ImageIstanbul has two international airports namely the main Atatürk International Airport located in the Yeşilköy district on the European side, about 24 kilometres from the city center; and the smaller Sabiha Gökçen International Airport located in the Kurtköy district on the Asian side. The Sabiha Gökçen Airport services only a few airlines and there are just a few flights at a time.
Transportation leaving the airport includes buses to Taksim Square, which run daily from 0600 and every half hour from 0700 to 2330 hours. The fare is inexpensive (about 3 YTL) and the ride takes about 50 minutes. For more information you can call 0212-663-0609.
 A bus also takes travelers to Bakirköy and Bostancı. Buses to Akmerkez ( Etiler ) run daily from 0700 to 2100 hours every hour. Buses to Kozyatağı run daily between 0400 and 2200 hours. Taxi services can be found outside the arrivals area of the airports.


A taxi is the easiest way to and from Ataturk Airport. The fare is about 20 YTL and the trip takes about 35 minutes to the city.  Sabiha Gokcen Airport is severely lacking in transport infrastructure.
A Havas (Turkish Airlines) bus goes into the city round the clock but is infrequent at night. Taxis should be avoided at all costs as they are far too expensive.
