IGA (Istanbul Grand Airport) has brought a brand-new vision to Istanbul since its opening. It’s much more than an airport with its architectural features, superior technology, and flight quality standards. People from different cultures meet at Istanbul Airport due to their journeys. Wanting to make use of this situation, İGA provides people with various opportunities to make the most of their time at the airport. In this context, various exhibitions, live music performances, and workshops are organized under the leadership of IGART. Thus, an art corner was added to the options, such as the hotel, shopping areas, eating and drinking places, airport museum and library at the airport. It would suit Istanbul, which is already a city of art, culture, and history, wouldn’t it?
Istanbul Airport came second after Singapore Changi Airport in the category of “Top 10 International Airports in the World,” determined according to the opinions of Travel and Leisure Magazine readers. Airports, which were evaluated in terms of access, check-in, security, food and beverage areas, shopping, and design, made their name on the list according to these criteria. Istanbul Airport, which wants to add a new one to these features, is determined to put its name on the top by enabling the artistic activities we mentioned above. So, what are the artistic activities we are talking about? What activities can people attend while waiting for their plane? In response to these questions, we have compiled all the events in July and August for you.
