Istanbul : Introduction

Would you like to charter a luxury private jet or helicopter to Istanbul, in Turkey? Whether you want to fly to Istanbul by executive jet for a vacation or a business trip, AEROAFFAIRES can take you there!


Istanbul : two continents, one city


Istanbul is a city located in Turkey, at the crossroads of Europe and Asia, and has a rich cultural and historical heritage. It is the largest city in Turkey and the fifth-largest city in the world, with a population of over 15 million people. Istanbul has been a capital city for three different empires: the Roman Empire, the Byzantine Empire, and the Ottoman Empire.


Some of the most iconic landmarks in Istanbul include the Hagia Sophia, a former church and mosque that is now a museum; the Blue Mosque, a stunningly beautiful mosque with six minarets; and the Topkapi Palace, the former residence of the Ottoman sultans. Other popular tourist attractions include the Grand Bazaar, a historic market where you can find a variety of goods; the Bosphorus Strait, which separates Europe and Asia; and the Galata Tower, a medieval tower with panoramic views of the city.


Istanbul is also known for its cuisine, which is a blend of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern flavors. Some of the most popular dishes include kebabs, meze, baklava, and Turkish delight. The city is also famous for its coffee, which is served in small cups and is very strong.


Which airport to fly to Istanbul by private jet ?


After a flight chartered by AEROAFFAIRES, you will arrive at one of the two main airports that are suitable for private jets:


  • Istanbul Airport (LTFM/IST): It is the main international airport of Istanbul, located on the European side of the city. It has a dedicated terminal for private jets and is equipped with modern facilities for private aviation.
  • Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen International Airport (LTFJ/SAW): This airport is located on the Asian side of Istanbul and is also suitable for private jets. It has a general aviation terminal that provides services for all private charter flights.


Both airports have a range of aviation services available for luxury private jet passengers, including ground handling, fueling, catering, and other amenities. AEROAFFAIRES also offers a point-to-point helicopter transfer service to connect the airport of arrival to the city center: an opportunity to discover the city from the sky and optimize your time.
