Turkish Transportation Minister Warns US for new limitations: Do not confuse Istanbul with others

Turkey’s Transportation Minister Ahmet Arslan reacted to new US limitations but especially for including Istanbul as one of those airports impacted by limitations and said: ”I specifically emphasize that they should not confuse Istanbul Airport with some of other airports. Istanbul which is over 80 million flights realized should not be confused with others.”

The U.S. government is temporarily barring passengers on certain flights originating in eight other countries from bringing laptops, iPads, cameras and most other electronics in carry-on luggage starting Tuesday. A U.S. official told The Associated Press the ban will apply to nonstop flights to the U.S. from 10 international airports serving the cities including Istanbul.

Minister also stated his staff began working since yesterday to talk to their counterparts [in the US], added: “this is surely not a correct approach to our country. I think it’s not a right approach for US either because nobody would go from one place to another just because feels like it.” Minister stated they were told that the US will start pursuing new practices soon.
