Ex-IST, getting there

Seen this on another thread, maybe useful to people thinking about doing an ex-IST trip.

Seems Swiss are offering LON to IST for 87 including all taxes:

The EasyJet Istanbul service is now up and running as well - direct!

Yep Raffles, you are right. Also the fares are not too bad (i.e. seem to be cheaper than Swiss), and like you say direct service.

Just note that EZY don't fly into the main airport (IST), but rather a lower cost one (SAW) which is located on the Asian side of the city.

I noticed this too. Means you'd need to cross the Bosphorus to get to the main hotel areas.

I'm going to IST in a few weeks but the deal above doesn't work for my dates Hopefully I'll be going BA anyway
