Chairperson of Palestinian Department of Civil Aviation, Ziyad al-Bida has requested Turkey's support in aviation.
Speaking to the Anadolu Agency (AA) on Thursday, al-Bida said that they began using the Aris airport in Sinai, Egypt after the Gaza airport was destroyed by Israel in 2006.
"We want to begin flights between Aris and Istanbul. However, we have limited opportunities to do so. We request Turkey to assist Palestinian Airlines by providing one or two passenger planes," al-Bida underlined.
"Before Israel attacked Gaza, we had flights to Turkey, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. We just began flights from Aris to Jeddah. We want to launch flights to Istanbul. Turkey is a crucial country for us. We expect Turkey's support for new flights," al-Bida also said.
