Turkey closed the Dardanelles in both directions for the movement of transit ships. It is reported by TASS.

Thus, the strait connecting the Aegean with the Sea of ​​Marmara and through the Bosporus with the Black Sea was closed due to dense fog.

At the same time, bad weather caused the redirection of 22 aircraft from Sabiha Gokcen Airport to the new Istanbul Airport.

It is noted that traffic will be restored after the fog clears.

Previously, the Public News Service wrote that Vessel traffic was banned in the Bosphorus Strait.

It is clarified that the ban is temporary and related to weather conditions.

“The Istanbul Strait was closed to the passage of ships in both directions due to heavy fog,” the report said.
