    Russia's Federal Air Transport Agency is not going to recommend air carriers to suspend flights to Turkey despite a deadly terrorist attack on Istanbul's Ataturk airport on Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Federal Air Transport Agency (Rosaviatsia) said Wednesday that it would not recommend stopping regular flights to Turkey after the Istanbul airport attack.

    "Rosaviatsia will not recommend that air carriers suspend regular flights to Turkey," a spokesperson for the agency told RIA Novosti.

    The spokesman also noted that "there will be no need to further strengthen measures" at Russian airports, as there is already a high level of security.
