The Federal Aviation Administration has lifted the flight restrictions imposed on travel to Turkey in the wake of an attempted coup.

The FAA suspended flights to Turkey after an unsuccessful coup against President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Friday, as it sometimes does when military conflicts could endanger travelers’ safety. But on Monday afternoon, the agency lifted the restrictions, USA Today reports.

The FAA had recently suspended flights to Ataturk Airport in Istanbul after a bombing killed more than 40 people there in June.

An FAA travel warning is still in effect for Turkey, urging U.S. citizens to “reconsider travel to Turkey at this time.”
