Istanbul airport decided to make extra money from tourists in the most shameless way. So much so that even in Turkey they were outraged by the exorbitant prices at this airport for passengers. The Turkish tourist media recorded that the transit service for tourists at the Istanbul airport began to compete with the cost of the air tickets themselves.
According to the information provided by them, only the prices for VIP lounge services offered to passengers became comparable to the cost of air tickets. The cost of this service per person is more than USD 325.
But this is not the limit – prices for some complex tariffs for transit services start at 500 “bucks”. The service includes meeting passengers, access to the VIP lounge, escort to the exit, fast passport control, and baggage collection if necessary.
We will remind you that even ordinary tourists who are going only to Antalya were previously advised to forget about the word “cheap” about Turkey, and also not to buy anything at the airport. Prices at the Antalya airport are beyond the limit – and not only for food, which is partly expected but also for other needs.
“A snack at the airport has become golden. A washed apple costs 2 Euros, a washed banana costs the same,” says the blogger. A bottle of mineral water will cost 4 euros, coffee – 8, and soda or orange juice – 6 euros. Also, tourists are not advised to buy a “seven with the Internet” immediately upon arrival at the airport, and the prices “bite” in duty-free.
