Turkish Airlines Offers Refunds on US TicketsTurkish Airlines Offers Refunds on US Tickets

Turkish Airlines passengers flying from Turkey to the US or vice versa before Jan. 9 can change their flights for free or get a free refund regardless of standard fare rules for any tickets issued on or before Oct. 9, the national flag carrier announced on Friday. The move comes a day after the US Embassy in Ankara announced full resumption of visa services for Turkish citizens. On Oct. 8, the embassy had suspended non-immigrant visas to Turkish nationals following the arrest of a local employee working at the US Consulate in Istanbul, prompting a tit-for-tat response from Ankara, reported. The airline said, for Turkish passport holders bound for the US from Turkey (excluding transit passengers and holders of valid US visas), refund requests and booking changes would be processed free of charge.

Tickets' validity will be able to be extended until Jan. 9, 2019 free of charge, it added.
