I was just thinking along similar lines. The airport will be a nightmare in winter, I will certainly be doing everything I can to avoid using it during the winter months. Why on earth would someone would ignore such warnings from people that know what they are talking about is beyond me. xx

Re: Istanbul airport

Just had a chat with a guy I know, who also added that in about October time it will be right on the path of mass migrating birds, they were warned but for some reason ignored that.
He knows a few who have been through from international to domestic and its a long way especially if the travellators are not working which apparently is often, you can hire an electric beep beep cart, don't know the price though.
He says the interior finish of the airport is up to typical Turkish standards, silicon and tape.
He also says the domestic business lounge is just about up to par with a typical paid lounge and not up to the standard at the old airport.
He is going through on Wednesday so hopefully he will update.

Re: Istanbul airport

My friend is at the airport now, these are from the miles and smiles lounge, he says so far the airport is great and he is actually enjoying waiting for his onward flight, he also says the food is great and there are some fine wines to be had. This makes the escape lounge at Manchester look like a cafe

There is also a TK Business Class lounge as well

Re: Istanbul airport

Looks good, we had an Elite card back in the early 2000s when I travelled a lot. The CIP lounge was really useful, much better than the one in Manchester.

Re: Istanbul airport

Turkish Airlines will be opening 2 more exclusive lounges later this year, in addition to the ones already available.

Re: Istanbul airport

We always like to use those types of lounges. We have HSBC Premier (Turkish cards only accepted now, which we have) Will the new lounges allow us to use them, on payment ? It doesn't mention it in their ad' ?

Re: Istanbul airport

This one pictured is miles and smiles elite card holders up, depends on your status miles on star alliance flights, I would be surprised if it is also a partner lounge as they usually have their own.

Re: Istanbul airport

All looks lovely, but unfortunately doesn't take away the fact that come winter, there will be big problems with birds and weather. xx
