Flying to Istanbul

Istanbul is served by two international airports:
• Atatürk, located on the European continent, 24 kilometers west of the city center, is the fifth-busiest airport in Europe and the eighteenth-busiest in the world.
Sabiha Gökçen International located on the Asian side of the city, 45 kilometers (28 mi) southeast of the city center, is dominated by low-cost carriers and in 2012 was named it the world’s fastest-growing airport.
