Turkey's Pegasus Airlines
By

ISTANBUL: Pegasus Airlines, a Turkish budget carrier, said on Tuesday it has suspended flights to and from Russia until Jan. 13 after authorities there failed to give its crew members visas.

Russia has instituted a number of sanctions against Turkish companies and individuals after the Turkish military shot down a Russian jet in November it said had breached its airspace while on a bombing campaign in neighbouring Syria.

A spokesman for state-run carrier Turkish Airlines told Reuters it has obtained visas for crew and its flights to Russia have not not been affected.
