Korean Air resumes flights to Istanbul

All News 19:21 July 20, 2016

SEOUL, July 20 (Yonhap) -- Korean Air Co., South Korea's largest full-service carrier, resumed its flights to Istanbul, Turkey, on Wednesday following the failed military coup, company officials said.

Charter flights between Incheon and Istanbul, which run five times a week, have been suspended since Monday.

Korean Air said it will reduce the number of flights to Istanbul to three times a week, as this year's tourist season has already seen a significant decrease in visitors.

Seoul's foreign ministry issued a special travel warning advising its citizens to leave the region or cancel non-essential trips there. The warning will be effective until Aug. 29 and could be lifted early or extended according to the local situation.

The military coup in Turkey occurred on Saturday, killing at least 290 people and wounding more than 1,400 others, according to the Istanbul foreign ministry.
