The Turkish government is pushing for a lifting of travel warnings “at the earliest possible date”.

The recovery relates to both the short-term bookings for the summer months as well as autumn, Winter and already the summer of 2021. “With a view to Turkey, we would welcome it – in the interests of our customers, when it would come to a bilateral agreement,” the company said.
