The easiest and the most modern gateway to Istanbul is Ataturk Airport international terminal where most visitors land first. It is located in Yesilkoy, on the European side of Istanbul and just 28 kilometres to the city centre (Sirkeci).

The second and less popular airport of Istanbul is Sabiha Gokcen Airport at Kurtkoy on the Asian side of the city.

You can travel between Istanbul's airports and the city centre by airport bus, city bus, taxi, Metro and tram, shuttle van or private transfer. Please, check this link for info on Public Transport.
