Flying from Istanbul

Sabiha Gökçen International Airport is one of two airports serving the Turkish city of Istanbul, so it is important that passengers flying from Istanbul make sure they are at the right airport for their flight.

Located 22 miles from the centre of the city on the Asian side, this modern, efficient departure point serves international destinations across the globe and is a relaxed and memorable start to any journey. Staff are friendly and focused on delivering a truly outstanding passenger experience.

Parking and transportation

There are regular buses between the airport, the nearest Metro station and the city centre, and take approximately 30-45 minutes, depending on the time of day. Note that during particularly busy times that journey time can increase. 

Taxis are plentiful, but it is advisable to ask your hotel concierge to book one for you so that you are taken to the airport in a metered, official taxi. SAWKOOP taxis offer fixed-price city and hotel transfers to the airport. 

An alternative route is by water bus, and the IDO Sea Bus Port is five miles away and provides links to other parts of the city and further afield. Parking is provided by a four-storey car park next to the terminal, which has capacity for 4,700 vehicles. Spaces fill up quickly.

Passengers flying from Istanbul with Qatar Airways will depart from the main terminal Departures area. It is well signposted and has 112 check-in desks and 24 online check-in counters. 

There are a number of VIP and business/first-class passenger lounges. 

Be aware that security at the airport is particularly tight, so allow at least one and a half to two hours before your flight is due to board to check in and clear security and customs checks.

Facilities and amenities

Apart from the VIP lounges, there are spacious waiting areas for passengers that are comfortable. Mother and baby rooms are available, as are prayer rooms for devotions. 

Wi-Fi internet connectivity is available throughout the airport for a fee, and there are fixed internet kiosks in both Arrivals and Departures.

Tourist attractions
