Turkish Airlines is the airline that flies to more countries than any other airline in the world. They have a great new airport they are based out of now with a world class business class lounge and great service in both business class and economy class. Now, they have been canceling flights to many of these countries almost at a rate of one every few hours – which will be next?
Turkish Airlines Has Canceled Flights to 70+ Countries
The full list can be seen at this page which is constantly updated with their latest countries and the policies for refunds or rebooking. Some of these suspension of flights have happened just today and many of those have been in Africa.
The majority of their canceled flights are until April 17 or 20, though some countries are set to resume service with Turkish Airlines around April 1. Definitely check this list to see if you have a flight that has been canceled in these latest rounds of suspensions.
While there are currently over 70 countries on the list, some of them will have greatly reduced flight services until mid-April so they do not have outright cancelations. Also, keep in mind that Turkish Airlines is the one airline that is continuing to serve many US cities during this time of a ban on visitors traveling to the US from the Schengen Area.
If your flight is with Turkish and affected, check out this post for more information about canceling/rebooking.
