Istanbul Airport Metro Opens, 1-Month Free Rides

Istanbul airport city metro

A 34-kilometer (21-mile) metro now links Istanbul city railway transportation with Istanbul Airport, Türkiye’s largest and one of the biggest airports in the world.

Speaking at the Kagithane-Istanbul Airport Metro Opening Ceremony, Türkiye's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that the airport metro will be free for 1 month.

Starting from Kağıthane station and extending to Istanbul Airport, the 34-kilometer-long 8-station metro line will transport travelers from Kağıthane to Istanbul Airport in 24 minutes.

The metro route has a daily capacity of 800 thousand passengers.

With the Gayrettepe section becoming operational in the coming months, the line length will reach 37.5 kilometers.



Travelers can use the new metro to reach Kağıthane and transfer to other lines to reach their final address in the city. When the Gayrettepe section opens, travelers will be able to travel to Taksim Square via the M2 line much easier.
