Payment for Turkish Airlines tickets with bank cards issued in Russia is again possible, but there are no guarantees that it will pass.
“Not all Russian cards pass, Visa, Mastercard must pass. Other Russian cards do not pass due to sanctions. There are many such situations, we do not know 100% of the information, sometimes the passengers pass the “Mir”, sometimes not. Sometimes Mastercard passes, sometimes not, we cannot give a 100% guarantee,” RBC was told in the call center of Turkish Airlines.
It is guaranteed that you can buy tickets using foreign bank cards, through an agent or at a sales office.
Visa and Mastercard suspended work in Russia in March due to the war in Ukraine.
Payment by cards of the Russian payment system “Mir” is still possible in some countries.
