    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!

    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.

    Much better organised and cleaner than Atatürk airport. Has a decent choice of restaurants and duty free shops. Starbucks is more comfy than the lounge .. Avoir un vol sûr!

    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..

    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

    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.

    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.

    Disorganized and inefficient airport, I was lucky that I got help from the baggage handler. And then in the lounge you can see people sleeping and kids playing and crying everywhere!!!! 😕

    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

    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!

    İt is good because it is located at the "anatolian" side of the city. But it is getting crowded and crowded day by day. And there is not enough number of Toilets to serve this much traffic at this air
