All flights bar long haul to and from Atatürk Airport were cancelled today due to snowfall.

Following a new wave of cold air and snowfall, no vehicles are permitted to use the roads in Istanbul without chains on their wheels.

“Vehicles, especially trucks, without chains on their wheels will not be permitted in traffic in order to avoid disruptions,” the Istanbul Governor’s Office announced today, warning citizens not to drive their private cars without the compulsory requirements.

Snowfall is expected to continue until noon on Wednesday, the office added.

Istanbul municipality has reported a total of 841 traffic accidents since 17th February because of treacherous driving conditions.
