I am traveling business class with Turkish Airlines from LAX to Cape Town with a 5-hour layover at Ataturk. Can I proceed to the lounge without going through customs?

    Which lounge were you hoping to reach? – phoog Oct 18 '16 at 20:51
  • Yes, just make sure you have your boarding pass for your connecting flight first, before you go upstairs. – Michael Hampton Oct 18 '16 at 20:53

Yes, you may use the Turkish Airlines departure lounge in the transit zone. It is specifically built for transit passengers and doesn't require you to enter Turkey.
