Holidaymakers in Turkey 'face no restrictions' following coup attempt

Holidaymakers to Turkey have been told they will not face any restrictions as a result of the state of emergency imposed following the failed military coup in the country.

The announcement came from the ministry of culture and tourism following the three-month state of emergency being declared last week.

The declaration is designed to “preserve the basic rights and freedom of our citizens by increasing security measures which is done in accordance with the Turkish constitution,” according to the ministry.

A statement said: “The heighten security measures will not restrict day to day life or any tourists movement around the country.

“There are no restrictions in place for the Turkish airspace and no negative situation for the safety of tourists visiting holiday destination in Turkey.”

The announcement follows a number of cruise lines cancelling calls to Turkish ports and the failure of Turkey specialist operator Anatolian Sky Holidays earlier this month.
