I'm from the Netherlands and will be travelling to Turkey very soon. On my ID-card it says that it allows me to travel to Turkey (i.e. I don't need a passport). However, on the website of the airline I'm flying with it says that I do need a passport. So now I'm panicking a bit, since there's no way to arrange a passport at such short notice, and I was under the impression that I could travel to Turkey with just an ID-card.
So my question is: is this possible? Can it be that I can enter Turkey with just an ID-card, but that the airline still requires me to have a passport regardless?
Edit: I called them (already before posting this question), but it wasn't very helpful. The conversation went something like this
- Me: Do I need a pasport to fly from the Netherlands to Turkey?
- Them: Yes you need a passport
- Me: Even if an ID-card is sufficient for getting into Turkey?
- Them: Hold please...
- Them (20 secs later): We don't know, this is not our responsibility
So after that not so helpful conversation I came to this site to ask for more information. I'll update this answer either after I'm denied or after I arrived on my destination.
