There are ongoing political protests in Turkey. We advise if you to monitor the situation if you’re going to take advantage of this fare. At the moment, reports indicate that if you stay out of the areas of protest, you will be fine. However, the situation is very fluid. If you plan on going, we recommend you enroll in the State Department’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) before you go.
That said, Istanbul is definitely worth visiting. This is also the first time we’ve posted a deal to Istanbul from New York since February. In addition, United is pulling out of the Istanbul market starting November. Pricing will likely trend upward.
