    Since I am initially flying on AC and the TK forum non existent, I am hoping for help in my home forum. :)

    I am connecting at Istanbul Sabina Gokcen (SAW) .

    I am flying business class from Canada to Israel on the following itinerary: YYC-FRA-SAW-TLV

    YYC-FRA on AC
    FRA-SAW on TK
    SAW-TLV on TK

    As I am not familiar with SAW, I need info about transiting SAW.
    Is FRA-SAW and SAW-TLV considered international to international connection and exempt from a visa?

    Directions to connect at SAW would also be appreciated.

    Thank you

    You can stay airside in SAW. Be advised that the TK lounge there is nothing like the IST lounge.
