What is a stopover?
A stopover is when passangers have 24 hours or more between connecting flights. For example, on a series of flights like Frankfurt–Istanbul–Bangkok for which passengers stay 24 hour or more in Istanbul, spending the night and flying off to Bangkok the next day, then that is a stopover. Passengers can use this opportunity to discover Istanbul and make the travel experience even more enjoyable.
Come and see Istanbul!
Istanbul is a city that displays the legacies of Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman cultures blended in to the modern city where east meets west. Istanbul shows visitors its Byzantine and Ottoman past through its historical buildings like the waterfront mansions along the Bosporus, the Hagia Sophia, and Topkapı Palace along with the coastal neighborhoods along the Golden Horn. Despite the Galata, Beyoğlu, Üsküdar, and Kadıköy districts’ long history of settlement, they have a youthful vibrancy and colorful atmosphere full of life while still maintaining a connection to tradition and the past.
