Directions for your Transfer from Istanbul Airport

Istanbul airport is the newest super airport in Istanbul. This airport took over all flight paths from Ataturk airport and now functions as the major flight hub for travellers entering the Middle East and Asia. Istanbul airport is located around 44km from the centre of Istanbul. To get there, your driver will take the main highway D020, keeping in the right-hand lane until he takes the ramp to F.S.M. Köprüsü/Kadıköy/Ankara. Your driver will then merge back onto highway E80. He will then take the exit toward Kağıthane/Sütlüce, cross the river and Imrahor Cd, and continue onto Beşiktaş-Kağıthane Tüneli. This will lead you into the Taksim area, where your driver will use the local roads to take you to your hotel.

The Cost of an Istanbul Airport Transfer

There’s no set cost for an Istanbul airport taxi to the city centre of Istanbul. Instead, your journey will be calculated using a taximeter based on the distance travelled. The total price will be around 30€ during the day and 35€ at night. However, due to the intense traffic in Istanbul and extra charges for things such as waiting time and luggage, you could end up paying much more. The only way to have the peace of mind of a flat rate fee is to book your Istanbul airport transfers in advance.
