Istanbul airport (IST) offers a lot of facilities to keep yourself busy while in transit.
Istanbul Airport, also known as Istanbul New Airport, (IST IATA) is the primary of two passenger airports serving the city of Istanbul, (the other being Sabiha Gökçen on the Asian side). It is 35 km north of Istanbul on the European side of the city. Just about every major city in Europe (including European Russia) has a direct flight to and from IST, and there are extensive connections across the Middle East, with destinations to the Far East, Africa and North America also served.
Many of these are operated by the national carrier Turkish Airlines, either itself or via code-share agreements
THINGS TO DO ON A LAYOVER
Since there is only one terminal built so far, with no rail or bus transfer system in place, you will probably have to walk everywhere. It can take quite a while to walk between gates, especially if they are an opposite end of the huge terminal with its long concourses, so allocate sufficient time for connections. Estimated times to walk from the central terminal area to furthest gates at the end of each concourse (gates A11, B15, D17, F16 and G11) are around 15-20 minutes.
Treating your taste buds to food from several restaurants and cafes.
Unwind in a Lounge
Enjoy good food, watch TV, catch up on your news in a quieter and comfortable environment. There are a number of lounges available in all terminals.
Shopping for apparels, accessories, perfumes, cosmetics, toys, souvenirs, electronics, and jewellery at the duty-free shops for reasonable prices.
Up to 1 hour of free Wi-Fi internet service is provided. Users must register with their mobile phone number to receive a code via SMS for activation. For those without a mobile phone, access codes can be obtained from kiosks by providing your passport number.
Istanbul Airport has installed 25 sleeping pods for passengers who want to rest before, after or between flights. The “iGA Sleepod’’ service can be rented out on an hourly basis.
