ANKARA (Turkey), January 14 (SeeNews) - Turkish Airlines [IST:THYAO] has resumed its flights to Kazakhstan after suspending earlier this month over unrest in the central Asian country, Ankara-based media reported.

A total of 238 passengers were on the flight from Istanbul to Kazakhstan's capital of Nur-Sultan late on January 13, Anadolu Agency reported on Thursday.

A Turkish Airlines' flight to Kazakhstan’s main aviation hub, Almaty Airport, was scheduled to take off later the same day, the news agency added.

The air carrier suspended its flights to Kazakhstan earlier this month due to protests over higher fuel prices. Kazakhstan's president Kassym-Jomart Tokayev declared a state of emergency last week in response to the unrest.
