He added that the connecting flights via other countries, especially European countries, have been completely restricted and controlled, and these restrictions continue until further notice.

The flight ban to measure was initially enforced on Dec. 22, 2020, for a fortnight at the request of the Health Ministry and the National Coronavirus Headquarters.
