Covid Safe Travel to Istanbul, Turkey

Turkey has developed a qualification scheme based on 132 requirements to ensure "secure tourism," which requires steps to be taken in businesses and modes of transportation to deter the virus from spreading. These projects have benefited visitors in Istanbul, and the government has kept tourism alive by opening tourist attractions in Istanbul.

Turkey took steps on February 24, 2020, following a rise in reported cases in Iran, by halting international flights and installing temperature controls at airports. Both flights to other countries were halted on March 15. Schools and colleges were closed on March 16, and teaching was performed online. Matches in the athletic arenas were rescheduled after being held behind closed doors until March 19. Restaurants, pubs, stores, gardens, and other public meeting spaces such as places of worship have all been shut down. The 31 largest cities in Turkey were subjected to a complete curfew on weekends and holidays, as well as inter-city travel limits. The entire country was quarantined for three days after Ramadan for the holidays.

Istanbul is one of the finest tourist spots in the country. If you're planning a trip to Istanbul during these days, you're probably wondering what steps the city would take to keep you safe. We can inform you that Istanbul is free of coronavirus and that you will not be infected if you take the appropriate precautions.

Covid-Safe Istanbul Travel

To ensure safe flying, airlines have issued a series of guidelines. They suggest using online check-in so you don't have to deal with counters or kiosks at Istanbul's airports. Separate panes are mounted on the counters. Passengers are assigned a row number before boarding, and they depart in small groups when arriving.

After each flight to Istanbul, planes are fully disinfected, and each aircraft's ventilation system cleans the air to a 99.97 percent standard. Cabin crews are given safety equipment and a hygiene expert takes their temperature, as well as that of passengers, before each flight. There is a limit on the amount of personal baggage that can be transported. In handbags, only personal belongings, tablets, and child personal effects are allowed. The full height and weight are 40*30*15 cm and 4 kilograms, respectively. Disinfectant dispensers are located at many crossing points in Istanbul's historical sites, and thermal checks are conducted on a daily basis. Wearing a mask and keeping a social gap of 1.5 meters is appropriate.
