Book flights to Istanbul

Turkey’s largest city is also its biggest cultural and historical hub. Here you can observe the influences of the many empires that have ruled over Istanbul throughout the centuries. With leftovers from the Ottoman’s Old City, the Roman Hippodrome and the Byzantine Hagia Sofia, there are plenty of ancient sights to see alongside impressive skyscrapers, modern eateries and luxury boutiques.

Fly to Istanbul with British Airways and enjoy a city full of vibrant cafes and trendy restaurants. Explore the neighbourhoods – known locally as mahalles – that make up the city, and discover Sultanahmet’s holy sites, Nisantasi’s high fashion stores and Beyoglu’s 19th century European elegance. Istanbul’s unique combination of East and West makes it easy to immerse yourself in the city’s contrast of history and modern life. No matter the reason for your Istanbul holiday, you’ll love this cultural melting pot.
