Till att vara så gigantisk stor,är det ändå mycket lätt att hitta rätt.
Mycket hjälpsam personal,och för en gångs skull lite leenden från säkerhetspersonalen.

Bad bad bad...Signage is too confusing. The staff are rude. I bought a few things from the grand bazaar and asked the staff there for "billing counter". She could not understand, and that's fine, but still pointed me to the correct place. Just as I was leaving she was mocking my tone. I felt like just throwing the stuff back. The other big thing is that there are no water fountains anywhere. If you need drinking water you need to buy it. Probably my last time transiting this airport.

Althought the airport looks nice, it takes too long to get to your gate, the signage is unhelpful, and the staff have poor English and are rude. When you get to the dutyfree section, beware! I got an icetea from Simit Sarayi and the lady who served me intentionally lied. She said it was 3 euros, which was already a lot, but on the screen and on the receipt the price was 2.56. I told her it said differently in the screen, but she repeated it was 3 euros, like she couldn't understant my compliant. I bought the icetea anyway because I was so thirsty after a 6 hour flight in the evening and I had to rush to get my connecting flight, but I regretted doing so as soon as I payed for it. I should have just got my money back! If it happens to you, either complaint until they cave or don't buy anything from there. They'll start to change once they loose money.

Worst airport ever. Staff are rude, unhelpful and racially biased. Will avoid at all cost because planning is so poor that you will definitely miss your flight if there isn't a long connection.

Since the opening of the new airport is very long distance to make a nternational transfer if you coming from Jfk. It took about an hour . I might not make it going back to nyc on my return it is my last time using Turkish airlines which is very good airline

I was quite worried after reading the negative reviews on New Istanbul Airport. We arrived a couple of days ago. We had a very positive experience. People were helpful and friendly. The airport is huge and very clean. Getting the Istanbulkart and using the Havaist shuttle was a smooth process thanks to helpful folks at the airport. I would recommend using the ATM instead of the money exchange counters.

Aéroport magnifique, mais il y a énormément à faire pour qu'il soit au niveau des petits aéroport européen, il valait mieux faire plus petit mais avec un meilleur service aux passagers :
- Toilettes très sales dans tous les coins
- prix exorbitant pour les restaurants
- même les produits locaux sont trop chères, c'est dommage, ça devrait être une vitrine pour attirer les touristes et les encourager à aller visiter la ville d’Istanbul
- impossible de se connecter au WIFI (même pas pour quelques minutes), les restaurants en ont fait un commerce très juteux, il faut acheter pour 20 euros pour avoir quelques minutes de WIFI.
- attention quand vous payez en Euros, on vous rend des livres (en vous faisant croire que ces sont des euros), en plus que c'est très chère, vous perdez encore 6 fois sur la monnaie rendue.

It might be huge and impressive but it is the worst airport I have ever gone through.
The appalling rude staff with zero training in customer service. We had a short transfer, young kids and a family member requiring assistance. We all went running with a five year old and an 8 year old trying to find our gate with no one helping. My mother who had assistance was left with her boarding pass but not passport. They chucked her out so now she has no idea where we are and no idea how to get to gate. She nearly had a heart attack and no one would help. We all nearly missed connecting flight with her left with no passport and left behind.
Absolutely terrible airport

This is the most dis organized airport I have traveled to and I travel allot, 191 flights last year, for time to Turkey and if I can avoid Istanbul in the future I will. Your line ups are absurd and un acceptable. Your people in charge of organizing and security should all be replaced or trained how to work with large crowds. I even witnessed 3 time frustrated passengers yelling at your security people. You need to organize better, you are failing miserably now, and I will not return to this country until its fixed. Ruened my vacation coming and leaving

Impressive, enormous new building, but not designed or managed with passenger convenience and comfort in mind.

On arrival, the walk from the gate to the exit is way too long. There's a huge number of exchange booths (likely with a bad rate), but finding an ATM is nearly impossible without asking for directions -- I looked around for 20 min thinking that it simply can't be that hard.

There's no metro link to the city, and buses take 60-120 min depending on the destination and traffic. On the positive side, buses to the city are inexpensive (under $5), frequent and comfortable. WiFi on the bus requires sending an SMS to your number -- if I had phone service, I wouldn't need the WiFi.

