Turkey travel update

Attempted military coup in Turkey.
“Large scale military action is ongoing in Turkey, and a state of martial law is in effect.” -www.telegraph.co.uk

As a result some flights has been cancelled or diverted to another airport away from Istanbul.

Now I am really worried as were off to Turkey in August. 🙁

If you’re about to fly in like us or in the country already here are the things you must do:

* Stay indoors, avoid public places and be vigilant.

* Monitor Turkey’s travel update.

* You may contact your tour operator, travel agent, or airline for advice.
