Istanbul is a city of incredible architecture, mouthwatering food, and some of the most welcoming and hospitable people.
It’s not only the biggest city in Europe but also a bridge between two majestic continents: Europe and Asia, as the impressive city is located on both continents.
From getting lost in the Grand Bazaar, where locals sell everything from dazzling lanterns to warm apple tea, to taking a Hammam (a Turkish bath) after a long day of countless sightseeing, Istanbul is packed with fantastic things to see and do.
In Istanbul, you’re never too far from cafés and restaurants offering snacks, a variety of food and beverages, the city’s famous baklava, a pastry topped with ground pistachios, and let’s not forget sis kebabs, delicious meat on a stick that comes with freshly baked bread and is always tender. Turkish coffee is also readily available. Lay back and enjoy.
While you’re in the city’s main square area, don’t forget to stop by the architectural wonder that is the Hagia Sophia. Originally built as a Christian Church, the building was then converted into a Mosque until it became a museum. Here, you’ll find spectacular mosaics and an impressive dome.
While most of Istanbul’s attractions, including the Blue Mosque, Dolmabahçe Palace, the Grand Bazaar, Basilica Cistern, and others lie on the European side, it’s definitely worth cruising over to the Asian part of the city as well. After all, how often can you say you’ve visited two continents in just one day? The Asian side of Istanbul offers travellers a glimpse of local life, a colourful array of food stalls and incredible street art.
So why fly business class to Istanbul? The benefits of flying business class often begin before you even leave the house. Many airlines offer a chauffeur service that will take you from your front door to the door of the airport terminal, free of charge.
To make it better, as a business class traveller, you’ll also enjoy priority check-in, additional baggage allowance, and premium lounge access. Lounges are private and have excellent service - starting from fine dining and bubbling champagne and ending with shower facilities.
In business class, the seats come wider and better. From lie-flat beds to private suites, the specific details vary with each airline.
For those who enjoy in-flight entertainment, know that it only gets better in business class. From critically acclaimed films, online games, free WiFi to a digital library full of music and podcasts, you’ll not get bored.
Overall, flying business class allows you to maximize your time and be able to work even during a flight or - if the trip is overnight - get proper rest and arrive less-stressed and ready for that important business meeting abroad.
