Mandatory Corona- related health documentation for passengers traveling on domestic routes

As per the latest circular published by the Turkish Ministry of Interior, as of September 6, 2021, all passengers (including non-Turkish citizens) above the age of 18 who are traveling on our domestic flights within Turkey are required to present one of the following documents prior to departure:

  • A vaccination certificate proving that the passenger is fully vaccinated at least 14 days ago (One dose of Johnson and Johnson vaccine is sufficient.)
  • A proof of recovery: A positive PCR test result issued at least 28 days and at most 6 months
  • A negative PCR test result issued within the last 48 hours before departure

Please bear in mind that we are not allowed to accept passengers without one of the afore-mentioned documents on board our flights.

The following information only applies to Turkish citizens:

For citizens of Turkey over the age of 18, the aforementioned Corona-related health information is included in their HES code which can be obtained from the “Hayat Eve Sığar” mobile application. As of September 6, 2021, the Corona-related health information of our guests who are citizens of Turkey is checked during check-in via their HES code.  Please have your HES code ready to present it to our staff during check-in.

We kindly ask you to ensure that you have the latest version of the HES application installed on your device and allow the transfer of your health data (vaccination/immunity or test result status) to us as your airline on your application settings via “HES Kod Ayarları”. The mobile application is available only in Turkish.

Important: This does not eliminate the mandatory entry of the HES code at the time of booking, which is required to complete your booking for our domestic flights.
