Turkish Airlines to evacuate 41 travelers from South Africa to Istanbul due to new Coronavirus variant


(MENAFN) On Saturday Turkish Airlines completed the evacuation process of Turkish citizens from South Africa due to the Omicron variant of Covid-19 after Turkey applied travel constraints on the nation.

According to an official with the airline statement to Anadolu Agency on condition of anonymity, as many as 41 travelers were taken out in flights from South Africa’s biggest two cities, Cape Town as well as Johannesburg, to the Turkish city of Istanbul.

Travelers are going to spend 14 days in isolation in spite of their vaccination statuses or latest contact with the virus. A negative PCR test is going to be needed to end quarantine in places specified by the domestic governorate.

The Turkish Embassy in Pretoria stated on Twitter that Turkish Airlines flights would indicate the last trip from South Africa to Turkey for an indefinite period.
