FAQs - booking Türkiye flights

  • Are there nonstop flights from the US to Turkey?

    You can get nonstop flights to Turkey from any major international airport in the US, including New York (JFK), Los Angeles (LAX), and San Francisco (SFO). Most nonstop flights head into IST and are offered by Turkish Airlines. For those flying from the West Coast, nonstop flights from SFO are faster and much cheaper than those from LAX.

  • What are the common stopover options for flights from the US to Sabiha Gokcen International Airport (SAW)?

    All flights from the US to SAW have at least one layover en route that varies depending on your airline, origin city, and destination airport. Most airlines flying from New York John (JFK) have common stops in Munich (MUC), Brussels (BRU), Milan (MXP), Dubai (DBX), Amsterdam (AMS), and Doha (DIA) depending on your airline. Qatar Airways and Turkish Airlines are some of the major airlines that offer one-stop flights from San Francisco to SAW with a stop in Doha, Paris (CGD), Frankfurt (FRA), or Munich.

  • Which airport should I fly into to be closer to Istanbul’s landmarks?

    Since most tourist hotspots, historical attractions, iconic restaurants, and popular markets exist on the European side of Istanbul, flying into IST puts you much closer to Istanbul’s landmarks. The Hava Bus boarded from the transportation floor should quickly get you to downtown, Taksim, Sultanahmet, or Kadikoy.

  • What is the best airport to fly into Turkey for flights from the US?

    Flights from the US to Turkey usually land at Ankara Esenboga Airport (ESB), Antalya International Airport, Sabiha Gokcen International Airport, and Istanbul Airport. Of all these airports, Istanbul stands out when you consider flights from the US. Not only does the airport receive direct flights from the US, but its amenities also put it ahead of the other airports in the country.

  • Which is the main airport in Istanbul?

    Istanbul is served by two high-functioning international airports, IST and SAW. IST is considered the main airport for several reasons. First, it is the larger and more modern airport and most nonstop flights from the US head into IST. Secondly, IST offers passengers premium lounges, shorter immigration queues, and many restaurant options. Third, you'll get more domestic flight connections from IST than SAW.

  • Is Istanbul International Airport accessible?

    Yes. If you're a passenger with reduced mobility, you can request wheelchair assistance services through your airline. The airport also offers accessible wheelchair-accessible restrooms, stair-free options, and accessible drinking fountains. If you make a reservation for special assistance services at least 48 hours before you travel, you will get the service in less than 15 minutes on the day you fly. Just make a notification using any assistant call phone at the airport. Passengers who arrive at the airport without making a reservation may have to wait for up to 45 minutes to get this service.

  • Will I find cheap public transport at airports in Turkey?

    The two main airports, IST and SAW, have various public transport options for easy access to downtown Istanbul. Taxis are available 24-hours, and there’s a bus from both airports. The transportation floor at IST is two levels below the terminal building’s main floor, and it’s where you’ll purchase bus tickets, while at SAW, you’ll find the buses just outside the main terminal building, and tickets can be purchased on board, so have the local currency.

  • Is there a hotel at Istanbul Airport?

    Yes. YOTEL Istanbul Hotel operates in two locations within the airport, one is before security while the other is in the secure zone of the airport. The first is next to Door 7’s entrance Landslide of the Terminal. The hotel has about 277 sleep cabins and it also offers day rooms in 4-hour blocks. Booking a stay here gives you access to self-service drinks and food and a fitness center. The hotel in the secure zone has about 174 sleep cabins and also offers day rooms.

  • Which airport should I fly into to be close to Turkey’s coastal cities?

    Those flying to Turkey to enjoy its beautiful Mediterranean beaches should fly into Antalya Airport. It is one of Turkey’s international airports with two international terminals and one domestic terminal, and AYT receives flights from the US.

  • How long is the flight to Türkiye?

    An average nonstop flight from the United States to Türkiye takes 14h 41m, covering a distance of 5881 miles. The most popular route is New York - Istanbul with an average flight time of 9h 45m.

