A journey begins with check-in counters, hence, the new airport in Istanbul has carefully planned out every little detail to ensure the comfort and convenience of the passenger. Passengers can be seated instead of standing when being checked in and provided with the boarding pass. From quick massages to an international spread of food and beverages, passengers have plenty to indulge in. There is ample seating and a silent area for a power nap, as well as a whole section of modern art for art lovers.
