Turkish national carrier suspends flights to Israel until end of January

Turkey’s national flag carrier, Turkish Airlines, has suspended flights to Israel from Jan. 26 until Jan. 31 without providing explanation.
The airline indicated that the move was in line with a decision by “related authorities”, Middle East Monitor (MEMO) reports citing Anadolu news agency.
The decision however coincides with Israel’s ban on all arriving international commercial flights as part of measures to curb covid-19 variant contaminations.
The order will be enforced until Jan. 31. Under the government directive, Times of Israel reports, all commercial aircraft are barred from entering Israeli skies or landing at Ben Gurion Airport.
