TEHRAN (Iran News) – Turkey’s flag carrier Turkish Airlines (THY), which had suspended its international flights due to the coronavirus outbreak, announced its new flight schedule for September.
Flights to Iran, which were suspended again on July 19, were also included in the rescheduling and will be resumed as of Sept. 1, Daily Sabah reported.
The company said in a statement Sunday that they have arranged the schedule for next month “as a result of meticulous work with national and international health authorities.”
The statement noted that customers will be offered flexible travel opportunities as it is difficult to make plans during this challenging period in which flight suspensions depend on government and company decisions according to the number of cases in relevant countries.
Customers are set to be offered unlimited changes for tickets bought for the period between March 21 and August 31, it said.
The company said that it plans to resume flights to Tehran, Tabriz, Shiraz and Mashhad in Iran as of September 1.
Meanwhile, the Tehran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture (TCCIMA) announced that it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Iran-Turkey Joint Chamber of Commerce for cooperation in drawing a roadmap for the expansion of trade between the two countries.
The MOU is aimed at developing trade relations between the two countries’ private sectors, mainly by exploring opportunities for boosting economic ties between the two neighbors.
Speaking at the signing ceremony on Thursday, Hesameddin Hallaj, TCCIMA deputy head for the international affairs, noted that the Tehran Chamber of Commerce has focused its efforts on developing relations with neighboring countries, adding, “Iran and Turkey have had good relations in recent years and now the Tehran Chamber of Commerce intends to put the expansion of these relations on the agenda through this memorandum.”
He further expressed hope that under the framework of this memorandum, the two sides would access information about each other’s companies, while problems in the way of the traders of the two countries will be identified and resolved.
“We are trying to draw a roadmap for the expansion of relations between the two countries by using the capacities of the Tehran Chamber and the Joint Chamber,” Hallaj stressed.
