Russia on Sunday, August 28, lifted its ban on charter flights to Turkey, the government said on its website, Reuters reports.
Russia banned charter flights to Turkey, which was a popular holiday destination for Russians, after the shooting down of a Russian air force jet by Turkey's military last November.
On August 9, Turkey's President Tayyip Erdogan arrived in Russia's city St. Petersburg to meet his counterpart, Russian president Vladimir Putin.
The meeting was the first one since Turkey downed a Russian fighter jet near the Syrian border last November. It was also Tayyip Erdogan's first foreign visit after the failed coup attempt.
