Istanbul is a fascinating travel destination; with over 2,500 years of history, culture, and traditions, beautiful landmarks, vibrant nightlife, and breathtaking views, this city is a fast-paced cultural melting pot you can’t miss.
So when travelling to Istanbul New Airport, if you want to make your way to Istanbul’s city centre, you have two different transportation options: you can either take a taxi or private transfer, the bus or the metro. As the airport is located in the northern area of Arnavutköy, it should take around 50 minutes to reach the city centre by taxi. Taking the metro is a slightly quicker way to travel, as it takes just 40 minutes to reach the city centre. Finally, the public bus will take at least 1 hour and 10 minutes to get from the new Istanbul Airport to the city, making it the slowest transfer option.Welcome Pickups offers meet and greet services and a friendly introduction to Istanbul at the same price as a regular taxi.
