Airport Options for Hair Transplant in Turkey

What airport to go to for a hair transplant in Turkey?

If you are going for your hair transplant in Turkey, you may find yourself wondering which airport you should fly to. 

There are two passenger airports in Istanbul: 

  1. Sabiha Gokcen Airport (SAW).
  2. Istanbul Airport (IST). 

Sabiha Gokcen Airport 

Sabiha Gokcen is on the outskirts of the Asian side of the city, about 60 km from the city center. 

It tends to have mainly low-cost flights. However, it is not very convenient to get to and from, especially if your landing or take-off happens to coincide with rush hour in Istanbul ( which if you don’t know about the city traffic can be infernal). 

Istanbul Airport

On the other hand, Istanbul Airport is new and has only been open since late 2018. It is overlooking the Black Sea on the European side of Istanbul. 

It is very modern and flights from every single European capital, or major city land there. 

In addition to many direct long-haul flights to the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. 

The airport is about 30 km outside of the city, but it is very well connected with a high-speed highway and airport buses where which to go to every part of the city. 

How to get a transfer from the airport when you go for a hair transplant in Turkey?

If you are booking your hair transplant surgery in Istanbul, you should know that most hospitals and clinics offer all-inclusive hair transplant packages, which include airport transfer. 

If you have opted for a package that does not include transfer, you have many options to get a ride: 

  • You can use an airport bus, which is the cheapest option at around 3$/4$. 
  • You can book a car in advance with a driver which is around 20$ one way. 
  • In addition, you can either get your hotel to pick you up at an extra charge, usually under 50$.
  • Or you can take a cab from the airport taxi stop (which is right outside the main arrival gate).

Which airlines fly to Istanbul?

When it comes to flying to Istanbul from anywhere in the world, your best choice may be Turkish Airlines

They have more destinations in the world than any other airline in the world. In addition, if you book your hair transplant during a low season period, they always have some offers.

Otherwise, most major European and North Americans fly to Istanbul or have partner airlines that do.
