Transportation/ Access to the location

There are two airports in Istanbul. Atatürk Airport is on the European Side of the city, and Sabiha Gökçen Airport is on the Asian Side.

By Taxi

As both of the airports are located outside the city centre you may find the taxi fees fairly expensive. The taxi from Atatürk Airport to Yıldız Central Campus will cost around Euro 35-40. In case you arrive at the Sabiha Gökçen Airport, you will need to pay double this amount to get here and you will also have to add the bridge fee to it. Communication with the taxi driver will be much easier if you write down the address and hand it to him.

By Light Rail

You may only use this method of transport from the Atatürk Airport. You can easily reach the station by following the “Metro” signs. If you have difficulties, you can easily ask airline staff for directions. In order to get on the metro, you need to buy a token from the counter. You need to use this token to go through the turnstiles in order to get to the train and you will need extra token for transfer. You can enjoy the journey without getting stressed as you will go from the first station to the last station which is Yenikapi station. Then you will take the other metro line (Green) to Haciosman station, while you will get off at LEVENT station which close to the Campus. You can take a very short ride from there to the Yildiz Technical University. We suggest you get a taxi from here because it should not be expensive. The taxi from here will cost approx. 10 TL.

By Havaş Buses

You can use this method of transport from both airports. You first need to find the departure point of the Havaş service buses. Airport staff will assist you. You need to get on the Etiler (Akmerkez) shuttle from Atatürk Airport and you need to get on the 4. Levent shuttle from Sabiha Gökçen Airport. You can ask for the assistance of Havash staff, who speak foreign languages. Both arrival points are not far from Yıldız Central Campus, therefore you can simply get on a taxi once you get off the bus. Communication with the taxi driver will be much easier if you write down the address and hand it to him. Attention: No Train or Metro between 00:00 and 06:00 Am.
