Waiting and spending time: The airline that offers a free trip to Istanbul | Israel today


Turkish Airlines offers a free trip to Istanbul for those waiting for a connecting flight at the airport.

Turkish Airlines, the largest airline in Turkey and one of the largest airlines in the world, has started offering its passengers a special and interesting service.

Anyone who flies with the company via Istanbul to a continuation destination, with a connection (continuation flight) of 24-6 hours, will be entitled to a completely free trip to Istanbul during the connection hours.

How It Works?

If, for example, you fly with Turkish Airlines to Thailand, the USA or any other destination, and the wait at the Turkish airport exceeds 6 hours, you can arrive at the hotel desk located at the international arrival hall at Istanbul Airport, where you can join one of the tours departing.

The airline will arrange transportation and a guided tour that will take you among the most recognizable and special places the city has to offer, including getting off the shuttle and touring the markets and streets of Istanbul.

The company offers between 5-4 tours a day that will go on different routes, when the duration of the tour varies and so do the departure hours.

There are tours that last three and a half hours and are suitable for those whose connection lasts only 7-6 hours, and there are tours that last 9 and a half hours, for those whose connection is longer and allows a longer tour.

Of course there are also 8-6 hour tours, all depending on the waiting times you have in Istanbul on the way to the next destination.

It is important to emphasize that the service is suitable for transit passengers on international flights only (those who stop in Istanbul on the way to the next destination) and not for those whose travel destination is Istanbul.

It is not necessary to pre-register for the tour, but to get to the point mentioned above and check which tours are offered on the same day.

It is best to arrive at least half an hour before the tour starts.

More details about the service can be found on the dedicated website.

In addition, those who choose the long trip will also be entitled to a meal at a restaurant at the expense of the company.

All the tours that go out are accompanied by a guide who will perform the tutorials in English.

It is important to remember that the level of travel warning to Istanbul has dropped from level 4 to level 3 after a period when it was considered very dangerous to travel - and is in the same situation as Dubai, for example, which is also at level 3 of travel warning.
