Travel News 01 Jul 2016

According to Buying Business Travel, flights have resumed at Istanbul’s Ataturk airport following Tuesday’s terrorist attack which has killed more than 30 people and injured over a hundred more.

Turkey’s prime minister Binali Yildirim confirmed the airport was now open for incoming and outgoing flights, although travellers have been told to expect delays and some cancellations.

All operations were immediately suspended after the bombings by at least three attackers who began shooting inside the terminal before blowing themselves up.

Istanbul-Ataturk airport is the third busiest European airport, with 61.8 million passengers in total last year.
