Plan your trip well and don’t miss out on the chance to discover Istanbul!

Take advantage of the opportunity for a stopover in Istanbul when flying with Turkish Airlines to discover the city. With a stopover of 24 hours or more you can use the time to enjoy Istanbul’s unmatched views and endless opportunities for fun to make your travel experience even better.

What is a stopover?

A stopover is when you have 24 hours or more between connecting flights. For example, on a series of flights like Frankfurt–Istanbul–Bangkok for which you stay 24 hour or more in Istanbul, spending the night and flying off to Bangkok the next day, then that is a stopover. You can use this opportunity to discover Istanbul and make your travel experience even more enjoyable.

Come and see Istanbul!

Istanbul is a city that displays the legacies of Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman cultures blended in to the modern city where east meets west. Istanbul shows visitors its Byzantine and Ottoman past through its historical buildings like the waterfront mansions along the Bosporus, the Hagia Sophia, and Topkapı Palace along with the coastal neighborhoods along the Golden Horn. Despite the Galata, Beyoğlu, Üsküdar, and Kadıköy districts’ long history of settlement, they have a youthful vibrancy and colorful atmosphere full of life while still maintaining a connection to tradition and the past.