Flight was delayed. Had to get rebooked. Diamond medallion but stuck in a crappy seat. Rebooked flight then got delayed again. Then when we finally boarded, we waited another hour for a new crew. Then landed in JFK and sat for another 40 minutes waiting for a crew to come to the gate to be able to deplane. Hot mess all around, which unfortunately is becoming the norm for Delta

It was terrible! Two hour delays, poor in flight service, made us check our carry on even though there was plenty of overhead storage

Terrible flight Delayed for over an hour without a reason Told all over head storage was full. It was not. Made to check our bags. What a terrible experience. Fly American.

Older plane and it came with Fleas and flea bites!

My seat was moved closer to the front of the cabin since I had requested wheelchair assistance to the gate.

Rough day of travel all the way around. Wrong info given to us multiple times and mistakes in their booking making our trip 10 hours longer than planned. I’m bummed because I fly Delta all the time and love them. Mistakes happen. Just bummed that this was a rare trip our whole family was traveling together.

Still room for improvement in food and beverage selection: bring back Cognac

Flight was canceled so it was not a great experience. Boarded, then deboarded. Delayed, boarded a new plane then deboarded the 2nd plane and flight was canceled. Then booked a fight to Rome and took a train to Venice the next day. Lost an entire day +

My seat was changed at the last minute and I was moved to the last row, right next to the bathroom despite selecting my seat well in advance. I was also made to check my carry on due to space but when I got on the plane there was significant empty overhead space. Picking up my carry on from the luggage carousel added time to my trip which had already been extended due to delay.

All good on Delta's part. Passengers could be a little more courteous to each other.

Request for “strict vegan” as in the airlines meal selection was not strictly adhered to. My two travelling partners with their Asian vegetarian meals said that their meals were not Asian.

We waited 4 hours in the flight to take off but then the flight was cancelled.

It was ok. This flight was for my 80 year old grandparents and when they arrived to Beirut no wheelchair (as requested) was waiting for them. My grandpa had to pick up his own luggage, he got soooo tired. No one to help him as we submitted the request ahead of time

Terrible seats are very uncomfortable and narrow. Really hard time eating and painful buttons.. crew was very rud not allow anyone to stand not even to go to the toilets

Overnight flight in the old style Business class, but still very good.

I was in business class, without the business class amenities. Large seat with lots of legroom, but no TV or bed. Food was okay, but I did enjoy the Turkish red wine.

Excellent service and comfort from the moment you check in. Flight crew is hyper focused on making passengers comfortable and at ease. It’s like a flying hotel!

Only chicken as a meat dish through out the flight

Nothing really was great as such. Seen other no name airlines perform better.

Quality of service on board was very inconsistent. FA service primarily seemed robotic and they barely engaged with passengers

Lufthansa placed a 300 lb passenger in the aisle seat and I was stuck in the middle leaning sideways with no arm rest or ability to sit up straight and fully use my seat (due to encroachment-the seats are very narrow) the entire flight.

My flight was delayed for a whole day, so I lost a day of my vacation.

I was refused to used the toilet closes to my seat and had to go to the back of the plane .. it was difficult for me I’m a wheelchair customer

East Lounge in Denver was terrible. Turning away active military on orders? Really? Sad.

Miserable. Active military on orders turned away from Lounge because not in uniform. This is completely contrary to United’s online lounge access policy. Sad that employees aren’t trained better. This is not the United Airlines my parents used to regularly fly with.

Was a good flight , well served by the flight attendants. Boarding went smoothly, flight was smooth.

Too many canceled flights and kept my wife and I separated on alternate flights. We did not fly out of Denver. We paid a lot of money for the seats we wanted and now that money is gone and we did not sit together. That being said, the many agents were very friendly and did everything possible to help us.

Terrible Initial delay for almost an hour before boarding and departing in Seattle. Then a “customary” wait on the tarmac in Newark after landing for half an hour. I call it customary because it happens almost every time I land in Newark. I do t know if it’s Newark or United airline but it’s a travesty . I use Newark because it’s closer than jfk to where I live but am strongly considering switching because of extremely poor in time performance and Condé and delay after landing

Everything could’ve been better. The boarding process was a little tedious, and then they put me in a seat with the window did not open, which gave me a very uncomfortable feeling considering I had told them that. The entertainment system didn’t work for quite some time and because I had to heavily medicate myself to not have a panic attack I missed dinner and barely ate anything on the flight. Not to mention the religious man next to me, praying mostly and humming the whole flight.

