Most travellers looking for Turkey flights will opt to arrive and depart from the Ataturk International Airport in the popular city of Istanbul.
The country’s primary International airport, Ataturk International Airport is located approximately 24kms from the centre of Istanbul. From Canada the airport is served by a host of Charter and Scheduled Air Carriers including: Air Canada, Air Transat, British Airways, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Air France, Lufthansa, Delta Airlines and of course Turkish Airlines. At this time the only airline offering direct flights from Canada to Istanbul is the country’s National Air Carrier, Turkish Airlines.
