About Istanbul Airport

Istanbul Airport (IST) first opened in 2018. It is one of the world’s busiest airports, serving as a major hub for Africa, Asia, and Europe. The airport is located north of Istanbul’s city center, on the European side of the city. 

Istanbul is an intriguing city where eastern and western cultures merge. You’ll find incredible buildings, including palaces, mosques, and more, adorned with lavish details, from ceramics to sculptures. Visit historical sites, museums, and wander the city’s lively streets. Shop for locally crafted textiles and decor items to take home as souvenirs. Don’t forget to sample the delicious cuisine.

For travelers visiting Istanbul on a layover, the opportunity to venture into the city is alluring. Make sure you have a window of at least 8 hours, as traffic can be very congested between the city and the airport. 

Since the streets and public transportation of Istanbul are crowded, it’s important to be vigilant about pickpockets. For your convenience, arrange for short-term luggage storage with a Bounce partner, so you only carry the essentials while you’re out and about.

Fun Fact: Istanbul is the only city in the world that sits on two continents at once (Asia and Europe).
