Flights to Istanbul

Cairo International Airport

Located 14 miles from central Cairo, Cairo International Airport offers a wide range of domestic and international flights from Cairo. Air France, EgyptAir, Nile Air, and Signapore Air are a few of the companies that handle the hundreds of daily flights. As the airport is one of the busiest on the continent, getting a flight is sometimes difficult. If you need help, visit Orbitz.com, which gives you access to hundreds of flights departing from this airport.

Parking at the Airport

Cairo International Airport has nine parking areas and more than 3,000 parking spots. One of the largest parking areas is reserved for long-term parking, which is your best choice if you wish to leave Cairo for seven days or more. Parking in a short-term lot can cost up to twice as much because these lots charge by the hour.

Transportation and Cabs

The cabs handling trips to the airport are different from the cabs found in other countries. Instead of relying on a meter, the cab driver will suggest a price to drive you to the airport. You pay the fare upfront. You might prefer the airport shuttle bus, which makes eight stops around Cairo, including one downtown. The bus has space for dozens of passengers, and it makes stops at the airport several times a day.

Dining at Restaurants

McDonald's and Burger King are two of the well-known chains located at the airport. You can also find local chains such as Bill Bentley's, Hippo Bar and Grill, and Puro Gusto. As long as you have a few minutes to spare, you have time to grab something to eat. With so many flights from Cairo leaving daily, you can use Orbitz.com to ensure that you get a seat on the right one.

Istanbul Area Airports

Orbitz.com offers cheap flights to Istanbul and vacation packages that let you explore this fascinating city, which spans two separate continents. The main airport for the city, Istanbul Atatürk International Airport, is located on the European side of the city, about 24 kilometers from the downtown area.

Istanbul Atatürk International Airport handles flights from over 70 airlines, including British Airways, United Airlines, Turkish Airlines, and Air France. Sabiha Gokcen International Airport serves over 30 airlines, including Sky Airlines, EasyJet, Turkish Airlines, and SunExpress.

Getting to the Airport

From Istanbul Atatürk International Airport, arriving visitors can opt to take the metro train or sea bus into Istanbul. The Sabiha Gokcen airport shuttle makes regular trips from Sabiha Gokcen International Airport to various points within the city, and it costs 10 euro per person. Visitors can also get into the city from Sabiha Gokcen International Airport via sea bus or public bus. Both airports are also accessible via taxi.

Weather Conditions in Istanbul

In the summer, high temperatures average around 82 degrees Fahrenheit in June and July and drop to lows of around 65 degrees Fahrenheit at night. Rain is uncommon in the summer, although the humidity remains high during the summer months. Winters are often cold and snowy. In January, temperatures average between 37 to 47 degrees Fahrenheit. Spring and fall tend to be mild, and the bargain prices offered during these seasons make them ideal for a visit.

Vacationing in Istanbul

Take in a bit of history with a visit to Topkapi Palace, the Grand Bazaar, or one of the many Ottoman mosques scattered throughout the city. Archaeology museums are another popular attraction, or you can get tickets for a cruise on the Bosphorus to get a view of the city from the water.
