The Milas-Bodrum Airport, serving locals and international tourists in Mugla, on the Turkish Aegean, resumed international flights as of Friday, the airport operator announced.

With travel restrictions over coronavirus eased, the airport is again offering two scheduled international flights, the operator TAV said in a press release on Friday.

After appearing last December in China, the virus saw lockdowns and travel bans worldwide, but with improving numbers in many European countries, restrictions have recently started to be eased.

Turkey has instituted special certification programs to assure tourists that its facilities have taken strict measures to prevent transmission of the virus.
