Resumption of flights from Bahrain to Turkey delayed

Turkish Airlines flights between Bahrain and Turkey will not resume until at least July, it has been revealed.

The airline was due to fly between the two countries again from June 10, but current flight plans on Turkish Airlines’ website reveal only domestic flights will be taking off until at least June 13.

A statement on the website says, “After the flight irregularities we experienced for a while due to the coronavirus epidemic, June brings us back to the sky.

“As a result of our meticulous work with national and international health authorities, we regain our loved ones, discoveries and memories to be accumulated through flights with healthier and safer standards.”

The airline will resume flights to 16 European destinations from June 18, but, according to Albilad Newspaper, flights to and from Bahrain are not set to resume until July onwards.

The news comes after Gulf Air resumed flights from Pakistan earlier this week.

Outbound flights from Islamabad, the capital, restarted on Sunday, with other cities set to be added to flight schedules in the coming days.
