New York, Atlanta, Washington, Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
