Sabiha Gökçen (Istanbul) Airport in a nutshell
Sabiha Gökçen Airport is the second airport of the Turkish city Istanbul and is situated in the Asian part of Turkey. The airport's name is a tribute to Sabiha Gökçen, the world's first female military pilot.
The airport is situated 40 kilometers southeast of the Asian center of Istanbul (Kadıköy) and 45 kilometers from the European part. There are plans to extend the new light rail line to Kartal to the airport. Currently public transport only includes shuttle buses. The airport lies along the connecting road between two freeways and is therefore easily reachable by car.
The airport has a large duty-free area and several restaurants, cafés, (snack) bars, and coffee shops (for example Gloria Jean’s Coffee). There are VIP lounges and a business center, but if you want to book meeting or conference rooms you need to turn to the business hotels in Istanbul. The airport has public computers with internet connection and wireless internet (Wi-Fi). Other facilities at Sabiha Gökçen Airport include banks, exchange offices, ATMs, and a post office.
In the aviation industry Sabiha Gökçen Airport is indicated by the abbreviations SAW (IATA airport code) and LTFJ (ICAO airport code).

Frequently asked questions
Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest?
Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.
What do I need to do when picking up a car?
To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
Are there any additional costs?
Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period).
