Beginning the Trip in Istanbul

Located nine miles from downtown Istanbul, the airport has 81 airlines operating from its terminals. Over 6,000 flights go through the gates each week, making it a bustling, major European hub.

To accommodate the traffic, the Turkish government created a state-of-the-art airport full of customer comforts. The International Departure Floor of the airport has cafes for quick meals, buffets, lounges and eateries offering several international cuisines. You can shop for items that you may have forgotten at home at the terminal as well.

There are several ways to get to the airport. About $21 will get you a taxi ride from downtown Istanbul to Istanbul Ataturk Airport. You can also take public transit in the form of the metro train for under $1.00. If you take your own car to the airport, Ataturk Airport has a few options to choose from. You can stash the car in the covered garage for $16 a day or valet park as well for an additional tip. The open-air economy lot is also available for a little more than $12 a day or $85 a month. All lots are secured to give you piece of mind while you travel.

Getting to New York

Although New York has two airports at which travelers can land, your flight will most likely end up at JFK International Airport. LaGuardia Airport in the Queens borough of New York serves mostly domestic flights and flights to and from Canada and the Caribbean. lets you tailor your hotel search with this in mind.

A New York Getaway

JFK International Airport is located 15 miles southeast of downtown New York on Jamaica Bay. The nearly 5,000-acre airport served about 5.3 million passengers in 2010 alone, making it larger than Istanbul Ataturk.

Once you leave the airport, there are a few options for getting to your destination. A taxi will run you about $45 to the downtown or Manhattan area of New York. Shuttles cost more, often over $100. This is the JFK-Manhattan flat fee, so the only extra charges might be for a tip or for an additional stop along the way. Take a JFK AirTrain bus into town for $15.75 with an additional $5 to enter the subway system if your destination warrants further transport. The hotel shuttle is also an option. Many hotels offer a free shuttle ride from the airport if you reserve the ride in advance. If you choose to rent a car, be aware of the notorious traffic that congests the city each day and the expensive parking situation.
