Turkish Airlines started a new service for its passengers which is going to provide more time and less effort for them. Passengers can use this service while flying to and from Istanbul and it goes like this: when you check out from your hotel or leave your place of accommodation earlier than your flight you can leave your luggage to the Taksim Miniport Office and go back to your city sightseeing or other unfinished jobs. The one thing passengers have to care about is that the leaving should be done 5 hours prior to the departure time.
Or vice-versa, when passengers arrive at the Atatürk Airport, they can directly leave their luggage and go to exhibitions or meetings or start their city tours without caring about their heavy items which are going to be carried by Miniport to Taksim.
Taksim Miniport Office is open everyday from 07.00 to 23.00 and the Airport Miniport Office 24 / 7 .
Turkish Airlines is in cooperation with Aras Cargo for this service which has three rings during day times from Taksim to Atatürk Airport scheduled 09.00 – 13.30 – 18.30.
PS: for special security reasons passengers flying to America, Israel, Canada or UK cannot benefit from this service.
