    Airfare Roundtrip Travel Package To Istanbul, Turkey


    When I travelled to Istanbul, Turkey, I was invited by a Turkish-American native, the son of Reverend Melvin A. Wittler and Mrs. Nancy Wittler (Patriquin) who lived near Taksim Square and the Bosphorus Bridge for years before they retired to their Vermont farm in West Dummerston, Brattleboro in South Vermont, New England, in the United States of America.

    A trip to Istanbul in the country of Turkey involves a long journey for time travelers requiring trans-atlantic flights connections from the United States to Europe and across into Turkey, in the Middle East. 

    A roundtrip travel airfare package on Sabena Airlines flying from the Midwestern state of Illinois, leaves from O’Hare Airport to New York Kennedy Airport to pick up other passengers and travel companions flying across the Atlantic Ocean to Brussels, Belgium with several hours of layover in the early morning to spare between flights bound for Istanbul, Turkey.  There is enough time from the Airport to take a subway train into the historic Brussels Downtown district, have a Belgian waffle and a hot cup of coffee for breakfast before walking around the cobblestone streets and historic landmarks at the Plaza--without missing the next noon flight scheduled for Istanbul, Turkey at the Brussels International Airport in Belgium.  Travel light and check travel baggage all the way through the final destination via the same airline without any problems.

    Once on board Sabena Airlines from Brussels, Belgium, the journey is directly bound for Istanbul, Turkey and takes time travelers across the continent of Europe and into the Middle East without stopping to refuel.  Three hours and twenty minutes later, the travel flight from Brussels Airport to the Ataturk Airport in Istanbul, Turkey arrives on time by 3H20 PM.  After Customs clearance, travelers can find their way to the Lobby entrance where friends are waiting in queue for their arrival.
