I'm sure we all have heard about the terrorist attack in Istanbul Ataturk airport yesterday, 28 June 2016. Has anybody by any chance flown to/from/via IST since the attack and can give a first-hand account of any new security measures that have been introduced, especially in regards to transferring passengers?
I have tickets for this Saturday, 02 July 2016, flying with Turkish Airlines and transferring in IST (international to international). These are the flights I've taken several times in the past and from experience, 1 hour 10 minutes that I have between flights is enough time. However I am concerned that after the terrorist attack the airport introduced additional security measures, which may cause me to miss my connecting flight. Add to this the fact that we'll be travelling with small children - and now the chance to miss the connecting flight is rather real.
The booking is all on one ticket and in case we do miss the connecting flight, the next one is only 3 hours later, so it's not the end of the world, but it would be nice to know what to expect.
