Turkish Airlines, Pegasus ticket holders allowed to travel to airport during weekend curfews
Turkish Airlines and Pegasus on Nov. 18 announced that their customers will be exempt from the partial weekend curfews and be allowed to travel to the airport during the time period that the curfew is implemented.
Turkish Airlines and Pegasus have each released a statement after the government announced that the country will enforce a weekend curfew from 8 pm to 10 am to slow down the spread of the COVID-19 infection.
Both of the companies said that their customers can travel to the airport during the time period that the curfew is implemented, provided that they are holding a ticket.
“On the weekends, during the hours that the curfew is implemented, our customers can carry out airport transportation with their flight documents,” Turkish Airlines (THY) Press Counsellor Yahya Üstün announced on Twitter on Nov. 18.
