  • What airports serve Heathrow to Istanbul flights?

    When flying out of Heathrow, make sure to check which terminal your airline flies from as Heathrow has four terminals that are quite spread out. If you need to change terminals, there are shuttle trains or London Underground trains that run between the terminals but the trains also run into central London, so double check before you board to avoid catching the wrong train. You can get a free transfer ticket to use these trains at the terminal station. Upon arrival, two airports serve the city of Istanbul.
