A quota of 540 will be provided on a first come, first served basis.   As Turkish Airlines flight TK083 from Istanbul, Turkey arrived on April 27 with three passengers on board confirmed with COVID-19, the Department of Health invoked the Prevention & Control of Disease (Regulation of Cross-boundary Conveyances & Travellers) Regulation to prohibit the landing of Turkish Airlines passenger flights from Istanbul from May 3 to 16.   For information and health advice on COVID-19, visit the Government's dedicated webpage.
