Turkish Airlines transit time

Hi

I am looking for cheap flights to Mombasa and Turkish Airlines look ok. On some flights though the time between connecting flights is only an hour ( Istanbul) has anyone had experience of this and was it possible without too much stress?!

It is either an hour or 13 hours and 13 hours is just too long.

an hour is cutting it a bit fine but once off the plane and in the terminal takes about 10 mins to get to the tranist lounge and gates a lot depends on if they stop on the tarmac and you have to get on a bus to the terminal , have done it once with a 7hr wait it was a nightmare as its expensive inside there

am going my self in 4 weeks with a 4hr wait which isnt so bad

Thanks, going from Manchester it looks like its either an hour or 13. It's 2.5 hours coming back which hopefully will be fine. Just not sure what to do.......

Should be okay as long as the flight to IST isn't delayed.

not a lot to do in the airport , you could rent a room if feeling flushed at the airport which still keeps you airside , and its not much fun on the 6hr flight in a 737-900 a little small and cramped and i really dont know why they fly to kilimanjaro before mombasa for an hr stop , unless its a pick up point or fule is cheaper than mombasa

In all reality it is quite possible that you'll miss the connection. Just deal with the layover. You can go into Istanbul for a few hours.
