High winds prompted Turkish Airlines (THY) to cancel at least 72 domestic and international flights due to the heavy storm that hit Istanbul on Friday. Inner-city and inter-city ferry lines were also suspended.

“We strongly recommend our passengers that they check for the most up-to-date information about their flights through our call centre at (+90 212) 444 0 THY/444 0 849,” THY said in a statement.

Istanbul Fast Ferries Co. Inc. (IDO) and Bursa’s BUDO also announced they have cancelled trips from and to Istanbul. IDO also cancelled all sea bus services in the city.

Ferries to and from the Aegean islands of Imbros and Tenedos have also been cancelled.

The Met office has said that winds reaching speeds of 70 to 90 kilometres an hour will affect Istanbul and the Marmara region on Saturday and Sunday.
