Came through new terminal, fairly quickly, had to wait a little while for assistance to come to collect my mom from the plane, that said still quicker than any UK airport!. Luggage already coming through and our transfer man parked literally right outside the door. Day time flight so all good, hoping the return will be as smooth.

There is a CIP lounge in the new terminal - just on the right up the stairs when you come out of the new duty free shopping area. TL180 per person  - less if you have a Priority Pass or similar.

Just likle the old one but a bit more modern and spacious.

We came back 2 weeks ago and the biggest problem was at check in with people's luggage being over weight.  They let them go and get money from the hole in the wall facing the check in or let them move around luggage from bag to bag, all while we waited behind them.

In fairness Bells, that's nothing to do with the new terminal, it has always been the same even going back to the days of the original international terminal (now demolished)

Whilst I agree its not New Terminal related, when we flew home last week we were checking in for the TC flight with only cabin bags. 2 Identical small cases, one 7kg the other 4.5 kg.  the Check in rep insisted that they were 6kg max, and that I transfer some stuff from one to the other !

Ian, if you were only taking cabin bags onboard, what were you doing at check in?

Checking in! - we didnt have boarding passes as unlike Easyjet, with TC you cant print 2 weeks ahead of your return with your outbound passes.

I guess I could have downloaded and printed them whilst in Turkey but didnt get around to it.
