Turkey is planning to gradually resume flights with 40 countries in June and has reached preliminary agreements for reciprocal flights to begin with 15 countries, Transport and Infrastructure Minister Adil Karaismailoğlu said on Thursday.

In a statement, Karaismailoğlu said the flights that would resume in June included those to Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Greece, Qatar, South Korea, Norway and others. He said Turkey was in talks with 92 countries on resuming flights, as containment measures over the coronavirus were eased.
