So I missed my flight and I now have a 23 hour layover at Istanbul Ataturk airport. Is there any lounge I can pay for access to - preferably airside?

1 Answer 1


The primeclass CIP Lounge allows paid access for what appears to be 30 Euro. Access is also available via PriorityPass. It's a long time since I've been in that specific lounge, but I seem to remember that it was one of the nicer airport lounges I've visited.

There is also a hotel which offers both airside and landside rooms. If you have the ability to go landside you'll find that the rooms are significantly cheaper!

There is also a HSBC lounge which you can access for free if you have a HSBC credit card of any type.

    Both of these are correct, except that for the HSBC lounge you need to have one of their 'premiere' cards to get in for free; classic / Gold account holders need to pay 50 Turkish lira. Commented Dec 17, 2012 at 0:25
