FAA Lifts All Restrictions on Flights Between Turkey and the U.S.

Turkish_AirlinesThe Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has lifted the restrictions on flight arrivals from Turkey.

Following the attempted military coup in the country on Friday, the FAA had barred all airline carriers, regardless of country of registry, from flying into the United States from Turkey, either directly or via a third country.

With the lift of the ban, 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.

“Earlier today I had stated that we saw no reason for the ban as all precautions were in line with the norms”, Turkish Airlines Chairman of the Board and the Executive Committee İlker Aycı said in an announcement.

“Following our recent report and dense meetings, FAA removed the ban as expected”, he added.

Turkish Airlines resumes flights to a total of nine U.S. cities.
