Somaliland (former British Somalia) is not Somalia (formerly Italian): its capital (and airport) is Hargeisa.

Not wanting to nitpick, but a small historical reminder is welcome :)
Somalia is not formerly italian. TTS is. The official name since 1949 for the former italian somaliland was the Trust Territory of Somaliland (TTS), UN Trusteeship under Italian administration.
In 1960 Italian and british somalilands merged to form present day independant Somalia (capital city Mogadishu) . The 2 regions are semi-autonomous though.
Hargeisa is the self-declared capital city of the self-declared Republic of Somaliland. It is unrecognised on the internatinal scene. Even Flemish-Belgium does not recognise it ;-) Last time I checked, the self-declared republic of Calalunia was not recognising Somaliland either. Shame !
But ok, Somaliland is today a region of Somalia which indeed corresponds more or less to the original british Somaliland.

SN26567, I haven't heard anything about this at all. Turkey has no diplomatic relations nor bilateral civil aviation agreement in place with Somaliland.
