Turkey-UAE to resume flights on Dec. 17 for first time since coronavirus

Flights between Turkey and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) will resume within the next few days after being suspended in line with COVID-19 measures, DS reported.

Dubai government-owned Flydubai will start operating flights between Dubai and Istanbul on Dec. 17, a company spokesperson was cited as saying by Bloomberg on Sunday.

Turkey’s flag carrier, Turkish Airlines (THY), also plans to resume the route within days, a person with knowledge of the matter who asked not to be identified told Bloomberg.

The flights conducted by THY and Emirates – which is also owned by the Dubai government – remained suspended even after both carriers revived their pandemic-depleted schedules.

The UAE’s aviation regulator didn’t initially respond to requests for comment, the Bloomberg report said.

The Dubai-Istanbul flights ranked among Emirates’ busier routes.
