A huge number of Turkmen citizens gathered at the Istanbul airport, whistling and chanting “Uchar!” ("Airplane!").

It should be recalled that since May 30, regular flights to Dubai have been resumed by Turkmen Airlines.

Foreign airlines, including Turkish Airlines, S7, Flydubai and Belavia, suspended flights to Turkmenistan in March 2020 due to the introduction of measures against the entry of the coronavirus COVID-19 into the country.