The boarding process was delayed and the miscommunication of what seats are broken

Leg room is good, food is average, crew is not friendly

The crew was amazing! They were attentive and super polite, clearly very well trained in customer service. Very well run flight altogether!

Gate was difficult to know. Flight number from Lufthansa directed to a different flight number by SunXpress, which was different from my actual flight per the airport. Multiple people (at least 3 others) were lost with me at the airport in Munich (I didn't know them) trying to get to a different terminal. Too many confusing signs, and no one could help. When I found some Staff members (surprisingly difficult) told me "you have to figure it out." Yeah, that's why I'm asking and walking around in circles. Thought I would miss my flight, turns out I had plenty of time, but I couldn't figure it out for the first hour. 90% airport's fault, not SunExpress.

Hated the food. Flew many business class flights on this flight little privacy should be more secluded Staff was great

It was horrible!! The plane was old and outdated. The AC was not adjustable and got me and my daughter sick because we couldn’t redirect it away from us. Absolutely no leg space. The food was garbage. Horrific experience! Shame on Lufthansa to use such trash airplanes.

Getting boarding pass for international connected flight was a hassle. Huge libe to get boarding pass after two connected international flight is excessive to put someone on stress. They should provide online checking for all flights

This was not a UA flight. This was Lufthansa. Good experience overall

Very bad flights I lost my luggage for both sides

This time it was not good. The plane was not clean. It had a bad smell as if the cabin was not cleaned properly. The small sit pillows were dirty and blankets (even though they were packaged) did mot smell clean. Decaf coffee was disgusting and tasted like instant coffee.

After a bad experience of traveling with United airlines long time ago I decided to give them a second chance. And again it was bad. The flight from Jacksonville to Washington was almost 4 hours delayed. Due to that my flights to Munich and Warsaw had to be rescheduled. As a result I had to travel through Frankfurt. And my checked in luggage did not arrive from Frankfurt to Warsaw with me. Warsaw was not my final destination and I had to figure out a way to deliver my luggage to my destination. On top of everything my Delsey luggage got 2 cracks. Is anybody going to be responsible for that???

Access to movies was nice, food not bad, and landing was smooth. Cramming us in like sardines is not fun. A little more space to bend down to get a bag or not touch my neighbors arm because we’re so close would be better for a 9 hour flight. Whomever designed the seating and you, who bought these planes, clearly are NOT interested in customers’ comfort. So stop pretending you do. Also, if you want traveler’s to check their bags so there is space to store carry one, don’t charge so much to check baggage. Seriously?!

The leg room on the plane was the smallest I have encountered in all my travels. Ił only 5’4

We got our seats and was surprised at the half empty plane, so had a very good hostess and we enjoyed the whole flight back home, so the only thing we had to wait for was the passenger assistance that was not there and had to wait about 20 mins on the jetway.

The only issue I had with the flight is that dinner took a long time to come even regardless of the turbulence we experienced. The flight attendants kept disappearing while serving people and kept some people waiting. Which caused them to forget to serve me some tea. It was resolved eventually. Just a small complaint. Maybe there's other reasons but overall the flight wasn't bad.

The check in lady was the best I have seen at JFK she was very nice

The perfect jet stream back saved over 1 hour in the air.

Crew could not even try to accommodate my food request. Phone Charging USB thing was not working.

They cancelled the flight from Dallas to London and rebooked following day causing a lot of pain

Baggage handling was very poor, I didn't get my luggage for 4 day's on way back. Neither a responsible person to answer my call. Kindly see my call log on lost luggage reference no BOMBA41916. all details are recorded. Difficult to convince me to fly once again. Sorry for harsh words.

Every flight was late in arrival, last was late in departure and late in arrival, then lost our luggage!
