Turkish Airlines VIP Istanbul Style with Travel Counsellors.

6 Lucky Travel Counsellors were treated to the full business class Turkish Airlines weekend treatment accompanied by Alper Sean Hackett (Turkish Airlines) in Istanbul. The lucky group got to fly business class to the all-new world beating Istanbul Airport along with seeing the Blue Mosque, Hippodrome: German Fountain, Serpentine Column, Obelisk of Thedosius, Museum of Turkish and Islamic Arts and Topkapı Palace.

 

Anyone who’s been to Istanbul in recent years will know that the old Ataturk Airport was straining under capacity. Built for a maximum 38.5m passengers, it welcomed 79m passengers in 2018, which invariably meant longer queues and congestion at check-in and immigration. The new Istanbul Airport opened fully on April 6th 2019, and the numbers are impressive: covering an area of 1,300,000 sq metres, it has more than 500 check-in points, 143 boarding bridges and 52,500 sq metres of duty free, all to service up to 200m yearly passengers.

 

Turkish Airlines’ award-winning business class lounge at the old airport was one of the best in the world, but it’s been outdone by the lounge at the new airport. Besides all of the usual comforts and food stations, you can pass the time perusing paintings in the art gallery, practice your swing on the golf simulator or relax in one of the 13 private suites complete with beds.

 

The group got to stay in the Eresin Hotel Sultanahmet, the unique museum hotel of Turkey, the Eresin Hotels Sultanahmet, located in the heart of Istanbul which is the only city in the world standing upon two continents, will convince you of it.

 

The Eresin Hotels Sultanahmet is not just a hotel offering personalized quality, service and comfort, but also a Boutique Class hotel in Sultanahmet with a private museum showcasing a cistern, mosaics, 49 other museum pieces of historical and architectural significance from Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine times and extraordinary discoveries dating from Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman times.
