  • High season is considered to be June and July. The cheapest month to fly to Turkey is January.
  • Enter your preferred departure airport and travel dates into the search form above to unlock the latest Turkey flight deals.
  • Most flights from the US to Antalya International Airport (AYT) include a single layover en route. The most common layover cities are Istanbul, Frankfurt, or Munich.
  • Antalya International Airport (AYT) has three terminals, a Domestic Terminal and Terminals 1 and 2 that handle international flights. The facilities and amenities in the terminals are modern and passengers can easily get around the airport via a walkway or Bus Route 600.
  • Those looking for cheap flights to Istanbul should consider flying into Sabiha Gokcen International Airport (SAW) instead of Istanbul Airport (IST). Most US flights to SAW include a layover en route and are much cheaper than those to IST.
  • Looking for a place to relax after your flight to Istanbul Airport (IST)? Head to the IGA Lounge located next to the Passport Control Airside of the International Terminal. This lounge allows you to pay at the door whenever space is available. You can also access the lounge through a prepaid lounge pass.
  • All US citizens flying to Turkey must have a passport with a validity of six months beyond their entry date. US citizens need a visa for stays less than 90 days, and you can get an online tourist visa which is processed in less than 24h.
  • If you’re planning to travel to Istanbul from the US, consider flying with Turkish Airlines. It offers nonstop flights to IST from most cities including San Francisco (SFO), New York (JFK), Miami (MIA), and Chicago (ORD) just to mention a few.
  • If you wish to tour Istanbul in between your flight through Istanbul, you can get a transit visa from your airline (mostly Turkish Airlines) and extend your layover, giving you a chance to leave the airport and explore the city.
  • Get a car rental at Antalya Airport if you’re looking for a great way to explore attractions in the city. Avis, Aytucar, Cizgi, Filo, GoldCar, Budget, and Alamo offer onsite services in the Arrivals Hall of the terminals.
  • If you wish to be closer to the city center, consider flying into Sabiha Gokcen International Airport (SAW) instead of Istanbul Airport (IST). SAW is much closer to downtown Istanbul, and it is also an international airport receiving flights from the US. It offers many domestic flights as well.
  • Consider flying to Adana Sakirpasa International Airport (ADA) if you're looking to explore the Cilicia region. The airport is conveniently close to the city center, just about with the trip taking approximately 10 minutes when using the municipal bus service.

Pros: "Great crew, excellent staff at the airport. Planes were nice and comfortable. Food was ok. They have an excellent price to quality ratio; you can often get great prices on some of the more popular destinations and the service is 5 stars."
Cons: "Some alcoholic drinks"
Pros: "The aircraft was comfortable and the electronic amenities were decent and needs improvement"
Cons: "Free WiFi and Dancing boys"
Pros: "My flight attendant, Grace, was delightful. There were several challenging passengers around me and I observed her handle them with the grace of someone who embodied their name—Grace."
Cons: "No wifi on board. The plane was one of the older ones, but still perfectly nice."
Pros: "Because I was in the bulkhead seat - it was good."
Cons: "My first flight arrived 30 min late which meant that my 50-minute layover was tight. But instead of holding the next plane for us, they forced us to re-book on a flight leaving 14 hours later! I was not ok with this so I pushed the issue and they put me on the flight leaving 6hrs later. :-((((("
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "WC size (too small) and location. Other airlines such as Lufthansa (NYC - Munich) do way better job in this category ( I believe Lufthansa aircraft was either A330 or 340)"
Pros: "The airline was helpful even though the flight was delayed"
Pros: "Comfort in long foight was amazing. Never felt tired. Upgraded movie collection. Food was great."
Cons: "Carry on baggage allowance is way too low. Only 7kgs including laptop bag is too low for international travel. TV screens were a bit old enough and had to click multiple times."
Pros: "The food was OK, but not really as good as what we had received on other airlines. Example, on one flight I had a fish dish which was overcooked very dry and there was no sauce of any kind to make it palatable. I do not like to throw food away but half way into the meal I had enough. Other than that Qatar Airlines was really first class. The flight attendants were the best we have ever experienced. Their dress was immaculate, they were very friendly and attentive and were there to make the flight as comfortable as possible plus cater to all requests."
Cons: "The food which was generally very bland and without any taste. Sauces with some of the dishes would be helpful."
Pros: "Out flight was not crowded so after take off we could take up all three seats. That was cool for a little nap. Crew was good. Everything was good."
Cons: "Everything was good."
Pros: "Movies and onboard games were good. So was the food. Crew took good care of us and the toilets were clean"
Cons: "We couldn't lower the seats backwards. It was horror for eight hours. And one little tv didn't work but they gave my wife a diferent, better seat because of that. We had a long layover, 12 hours, and they said we didn't have rights for anything. So we went to the city on our one because we didn't want to go on organized tour that we need to pay extra money"
Pros: "The flight from EWR to MSP was extremely quiet. No loud engine noises."
Cons: "We were vert disappointed at the Newark Airport - the Delta Club was closed and there had been no notification prior to arriving at the airport. I certainly missed that early morning coffee."
Pros: "Kosher snacks! Thank you. Screens and outlets at every seat. Safe, controlled Covid protocols including de-boarding. Excellent!"
Pros: "Delta flight took extra precaution to keep all passengers safe before during and after the flight. They communicate effectively during the flight. I will be flying Delta again and again."

