OK Guys I need some help. Me and my girl are heading to Gallipoli for the ANZAC day commemoration on April 25. The problem however is we want to fly into Istanbul and meet up with a tour group (yes I kow, very un-TPunk like), however I can't find an airline that flies there on the cheap.

The closest Easyjet goes is into Athens which would mean a train trip then bus into Turkey. Of course to get that we have to get over to London anyway so thats a bit out of our way.

Does anyone know any airline that flies to Istanbul for a reasonable price, probably out of France would be best for us. Please help me...please!!!!

Hey Joan,

Thanks a bunch for that website. I´ve booked our flights out of Cologne. It ended up costing 99 euro each, one way but thats by far the best i´ve come across.

Thanks again you´re a champion

Hey bro! You might find something on a charter flight.

Do a search, flying out of the UK (it's close to Paris) on the sites below.
Hope you find something!
