The airline stressed that it has implemented stringent health and safety measures due to the pandemic.

All passengers, including Turkish Airline staff, are required to wear a mask at all times, while a ‘hygiene kit’ (consisting of a mask, a hand sanitizer and an antiseptic tissue) will be provided to passengers on board.

‘Hygiene expert’ cabin crews appointed in flights will be in charge of lavatory disinfection and enforcement of all on-board hygiene and social distancing measures.

During the flights, cabin air is constantly cleaned by hospital-standard HEPA filter, and the air is completely renewed about every three minutes, it said.

Turkish Airlines is also offering flexible options for those booking new flights. Travellers can change tickets bought until March 31, 2021 for another flight taking place by December 31, 2021.

Alternatively, passengers can change their ticket to an open ticket for use on another date.

They can also make unlimited changes for tickets booked between these dates with no penalties incurred.

The airline urged passengers to review the travel rules, restrictions and regulations implemented by the countries they are visiting before making any travel arrangements.

Earlier this month, Dubai airlines Emirates and flydubai also resumed flights to Turkey.
