    • Turkish Airlines has direct flights from most European countries to Istanbul. Istanbul has two international airports; Istanbul Ataturk Airport and Sabiha Gökçen International Airport , and mostly the former one is used by major airlines as it is in the European side of Istanbul. Havas serves a shuttle service between the airports and main districts of Istanbul such as Taksim and Levent.
    • The easiest way from Atatürk Airport to the Koç University residences in Sarıyer by taxi. A trip from the airport to campus takes 45-60 minutes and costs about 120 TL (Euro 20).
