    Vienna is the perfect place to visit any time of the year! Book your tickets and fly with Turkish Airlines via Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen.

    Pegasus, Sunexpress and Anadolu Jet Airlines fly out from here. It's always clean, quiet and efficient. Food is expensive as in all Turkish airports. Bring your own if you like. Love this airport.

    The best sleeping spot in check-in zone is in Starbucks on the second floor. Lie on a seat behind the counter and enjoy your nap!

    I like this airport more than "ataturk" it's cleaner and kinda cozy. Only bad thing i remember about this place is wifi. it's not free :/ at the end of the gates there is small lounge mostly empty👌🏻

    Explorer tip: if you want to take quick nap go to gate 301-307 and near escalator you will find nice and relatively quiet place.

    Located in asian side, made it is a bit difficult to access. Journey with Havatas shuttle bus takes 45-1 hour depending on the hour of the day. Please be aware of your flight schedule and plan ahead.

    Don't order transfer from the airport in advance- you may get it at the airport for 10Euro (if asking for a bargain). Or use the route bus to Taksim (10 Liras) and then metro to wherever you need.

    You definitely need to visit this airport, if you'd like to quit smoking. The airport is huge, and smoking is allowed nowhere :) However, I liked this place, because it's lovely Turkey! :)

    Welcome to Istanbul's Asian side (Asya)! Take the E10, E11 or the Havataş to Kadiköy where you can connect to the rest of the city by metro or ferry.

    This airport far from European side but very fast in check in and boarding because always not very busy in international flights. Use havatas bus to access to the European side.

    This airport knows exactly how to work. It's small, cozy & after hs of layover when you need at least a glass of water or wifi, sooner or later you'll give in, exchange money and buy 20TL wifi😑

    An extra Runway should be built in order to host millions of passengers estimated in the future from Eastern Destinations and to be the 2nd hub of Turkish Airlines. Work Harder SAW!

    Take the express buses (E10) outside of the terminal which are going to Kadikoy Ferry Stations (final station) where you can get into the ferries to across to European side very cheap and fast..

    Much better organised and cleaner than Atatürk airport. Free wifi. Has a decent choice of restaurants and duty free shops.

    Really far from town, make sure to leave ridiculously early in peak times like Friday afternoon. For food my place of choice is Kahve Dünyasi in the domestic terminal.

    I can't manage to find a slice of lemon in all cafés/restourants of departure floor. But the airport is comfortable and after security checks there're large Windows over the apron and smocking terrace

    A very strange airport, NO free wifi and overpriced shops but relatively clean and fast. Be prepared for extra security check at the entrance to building. For cheap transfer to city use bus E11.

    there are many plugs in the terminal. but best place is next to "kahve dunyasi" to charge your mobile or your laptop. (turn left after security check)

    Long-long corridor but there's an automatic pavement. Nice interior, quite quiet and Havatas shuttle bus to the centre.

    You don't have to take one of the airport cabs, you can download BiTaksi app, register your credit card and pay no cash. Besides you won't be deceived by the taxi driver, BiTaksi is safe.

    There is a lounge on the second floor, for entrance I payed 15 euros and it includes some food, like snacks, salads and even Turkish Chorba! And also wifi internet. The staff is very unfriendly!!!

    Located at the Asian side, relatively smaller, but very passenger friendly. Customs line can be longer than expected; add an extra hour.

    WiFi is for a fee, u can pay if you have a Turkish number. Otherwise it is a problem. But after the passport control u can find cafes which propose wifi, that can help your waiting for the flight

    This airport is the world's largest earthquake-proof building. It has a stunning 2 million square feet surface and is able to resist a 8.0 magnitude earthquake without suffering major damage.

    Just a fair, small and cozy airport. Duty free is quite limited. Light in the ckin area is not sufficient. Cleanliness is ok. Pax survey tablets do not work fine but it's an ok airport. Damn far!

    If you have to stay here for hours, make sure you visit the lounge for about 12 euros. It's worth it.

    Fast security check. The farthest gate is only 5 Not very crowded except holidays. City center is 30 mins away. You can only use buses or taxis. No underground train till 2018. Have a nice journey!
