  • Istanbul has two international airports, one on the European side and one on the Asian side of the city. Atatürk Airport is located in the European side and much closer to the major tourist and historic attractions, such as the Hagia Sophia or Basilica Cistern. Sabiha Gökcen Airport is on the Asian side and a good choice for those staying in hotel on the eastern side of the city. It is also close to the Formula 1 race circuit (about 10 minutes away).
  • Kuala Lumpur International Airport has various lounges and spa facilities scattered around the airport, including an Emirates Lounge, Dynasty Lounge or Movie Lounge, among many more. For even more relaxation, travellers can also check out the Wellness Spa located in terminal 2 (KLIA 2), where you can enjoy massages and even a hair treatment.
  • You may have some time to kill before boarding your flight and with children, this can be stressful. Thankfully, Kuala Lumpur International Airport has baby changing facilities and a play area located in the Main Terminal Building at the Contact Pier, where children can play until it is time to board.
  • If you need to relax and freshen up before your flight, the Airport Lounge at Sama-Sama Hotel in Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL) can be accessed for RM 78, and has showers (including towels) as well as complimentary food and drink.
  • For lower transfer times to central Istanbul, fly to Ataturk International Airport (IST). It is located roughly 20 km from the city centre, compared to 45 km for Sabiha Gokcen International Airport (SAW).
  • To avoid roaming fees in Turkey, you can purchase a pay-as-you-go SIM card at the airport from the Turkcell, Vodafone, or Türk Telekom shops.
