This is the thread dedicated for lounges and questions about the TK lounges at Istanbul Airport. Sleeping rooms in the lounge could be discussed in the third thread as it's mainly related to longer connections. Please do refer to the respective threads in the Europe forum for other contract lounges at Istanbul Airport and PriorityPass lounges.
TK in Istanbul Airport: Thread #3 - Stopover Hotel, Touristanbul, Sleeping Rooms
This is the thread for passengers booked a long connection.

There are also threads not only related to the TK pax but to all passengers traveling from Istanbul Airport. These take place in the Europe forum.

Istanbul Airport Master Thread
For any question related to the airport instead of TK ( facilities, pay-to-use services not related to TK, transportation, rental car services, hotel services, non-TK lounges ) please consult this thread in the Europe forum. Also please discuss, Flightradar24 related ADS-B issues, delays related to the airport here, unless it's a direct TK issue.
PriorityPass Lounges in Istanbul Airport
There is no PriorityPass Lounges at Istanbul Airport at the moment. However, I would update this thread when there is an available lounge for PriorityPass at the airport.

I (ISTFlyer) have removed the FAQ's as they are now all answered in the respective WIKI sections of the respective forums.

TK operations from "Istanbul Airport" aka Istanbul New Airport (ISL/IST)

The full operational transfer from Atatürk airport to the new Istanbul airport will be postponed to 30/31 December according to IATA. TK will place 2 or 3 aircraft to test operations (largely domestic routes).

Whoa! We are ticketed to fly to IST on 27th Dec and back out about a week later. So looks like we'll be into Ataturk, out of New. If the New TK lounge isn't fully operational then I'll cry. If it is and we're amongst the first to use it then I won't cry!

The headline on the linked article translates as:

"[Secret/disguised/hidden] postponement of the opening of the third airport: actual opening 31st December."

Article goes on to say that for one month after "soft" opening, only two or three THY on domestic routes will be operated.

Glad to officially know my JFK-IST flight next month will be to Ataturk. Will be quite interesting to see which domestic routes they choose for testing purposes, quite a logistical headache I would imagine.

..................and how are the unlucky few passengers on these flights going to get to town? There is no train. There is no bus, the "taxi cooperatif" most likely will not have any cars there, unless literally someone responsible is reading this very thread, and makes sure that some are there..........

I think they have to actually finish building and furnish it first.
