THE ISTANBUL AFFAIR

THE ISTANBUL AFFAIR

Start your journey through the city where east meets west arriving in style! PRIME CLASS. There is no better way to start or finish your journey than by simplifying all those airport formalities. Met by a Prime Class golf buggy as you exit the aeroplane, you are whisked through customs with a priority pass, before boarding an air-conditioned sedan, your baggage having been carefully collected. On your day of departure you will be met on arrival at the terminal and taken swiftly and easily through all security controls, check-in, and customs, with priority passes to facilitate your progress, before relaxing in the lounge to await boarding. Advance booking required.
