In a continued effort to offer the best aviation experience for its clients, Turkish Airlines recently introduced a new service called Mini Port, a service that transports your baggage to the airport and frees you to enjoy your trip in Istanbul.
Working with affiliate hotels, one will now be able to leave his luggage at the hotel reception area and find it at the airport, allowing them time to move around the city without dragging their bags along the whole time.
Also, a passenger coming in from Frankfurt with a morning flight can leave their luggage at the Mini Port station in the Metro Level at Ataturk Airport. After finishing their meeting, he/she can pick the luggage from the Mini Port station at Taksim Square in the evening.
For every luggage, of which payment is confirmed, of which status is approved at the reception screens, and of which confirmation ticket is delivered to the recipient, the service will be regarded as having started, and the service fee will be paid.
Passengers can check their luggage in at the Mini Port offices that are located in Taksim and Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport. There is also the option of handing the luggage to the Turkish Airlines deliverer with the reservation that one makes at our affiliate hotels.
Passengers will also be able to monitor the whole process on their smartphones or tablets to see where their luggage is at a given time as it moves from one place to another.
All this is aimed at making it easy for one to enjoy more of Istanbul and to optimise their time while there. In short, it is a way to add value to your trip each time you fly to Istanbul with Turkish Airlines.