Departure experience is far worse. Immigration queue was not especially long, but there's nobody managing it, so you have to walk through 8 snaking bends even though they're empty. Nobody is managing the booth queues -- nearby ones have 10 people queueing, far away ones 2 people.

There are no water fountains at all on the departure side, and you could only buy water at cafes or vending machines (for 7x the city price). All the prices are ridiculous, I think I found the airport with the highest airside vs city price ratio in the world.

Luggage carts are plentiful, but a semi-scam. You can't just take one but need to "deposit" 5 lira. Theoretically you can get a refund later, but there's no place to drop off carts near the entry to the immigration queue or departure gates, so realistically, you won't be returning them. In addition, if you don't have 5 lira exact cash, you're out of luck.

Overall, it's an impressive building, with a below-average airport experience.

This is the thing: the airport is huge. That is not a problem, there are many huge airports around the globe. But this airport is not user friendly: it seems they didn't build it for passengers, but to show of. I don't know what exactly, but there you go.
WIFI is almost non existent. You can build this massive building, but you cannot provide, what is today, a basic service needed for travelers. Nice!
Despite there are numerous shops, diversity is also lacking, in offer and prices. You CANNOT eat for decent here. It is impossible. Although it was opened recently, the materials, carpets, floor and walls already seem in a bad shape, probably due to the fact they built it so quickly with cheaper materials. From the moment of landing to getting into the building you need at least 35-45 minutes because it is also not "plane friendly". Taxiing takes just too much time. Flying out seems better: it requires 20 minutes. If you are connecting here, take your time. Queues for passport and security check take the same amount of time (a lot!) like at Ataturk: why building a new airport if you are not improving services?!
And the final thing from me, despite its size, each wing of the new building looks alike without any particular character, without anything that will scream "This is Istanbul", and of course this fact adds more to the confusion of passengers who have issues with orientation there.
The point of any airport is to take you places. New Istanbul Airport exhausts you at first place.
I will try to use other airports for my connections in future.

Il n'y a aucun moyen de faire chauffer un repas pour bébé. Rien n'est prévu par l'aéroport (en dehors des restaurants qui refusent tous de chauffer le repas des enfants avec une mention spéciale pour Starbuck qui n'a vraiment pas été aimable...).
Les toilettes pour enfant sont sales. Nous avons vu une femme de ménage passer dans les toilettes avant d'y aller. Elle n'a rien nettoyé du tout. Pourtant, ça se voyait que la cuvette était très sale.
Sinon, comptez au moins 25mn entre atterrissage et l'arrivée au point de stationnement. Ajoutez le temps de débarquement et le temps pour vous rendre à votre correspondance. Bref, si vous avez moins d'1h30 pour votre correspondance, c'est très mal parti pour l'avoir.
Bref, ce nouvel aéroport n'est vraiment pas top.

Signs were clearly marked in English. Staff was polite and competent. I entered with an e-visa, which was very easy to obtain. I found landing in the airport quite manageable. As the subway system is not yet complete, I took a very inexpensive, high-quality airport shuttle into the city of Istanbul. Upon leaving Istanbul, the check-in had many open counters and very little wait time. I requested a wheelchair as I had injured my leg during the trip. I was escorted to my gate by competent staff. As the airport is new, perhaps it will take some time before the entire system runs to perfection. However, the services were excellent and I had no complaints.

Worst airport experience ever. The staff is sooooooo rude and denigrating you will wish you paid more to avoid the experience.
To start with the airport is huge and although that may seem a good thing soon one starts realizing that walking 30 minutes hike with kids or luggage is not a fun experience. This airport was build to impress not to be functional and it isn't. There is no way to reach your transfer flight in less than 2-3 hours, impossible I tell you. and if you are going to Canada, UK or US you got to start planning for 4 hours minimum. The airport is humongous, and tiring and super expensive, a simple 200 ml water bottle will set you back 3.5 euros and its not easy to buy after security. Security is in layers, you may have to go thru more than 3 different security personnel at 3 different stages. You may think is design to make you loose your are not alone.

