The new airport of Istanbul, Istanbul airport, was commissioned and started commercial service on 29th of October, 2018. Some of the flights transferred to new airport. On 6th of April 2019, all flights to/from Yesilkoy Ataturk airport will be transferred to new airport.

Istanbul airport is 50 km away from Old City (Sirkeci) and 65 km from Kadikoy (Asian side).

Currently, 2 metro connections to Istanbul airport are under construction. First is Mecidiyekoy-Airport metro. The metro line is expected to be ready in 2020.

The other metro line is Halkali-Airport metro, which will start from the main Marmaray station on west. The target commission date for this metro is 2021.

Istanbul Airport will also be connected to Halkali and Sabiha Gokcen (the other airport in Asian side) by a new high speed line in the future. The construction has not started yet.

Yet, only public transport to Istanbul Airport is by bus. As of May 2019, buses are departing from/calling at 62 points in 19 different routes in Istanbul. The departure points, timetables and public transport connections of airport shuttles are as follows:
