Arriving in Istanbul

Book your flights to Istanbul with Etihad Airways and journey to a land of spice and culture. Istanbul is one of the most historically important cities in the world; explore its epic history.

Plan Your Istanbul Holiday

Travel to Istanbul is akin to stepping into a time machine and going on a historical tour through the great empires of the past. You would come to Istanbul as Byzantium and then again as Constantinople and then yet again as the modern day Istanbul. The Roman Empire, The Ottoman Empire, the Byzantine Empire and the Latin Empire all called this beautiful city between the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea their capital. An intricate part of the infamous Silk Road, this city has been draped in mystic and teeming with a meshing of cultures since 660 BC.

The summer sees a massive influx of tourists to Istanbul. If you are coming between July and September be sure to book your tickets to Istanbul as early as possible. Cheap hotels in Istanbul are easily found during the winter months as the temperature can drop to around freezing and the tourists stay home. Flight deals to Istanbul can be found in our Deals section.

Flying from Astana

Book your flights from Astana to numerous destinations all over the world with Etihad Airways and experience the in-flight service, fine dining and state-of-the-art entertainment that have made us the world's favourite airline.

Major Airports in Astana

The main airport in Astana is Astana International Airport (TSE). The first airfield in Astana was built in 1931 and has not stopped growing since then. With Astana being renamed the capital of Kazakhstan in 1994; the airport received an enormous upgrade to put it on par with other airports in capital cities. The current version was designed by Japanese architect Kisho Kurokawa and has been open since 2005.

Airport Transportation in Astana

A taxi to Astana International Airport can be arranged and while it is more expensive than a bus, you will get to the airport a lot faster. There is a bus to Astana International Airport from the city centre that leaves every thirty minutes. If you plan far enough in advance this is a fantastic option for those who are travelling on a budget. Unfortunately there is no direct train to Astana International Airport from the city so taxis, buses or driving is advised.

Choose Etihad Airways, the National Airline of the United Arab Emirates, for flights from Astana to Istanbul on which you will be travelling in comfort and style.
