The amount of time it will take you to travel on flights to Turkey from the United States depends in no small part on where you plan on departing from in the United States. As an example, you can travel on Turkey flights from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in about 9h and 20min. When traveling on cheap flights from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) you should expect a trip time on your plane of about 13h and 15min and when you depart from Chicago O' Hare International Airport (ORD) your trip time will be about 10h and 30min.
There are some good nonstop flight options to take you from cities in the United States to airports in Turkey. From Chicago O' Hare International Airport Turkish Airlines offers a nonstop flight landing at Istanbul International Airport (IST). Turkish Airlines also operates the same nonstop flight to Istanbul with a takeoff from John F. Kennedy International Airport and from Los Angeles International Airport.

You can find flights to Turkey from the United States out of the major airports in the country. For instance, there are flights from east coast airports like Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) and Dulles International Airport (IAD) in Washington, DC that take roughly nine and a half hours to get to their final destination in Turkey. You can also find routes from airports farther west, such as Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Flights from the United States to Turkey generally fly into Turkey’s main airport, Istanbul Airport (IST), which is located north of the city center, about an hour-long drive away.
Even though there are nonstop routes to Turkey with Turkish Airlines, it may not be the most affordable or convenient option for your dates. There are also many flights to Turkey with one layover. For instance, Aeroflot operates flights out of John F. Kennedy International Airport with just one layover at Sheremetyevo A.S. Pushkin International Airport (SVO) in Moscow, landing at Istanbul Airport. KLM and Delta Airlines also offer convenient routes from various United States airports with a stopover at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS). Another popular airport in Turkey is Antalya Airport (AYT). Flights to this airport are also available out of airports like Chicago O’Hare International Airport with just one layover in Istanbul Airport that take approximately 13 hours and 15 minutes.
One of the best ways to get around Turkey after your arrival in the country is to travel aboard domestic airlines in Turkey. They offer airfares between some of the largest cities in the country. Another option for travel is to ride on the Turkish State Railways on their very well-developed railway network. Some of the routes even offer sleeper trains as well as high-speed trains between large cities such as Istanbul, Ankara, Eskisehir, and Konya. Turkey also offers a very robust bus system. This includes buses that travel within cities as well as a number of routes between larger cities that can make stops along the way in smaller cities and towns. If you will be staying in Turkey along the Mediterranean, Marmora, or Aegean coastlines, there are plenty of ferry boats that can take you through these bodies of water to different parts of Turkey. One last option, especially if you like to do your own driving and set your own schedule, is to rent a car. All of the major airports in Turkey have all of the large global rental car brands at their location plus there are also some local rental car companies available. The road system in Turkey is very good quality and it makes it very easy for you to travel throughout the country in your rental car.
