What to Do If You Have a Turkish Airlines Ticket
Over the weekend, following multiple terrorist attacks and the failed coup on Friday night, all airlines flying to and from Turkey to the US or via a third country were banned through August 15. I wrote a post on the situation with alternative flight ideas, official statements and more. Then, this afternoon, the FAA lifted the ban.
If you’re in Europe and traveling on a Turkish Airlines ticket via Istanbul to get back to the US, however, you may still be hesitant to go through Istanbul. If you have a planned trip that takes you through Istanbul, you may also have hesitations—and/or a desire to consider other options. My post—which you can read in full here—can still help. Note that because the FAA ban has been lifted, Turkish Airlines is not under the same obligation to help, but every alternative I listed over the weekend is still worth considering. No matter what, make sure you travel smart!
