All of Air Canada’s immediate flights into and out of Istanbul were canceled after two bombings on Tuesday at Turkey’s Ataturk Airport. Dozens of people were killed at one of the busiest international travel hubs. It is Turkey’s largest airport and in 2015 was the 11th most popular airport in the world. It’s a common layover destination for people traveling to Asia from North America and Europe. The Canadian government recently emphasized its travel advisory to Turkey and warned about terrorism concerns.
A Tuesday flight from Pearson International in Toronto to Ataturk Airport and a return trip on Wednesday were both canceled. An earlier flight from Istanbul landed in Toronto early Tuesday. A spokesperson for Air Canada said that Air Canada employees in Istanbul are safe.
