The Turkish Airlines CIP Lounge in the international terminal at Istanbul Atatürk airport is really a gem in Europe. It is a fantastic lounge with a fun and innovative design and it offers tons of facilities. A fantastic lounge indeed, as long as you can stay away from it at peak times, like in the late evenings when it can be awfully crowded.

In February 2014 they also opened the lower floor, adding another 2400 sqm with lots of extra seating but also many new features that did not exist before.

Will you be visiting the Turkish Airlines Business Lounge soon? If you have a long layover and want some ideas on how to make the time pass, here are some ideas.
