Gazipaşa-Alanya Airport met its first scheduled international flight after the travel restrictions were lifted. Domestic flights have been running successfully since June.
International flights started after a break due to the pandemic at Gazipaşa-Alanya Airport operated by TAV Airports. This morning, the FinnAir plane, with 166 passengers from Helsinki, the capital of Finland, was greeted by a water jug.
TAV Gazipaşa General Manager Ekrem Akgül said: “We are happy to welcome our passengers and scheduled flights at our airport. With the end of travel bans in early June, we started to serve domestic flights. Thanks to the comprehensive measures we have implemented with our stakeholders, we have carried out a smooth operation until today. Today, we met our first flight on international flights. In the coordination of the Ministry of Transport, which we have prepared together in this process, we would like to thank our airlines, DHMI, SHGM, and all our stakeholders, as well as local governments and NGOs. We hope that our international flights will continue to increase in the upcoming period and welcome our guests from all over the world. ”
During the summer season, FinnAir will organize a trip once a week between Gazipaşa and Helsinki. Gazipaşa-Alanya Airport is getting ready to meet the first passengers from Russia on 10 August this season.
In line with the Airport Pandemic Precautions and Certification Circular published by SHGM at the airport, directions and signs were made to help passengers and airport workers maintain their physical distances across the terminal.
