Your journey


Sabiha Gökçen International Airport (SAW) will be the starting point of your trip to Dubai, located on the Anatolian shore of Istanbul at Pendik/Kurtköy. Getting to the airport is nice and simple - it’s just 1.5km from the TEM motorway, directly linked for easy access. Transportation options are plentiful, with taxis, buses and trains all ready and able to take you to SAW. Alternatively, drive yourself and make the most of the airport’s multi-storey car park.

Check-in before you arrive with our online service or head to one of our counters once you reach SAW. Once you’re checked-in, drop off your bags and head through security before relaxing in the departure lounge. Indulge at the duty free shops and settle down for a bite to eat at the airport’s range of cafes and restaurants.

Once you land at Dubai International Airport (DXB), the city centre is a short 15-minute journey by car - either hire a car, order a taxi or take the bus. Another convenient way to travel is by Dubai Metro – the closest station, Abu Hail, is just 2km from Terminal 2.
