Sabiha Gokchen

The distance between the two airports is about 70 kilometers. Sabiha Gokchen is located in the Asian part of the city. To reach it, you have to cross the whole city from edge to edge by public transport. The minimum time it takes 2.5 – 3 hours. But taking into account traffic jams, it can increase. It is necessary to take this into account when connecting your flights to Istanbul and Kayseri. Istanbul has a very well-developed metro network, but unfortunately, the line to the Sabiha Gokcen Airport is only stretching. In the near future, it will be possible to get from one airport to another very quickly, but so far we cannot do without a land piece of the route.

The options to get from Ataturk Airport to Sabiha Gokcen Airport are mass, including ferries, taxis, buses and metrobus. I will tell you about the proven method that I have experienced. Havatas shuttle buses run regularly from various parts of the city to Sabiha Gokcen Airport. They run every half hour, from early morning until late at night. For example, Havatas buses leave from Taksim Square, Yenisahra Station and Yenisahra Square and Kadikoy Square. Shuttles from Taksim Square to Sabiha Gokcen Airport start walking from 3:30 am to 1:00 am daily with an interval of 30 minutes Back (from the airport to Taksim Square) – from 04:00 am to 01:00 am, also at intervals of 30 minutes. The journey time from Taksim Square to the airport is about 1.5 hours, the fare is 15 liras.
