    • Hi, there is no direct HAVAIST to Sisli or Mecidiyekoy. You should take HVIST-14 to Taksim. From Taksim you can get to Sisli and Mecidiyekoy via Metro or Public Bus.

  1. hello what line should i take to reach taksim square? and how much will it cost by istanbul kart?
    p.s can i recharge istanbul kart at the airport?
    thank you

  2. Hello, could you please inform where can I find the express buses from New Airport Istambul to Sultanahmet? Which is the company and its website? Thank you.

    • Hi Sasha, thank you. This is a difficult question. For Bostanci, you can take midibuses we cal dolmus (would take about about 1 hour) from Taksim, or take Marmaray from Sirkeci (would take about 30-40 minutes), or take M4-Kadıköy-Kartal-Pendik-Tavşantepe metro from Kadikoy (would take about 30 minutes). And you can find HAVAIST bus for Taksim and Kadikoy. No direct bus for Sirkeci. Anyways it is a hard way to get to Bostanci from Istanbul Airport. Good luck

    • Hi Bilal, you can take the HVIST-10 (Pendik – Sabiha Gokcen Airport – New Istanbul Airport) bus, it operates in between IST and SAW. Have a nice trip. Make sure to cross check the timetable and prices from https://hava.ist/tr/Voyage/Stations

  3. Please Let me Know if this Stops: Beyazit Square – Aksaray – Ulubatli – Ayvansaray – Nurtepe Viyaduk – New Istanbul Airport Still Avalible

    • Hi Husein, thank you. I checked the official site and it looks available. Line 12 in between IST and Beyazit Square. Best for getting to Fatih and Sultanahmet region. Best!

    • Well the HAVAIST airport shuttles do not accept bicycle on the bus, they say it is because there is no bicycle apparatus in the vehicle.

  4. Hey,
    How to go to the mall of Istanbul from the airport using the public transportation?
    which haviest bus should I take to get to the mall?

  5. Horrible experience! I got to the airport stop on time, there were too many people waiting and they ended up filling one bus and made the rest of us wait for another hour (and their internet site was saying there is a bus every 30min in the direction we were going). On my way back to the airport their app said there will be a scheduled departure at 7:30pm from Besiktas and there was no bus there at that time!!! Horrible experience!

  6. Hello, if tickets are purchased online- do they have to be for a certain time slot? I am not sure what time I will arrive at Esenler bus station- so maybe it is wiser to purchase with debit card inside the bus directly? Or by cash if possible at the bus station? Thank you in advance :)

  7. Is the bus available at 2 AM from sultanahmet to Istanbul airport all days including holday or is there specifically schedule and is it 24 hours or there last time trips

    • Hi Fadi, there is no direct HAVAIST bus from Sultanahmet to IST, nearest stop is Beyazit Square, within 15 mins walking distance from Sultanahmet Square. You should take the HAVAIST Bus HVİST-12, and it seems like there is bus available at 01:05 am. and 03:10 am., cross check from https://www.hava.ist/en , best

  8. Which line should I take from Sabiha Airport to Taksim?
    Is this service available from Sabiha Airport to Taksim Square?
    Thanks

    • Hi, you can take HAVABUS (not HAVAIST) Airport Shuttle Taksim Line for getting to Taksim. Buses operate between 06:30 am. – 00:30 pm., in every 30 minutes. Stops: Sabiha Gokcen Airport – Kavacik – FSM (2nd) Bridge – 1.Levent – Zincirlikuyu Metrobus stop – Dolapdere – Taksim

  9. Hallo wie komme ich den am besten von Airport Istanbul (IST) zum Sultan ahmet Platz kann ich mir ein Ticket direkt beim fahr kaufen

    • Hi Binak, you can get to Sultanahmet by HAVAIST airport shuttles. This is the best option if you don’t have lots of luggage. You can but tickets at the airport. Best

  10. Hi,
    Is there a bus from şirinevler, Bahçelievler to new istanbul airport? If not, what is the closest bus to şirinevler? And what is its schedule?
    Thanks

    • Hi, you can take Havaist Bus number 13 operating between Sirinevler and Istanbul Airport. Have a nice trip.

    • Hi, there is no direct bus to Sultanahmet. Nearest HAVAIST bus stop is at Beyazit, very close like 10-15 mins walking distance to Sultanahmet Square. Bus number is HVIST-12. 90 mins from Istanbul airport and price is 30 TL.

      • Istanbeautiful, I’m concerned about Friday AM road traffic. If I need to get from IST to Sirkeci neighborhood, would you recommend the H12 bus to Beyazit then the T1 tram or should I consider H5 bus to Otogar then take the Metro?

        • Hi Steve, well both options are fine but if I were you I’d take H12 bus to Beyazit and than Tram T1 line. I believe this would be a less crowded and less walking way. Best wishes

  11. Hello.

    Do we need to pay for kids below 10 years?.
    And one card ok for all family members or we need separate cards.
    Thanks.

    • Hi, you need to pay for all for HAVAIST bus. If you are asking for IstanbulKart, you need to buy separate cards. And kids between 0-5 age are free of charge for HAVAIST. Thanks

    • Hi, IstanbulKart is not allowed for HAVAIST at the moment but it changes time to time. You need to buy QR code ticket. You can buy it by cash at the HAVAIST office at the airport, or pay by credit card inside the bus, or buy the ticket via their mobile app. Keep in mind that the procedure changes time to time, you should cross check HAVAIST website.

    • HAVAIST bus at Taksim is situated within 5 mins walking distance to Taksim Square. You ca easily find it. See https://goo.gl/maps/2Carrr7ozn4W8Yq99

    • Well Venezia mall is in the Gaziosmanpasa neighborhood and there is no HAVAIST bus for this location. Nearest HAVAIST bus operates from Ayvansaray Metrobus Station. To get there, you can take the public bus no 55 or 99A. You can also take the M7 metro to Basaksehir Metrokent and take the HAVAIST from there.

  12. The tickets can be purchased for cash, and you can find the ticket booth near the Arrival exit gate.
    The inter-city bus stand, they call it OTOGAR (bus stand).
