3-Book your fast-track through security in Ataturk and Sabiha Gokcen Airports

You need a little more speed but there are long queues. I think you should book a Meet & Greet Service in Ataturk Airport and Sabiha Gokcen Airport. This service is including fast-track through security and reach the luggage claim area(arrival) or lounges (departure) quickly. Book your fast-track through security service in Istanbul here.

5-Try Miniport service of Turkish Airlines

Turkish Airlines provide Miniport service for its passengers. Now you may leave your luggage at their Miniport offices and travel freely all the day till your flight. Turkish Airlines Miniport office is located near Taksim square. Their office is open between 07:00 and 23:00 weekdays and weekends day. You must drop off your luggage at least 5 hours before your flight’s scheduled departure time. You can also use same service for your arrival. Leave your luggage at their Ataturk Airport Miniport office before going to your hotel or location. While you spend the day at a business meeting, event, tour or only shopping, your luggage will be brought directly to Taksim Miniport office.
