Car Hire and Driving Guide Istanbul Airport

Istanbul New Airport, officially known as Istanbul Airport, is a newer and larger airport located in the Arnavutköy district of Istanbul, Turkey. It officially opened in October 2018 and is intended to serve as Istanbul's primary international airport.

Driving out of Istanbul New Airport (Istanbul Airport) can be relatively straightforward, but it depends on your familiarity with the area and the traffic conditions. Here's some information to help you:

Distance from Istanbul City Center: Istanbul Airport is located about 40-45 kilometers (25-28 miles) northwest of the city center of Istanbul. The exact travel time can vary depending on traffic conditions, but it typically takes around 30-60 minutes by car to reach the city center, depending on the time of day.

Driving Conditions: The road leading out of Istanbul Airport is typically in good condition, as it's a modern and well-maintained highway. The E-5 and E-6 highways provide easy access to and from the airport. Roads in Turkey generally have good signage in both Turkish and English, making it easier for travelers to navigate.

Signage: Istanbul Airport has clear signage within the airport premises to guide you to various destinations, including the city center and nearby towns. As you exit the airport and enter the highway, you'll find road signs indicating the directions to different areas of Istanbul.

Traffic: Traffic conditions in Istanbul can vary greatly depending on the time of day. Rush hours, especially during the morning and evening, can result in heavy traffic congestion. It's a good idea to check real-time traffic updates or use a GPS navigation system to plan your route and avoid congested areas if possible. The traffic situation may be more manageable outside of peak hours.

Nearest Cities/Towns: The nearest towns and districts to Istanbul Airport include Arnavutköy, Başakşehir, and Küçükçekmece. Istanbul itself is the nearest major city, and you can reach various parts of Istanbul from the airport, such as Sultanahmet (the historic center) and Taksim Square.

It's essential to plan your transportation in advance to ensure a smooth and hassle-free journey from Istanbul Airport to your desired destination in the city or surrounding areas. Traffic conditions can change, so it's advisable to stay updated and be prepared for potential delays during peak travel times.
