transfer between ataturk international arrivaland terminal D

we are travelling to Istanbul next July and are supposed to arrive

in Ataturk international terminal from Dubai by emirates at 3.00 pm and catch a turkish airline flight from domestic terminal D at 5.50pm. How far are these two terminals? do we have enough time to collect our luggage and go to the checking desk to board that flight?

Any tips for a quicker transfer?

The terminals are connected by an internal tunnel. It takes me about 10 minutes to walk the distance. I've done the same journey a number of times and never missed the connection. Quick hint. As you leave the customs hall exit, turn left. If you look straight ahead and slightly to your right the signs to the entrance of the walkway high on the right. If rushed when you get to the option to take a lift - walk up the ramp instead. Much quicker. What ever you do - don't exit the concourse in international or you have to go back through the initial security to get into the area and that eats into your time.
