Republic Of Türkiye Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 05.04.2023

Turkish airspace has been closed to aircraft which land/take-off at Iraq’s Sulaymaniyah International Airport as of 3 April.

The decision was taken upon the intensification of PKK terrorist organization's activities in Sulaymaniyah, infiltration by the terrorist organization into the airport and thus threatening of flight safety.

The decision will initially be valid until 3 July 2023 and will be re-evaluated in light of the developments that will be closely monitored in the run-up to that date.
