Istanbul sits in the middle of two worlds. Straddling both Europe and Asia, the city is a hub for international travel. Istanbul’s location makes it an ideal gateway to the rest of the world, with millions of visitors passing through every year to make their way to their final destination. Istanbul New Airport (IST) is the main international airport serving Istanbul. It’s located around 84km from Sabiha Gökçen. A new high-speed train will connect the two airports in the coming years, but for now, there are two transfer options: a taxi or two buses.Welcome Pickups offers meet and greet services and a friendly introduction to Istanbul at the same price as a regular taxi.
