Evacuation flights from U.S. to Turkey

Turkish Airlines (THY) will organize flights from 3 cities of the USA for the citizens who could not return to Turkey because of the cancellation of flights within the scope of precautions for the new type of coronavirus ( COVID-19) pandemic.

 The citizens who want to return to the country will provide their written approval to be quarantined for 14 days following their arrival in Turkey, either during the ticketing process or just before on boarding the plane. People showing COVID-19 symptoms on the day of the flight or have been diagnosed before will not be allowed on board. 

The ticket sales are available online. In the first two days of sales of relevant tickets, the tickets will be sold primarily to the citizens who have notified their names to the Washington Embassy and New York and Los Angeles Consulate Generals until April 14.