Cons: "We arrived around 39 minutes early and the whole process was very smooth"

Cons: "The music on the plane was a bit much. Lol"

Cons: "The seat are not comfortable for a long flight, I felt I was on a city bus it's very cramped and tight and I'm a medium size person, totally not recommended for heavy people"
Cons: "The least leg room in any flight I’ve taken. We had requested vegetarian and the flight from Frankfurt to Nairobi gave our meal to other passengers.they told us we had to eat the best dish or nothing. This on an 8 hour flight."
Pros: "The flight barely had a bump and was on time. Service was terrific and, for a regular economy seat, I didn't feel too squished. The entire experience was highly positive."
Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "Maybe not have my luggage lost and get rebooked to a later flight for no reason"
Pros: "Just about brand new Airbus airplane, very nice! Everything worked, seats reasonably comfortable for a long flight. Boarding worked well by area of the plane, friendly crew."
Cons: "I travelled economy and found the seats not very enabling for big and tall folks as myself ! Other than that I highly recommend flying Lufthansa"
Pros: "Crew were great. Very friendly & helpful"
Cons: "Lufthansa really need to serve something better than high school cafeteria grade food"
Pros: "Good food, good drinks, good flight attendant crew"
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable. There were also no air vents"
Pros: "Cabin crew was extremely friendly, welcoming, and provided good inflight service."
Cons: "The boarding was very chaotic. Very few institutions or announcements made by ground crew. Passengers weren’t sure where to queue being that there were multiple gates for the A380-800 and were left asking each other and comparing boarding passes. Little to no air circulation in economy."
Pros: "The flight attendants were friendly. The seats were new. The movie selection was good."
Cons: "The scrambled eggs for breakfast appeared to be powered eggs, or overcooked eggs. The storage bins for the luggage were very small for the middle seats (aircraft was an Airbus A330-200). After several hours of flying, there was trash in the aisles and on the toilet floor. The toilets were dirty and not cleaned. Finally, the toilets ran out of paper towels and tissues with 3 hours to go in the flight, and they were never refilled. The flight attendants put a roll of toilet paper next the sink to use for your hands."
Pros: "flight attendant found me a seat away from the screaming babies."
Cons: "I was surrounded by about 6 babies. This is not acceptable for a long flight! I would like to have options as to where I sit. There should be a baby section where families pay more to be in a section on their own!!"
Pros: "Amazing crew, fast boarding."
Cons: "Uninspired food. I was served the same meals 30 years ago."
Cons: "my first flight overseas. friendly staff. movies ..headphones..pillow and blankets included. 2 beverages included with meal. only downside was paying for checked bag. looks like that is included on the return flight so that won't be and issue on the way home. no issues with carryons."
Cons: "The back of the plane was significantly warmer than the rest of the plane. Very little leg room."
Pros: "Boarding was easy, flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "Seats were snug, granted we had the less expensive tickets."
Cons: "On the Copenhagen-Milan leg, since I was in the cheap seats, even water cost; $3 for a bottle of water. They couldn't even offer a cup of water for free? False economy. And I was told that I had to pay for my luggage at the airport, then it was $120 for 1 bag. Ridiculous!"
Pros: "The movie section and food were very good"
Cons: "The temperature of the flight was out of control it was very hot for the full 9 hr there was something wrong with the plane and the crew was not addressing it."
Pros: "All good."
Cons: "Gluten free meal was selected and paid for before the flight, but for some reason the crew didn't have the option available for me once on board. Nevertheless, they tried to be their best. More drink's without extra charge. Follow Lufthansa service and all will be grand."
Pros: "service was great flight was on time luggage came on time"
Cons: "Upon landing in EWR on United, per my reservation on this site my connection was on SAS to Copenhagen. Upon arrival in EWR, I received an email from this site saying my SAS flight "may be canceled". I immediately headed to the terminal where SAS was and went into the lounge to speak to an agent. The women I spoke to could not have been more rude. She told me my flight was canceled and that she did not have access to any details because that was United's responsibility. I told her that could not be the case because my flight was on SAS so if they canceled the flight, I would like to understand what my options are given that I had a tight window upon arrival into my final destination into Dubrovnik so I could not be too late in landing outside of my original reservation. She told me that I had to talk to United and did not even acknowledge why there was a cancellation or anything other than the SAS flight I was on was cancelled. She barely even helped me to understand where my luggage was which I was very concerned would be lost given the issue with the flight cancellation. As a result of all of this, it turns out I was put onto a United flight that now had MORE connections. I had to now go to Frankfurt to Vienna to Dubrovnik, all with really tight connections AND now I no longer was on the same flight as my friend who I was traveling with. SAS did not help with any of this or care to assist in ANY way. They told me it was out of their hands and I had to talk to United. AWFUL service when SAS had cancelled the flight! I had no choice but to take the re-routed flights. I ended up running to my gates and barely catching all of my connections which made for a very stressful travel experience to start my long awaited vacation. After paying the high cost I did for my flight, I am extremely frustrated with my experience as I ended up having more connections, tight connections, awful customer service and a really stressful trip. This is NOT would I would expect for how much I paid and out of the quality of an airline. I would like to receive some type of compensation for the extreme inconvenience of landing 3+ hours after my original arrival time, being broken up with my friend who I was traveling with, not being given any options for my travel, terrible customer service assistance, and no acknowledgement from SAS to help me in any way."
Pros: "On time and clean airline."
Cons: "Not helpful with stroller. Wanted us to sign off that they were not responsible for if stroller broke while handling it. Insane. They said it “might “ to big even though they didn’t know what measurements would be too big. We’ve flown for the last 3 years with this stroller but different airlines and never heard of such thing. (Since it’s the smallest city mini double stroller there is and folds flat- super small!) first time we flew SAS all. We didn’t sign anything and gate checked it and all was fine but some incompetent crew at check in. Not very helpful finding seats with all four of us. Put us in different rows. Could work on their customer service for sure."
