Etihad said on its website on Sunday it would operate flights to Istanbul’s two airports, Ataturk and Sabiha Gokcen, while Qatar Airways said on its website flights “are operating as schedule.” It also flies to Istanbul’s two airports.
Meanwhile, Emirates cancelled its morning flight EK123 to Ataturk Airport, Europe’s third largest hub. The airline is to operate its afternoon flight EK121 to Ataturk and another flight, EK119, to Sabiha Gokcen, according to the Emirates website.
All three airlines cancelled flights to Turkey on Saturday after a failed attempt to overthrow the Turkish government by factions of the country’s military on Friday.
