If anyone has been through the new Istanbul airport, I would interested to know how long it took on arrival and departure? How crowded you found it and how long it took to get from plane to luggage? Heading there in just over a month so trying to get a sense of what it is like.

I am about to fly into that airport this Saturday with a 6 hour layover. Hoping to leave the airport for a couple hours and come back for the next flight. How was your experience?

We arrived on a Friday morning around 7.30am. It was fairly quiet with only 1 other flight that had arrived at that time. We were processed quickly through immigration. I think the bigger issue you face is that it is about a 40 minute drive on a good day from the airport into Istanbul so a 6 hour layover doesn't give you enough time to really go and see anything. By the time you get to the 'city', it will be time to turn around and head back to the airport again.
