TEHRAN, June 14 (Xinhua) — Flights to Turkey will likely be resumed on June 20 after nearly three months of suspension over the COVID-19 pandemic, an Iranian aviation official was quoted as saying by Press TV on Sunday.

“We have received some unofficial reports that the air border of this neighboring country will reopen next Saturday so that passenger flights could be resumed,” Maqsoud Asadi Samani, secretary of the Association of Iranian Airlines, was quoted as saying.

Samani said that resuming the flights to Turkey would be highly possible given recent negotiations between the senior officials of the two countries.

Iran is in talks with other countries to finalize the reopening of flight routes as the pandemic rise is slowing down, he said. Enditem