The staff, oh my dear, the staff deserve a dedicated review web page. Rude does not begin to describe them. Let me try to see how clearly I can describe them:
- Disrespectful , Arrogant, discourteous, disorganized, unwilling, unprofessional, un everything you may think about.,
This has been for my wife and small kids a nightmare trip with Turkish airlines, to the point that my wife and I made the promise to never ever go back to this airport no matter how attractive the offer. I assure you that couple hundred dollars more for a flight thru another airport is better. This airport was a humiliating experience.

Dont get me wrong the flight was fine, but once we landed, none of the services was there, imagine 36 minutes in a bus after the flight..A BUS!!! of course you miss your flight connection, and then you are left alone in an airport the size of 10 football fields walking cause no trams no nothing, walking I say to you, with three kids, asking people cause all the signs are directing you to is a mad house. No one speaks English nor even a broken one. Horrible.

Not enough? well the most expensive airport in the world............wait for it..... does not have wifi.

Designing an airport should be about the passenger experience, and rest assure the designer of this airport hates people.
I was heartbroken and ashamed of myself to have put my family thru this airport. I just hope that my experience avoids it to your family. Please take another route, avoid this airport.
You will see another sites with 4 and 5 stars reviews...i lived it, all those reviews are fake.They have to be.
Below I have to rate from 1 star, if I could I would rate from -3000 stars.

If there is anyone in your life that has hurt you and you wanna revenge, get them a flight with transfer thru this airport... trust me you will be avenged.

Well, after hearing these stories about the new airport I was dreading having to transit there after coming on local flight from Edremit. We did taxi quite a bit coming in before getting off, 20 mins perhaps, but once arrived,, the airport was well signposted for both passport control and transit. The passport control was quiet and the kind officer there told me transit was on second floor. The airport is airy and the ceiling splendid. I went through to transit and had a look at the shops and a coffee which allowed me to sit in the cafe area. Again, I was dreading the thought of a huge march to the gate, but although my flight was late leaving, I was in the F gate section which was not too bad to get to and there was a travelator. Two people in wheelchairs were on my flight so someone must have brought them to the gate. I have travelled a lot with Turkish Airlines and have never had any complaints that have not been dealt with.!
My impression is that they need more passenger seating in the main airport area and get their minds off making tons of money from the duty free shops which don't have any Turkish charm, they are the same old, same old, as in any other airport. Turkey is a wonderful country and they need to advertise it more in the airport. I understand they want to be a hub airport in the Middle East, but there next step is to stop trying to make an impression and address the complaints about walking miles, have 'meeters and greeters' round the airport to direct passengers and always with a smile.
Lots more seating for waiting passengers, and suppress the desire to fleece them with overpriced food and drink. PASSENGERS FIRST AND LAST.
Saying this, the airport did have to open in a bit of a rush and I am sure very soon a lot of niggles will be addressed and the access routes to Istanbul City sorted out with the new Metro and other improvements. I had my passport checked five times but I am not complaining, at least they are taking security seriously in a volatile area of the world. In 12 months, I think we will be seeing some good changes. It is an ambitious project and frankly for the size it is, there was no where nearer to Istanbul it could be sited. All airports have problems with capacity, including Heathrow. I wish Turkey the best for this new venture.

Pouvez vous ce que les ultrasons que nous entendons en permanance dans l'aéroport. Après y avoir passé 24 heures je peux vous dire que c'est strident.

Worst airport ever. They have build it this big just for trying to put more stores in it, but the attention in general is awful, the transportation impossible to use, the prices extremely high, the personnel is completely unhelpful. I'd like specially mention the personnel of Turkish Airlines, avoid this company at all cost, it will only be a problem for you. In my case, every one in here tried to scam me, not even one person showed a drop of empathy or tried to help in any way. The manager in the Hotel Desk (I think she was called Arzu Ayzin, was such a mean person, and I'm using her name just because she really was mean, a person you should avoid no matter what, she would only rejoice in your sorrow). If you are out of battery and you can't embarc yet, well... there is only one socket in the whole airport, the second biggest one in the world, and only one plug. Internet connection, only for 15 minutes, download the app in that time or your are screwed. So, in conclusion, avoid this place, you wont have a great memory from Turkey because of this, and it's wrong, this place shouldn't be the first impression of any country.

Airport looks good. But its system and service are so bad. They never care passengers convenience. They don"t even have power outlet as if this is new airport. Never recommend this urgly airport for transit.
