Turkey Relaxes UK Flight Ban

Turkey has now lifted the suspension of direct flights from the UK.

This is to hopefully coincide with the government releasing traffic light system details for overseas travel.

Covid vaccination certificates will not be required to enter the country, however, a negative PCR test result is.

Tourists visiting Turkey are also being offered a special insurance deal, starting at €15 to cover Covid-19 related expenses such as treatment, medication and emergency care costs that may be incurred if visitors are taken to a state-owned or private hospital during their stay.

More than 8,000 facilities have been certified in a ‘safe tourism’ scheme covering accommodation with 30 or more rooms.

Airlines flying from the UK include Turkish Airlines, Pegasus Airlines, British Airways, EasyJet, Jet2, Tui, Sun Express. Freebird Airlines and Wizz Air have announced new routes this summer.
