Istanbul turkey

Flights to Turkey resume

Monday, August 1, 2016

Ankara: The Foreign office has advised that, although the attempted coup has died down, the security environment in Turkey remains potentially volatile. 
The update of travel information for British tourists comes after a state of emergency was announced in Turkey for at least 3 months and the country’s President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, announced that the European convention on Human rights will be suspended during that period.
Most airlines are now operating flights to Turkey as normal following the disruption caused by the attempted coup but have stated that they are constantly monitoring the situation in the country.
It is currently unclear what affect the on going instability will have on the country's tourism industry.
For more information before you travel contact your operator and consult the Foreign office website.
