Istanbul Airport

  • The record-breaking Istanbul Airport opened in October 2018 and is located on the European side of Istanbul, 35km from the city centre. Boasting an architectural design that combines forward-looking and functional elements, its main terminal is inspired by the rich cultural heritage of İstanbul and reflects the city's mosques, baths, domes and many other historic structures. Look out for motives from Turkish - Islamic art around the main terminal building, adding to the grandeur and depth of its spectacular design.
