How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Istanbul
Your adventure to Istanbul begins the minute you’ve completed all the security checks. Here are some useful tips to help you pass through quickly:

  • Airport security staff will request to see your passport and boarding pass at the checkpoint. Store them in a convenient place, ready for inspection.
  • You’ll have to pause the tunes for a few minutes. Earphones and headphones must be taken off and placed in a tray to be X-rayed. The same applies to items such as heavy jackets and belts.
  • All laptops need to be taken out of their protective carriers and placed in a tray before going through the X-ray machine.
  • Hand cream, toothpaste and other toiletry items in gel, liquid or cream form need to be stored in containers no larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters). They must also fit in a 1-quart (1-liter) clear zip-lock plastic bag.
  • Think about your choice of footwear. Slippers are awesome because they’re a piece of cake to step out of for the airport security checks. Try wearing some on your next journey!
  • Pocketknives and corkscrews are not permitted on board the plane. Pack them in your checked luggage to avoid leaving them at the airport security checkpoint.

How to find cheap flights

What is the best day to buy a plane ticket?

Airfares offered on Friday tend to be the cheapest, according to flight demand on Travelocity.ca in 2021. Purchasing your airfares on a Thursday or Saturday can also provide better value, however our advice if you’re looking to save money is to avoid booking on a Wednesday or Sunday. Our data shows that those two days have the highest ticket values on average, so keep this in mind if you’re browsing flight deals.

 

What are the cheapest days to fly?

Frequent travellers may already know this, earlier in the week is often the cheapest time to fly. Flights departing on a Monday are the cheapest of the week. Since flights towards the middle of the week tend to be more popular, this causes the prices to rise. This is why, on average, airfares booked on Travelocity.ca in 2021 were most expensive for Wednesday departures.

 

How far in advance can you book a flight?

Here’s the deal: It is typically possible to start comparing international airfares on Travelocity.ca up to 12 months in advance. However, it does depend on the carrier as not all airlines release their prices that far out. According to our 2021 flight demand trends, last minute planners can still bag a bargain with some of the cheapest fares appearing 2-4 weeks prior to their travel dates.

*According to flight demand on Travelocity.ca from January to December 2021. Savings are subject to change and may vary depending on selections made.
