Snowstorm in Turkey Causes Flight Cancellations

A snowstorm in Turkey on Tuesday forced the closure of the Bosphorus Strait, a vital shipping channel in the region.  According to the GAC, a shipping agent, traffic for all vessels, both north- and south-bound was suspended at 11:45 am thanks to reduced visibility in the area, and this was the second day of intermittent closure of the strait.  As for the Dardanelles Strait, it remained open to traffic.  The two straits are the only maritime outlet for oil, grains, and a number of other commodities from Russia and other countries on the Black Sea.


The snowstorm also caused the nation’s carrier, Turkish Airlines, to cancel 76 flights over the course of Tuesday and Wednesday and this came after they cancelled dozens of flights on Monday.  According to the airline’s website, these cancellations were all weather-related.
