Turkish Airlines says Istanbul transit passengers unaffected by US visa move

The suspension of visa services between the United States and Turkey will not affect Istanbul transit passengers, Turkish Airlines said in a statement on Oct. 9.

Those Turkish Airlines passengers affected by the visa move, whether Turkish nationals traveling to the United States or U.S. citizens travelling to Turkey this month, will have to apply for a change or refund of their booking by Oct. 31, it said.

The flag carrier’s shares were down 7.97 percent on Oct. 9, trading at their lowest level since July 10.
