Saudi Arabia flag carrier restarts flights to Istanbul after two years

Saudi Arabia’s flag carrier, Saudia, has restarted flights to the Turkish city of Istanbul, after being halted for two years due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The airline’s flights to Istanbul were halted over the past two years due to the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic and the measures imposed by countries in efforts to contain and control the virus. Saudi Arabia was one of the strictest countries in implementing and enforcing measures to combat the pandemic, but is increasingly looking to open up after the virus has largely come under control.

The restarting of the flights also comes amid a reset in relations between Saudi Arabia and Turkey.
