Welcome back to my final journey to Indonesia after attend summer course at one of German university located on Frankfurt(Oder) not so far away from Berlin and right after traveling thru some cities with my best friend. This is the previous flight report Prague to Istanbul .

IST Airport

Lets begin the story at Istanbul airport on this report! After arrived from previous flight I'm so hard to find wi-fi connection and I still can't connected to the wi-fi at the spot that I got the wi-fi last time. So I gave up, and just sat around the terminal building cause I've exhausted enough to shop or even walk.

After waiting for couple hours to get the information about assigned gate for my flight, then I decided to go to the boarding gates.

At the boarding gates there's plenty nationalities that I found most of the passengers bound to Bali or Lombok on Garuda's codesharing flight with Turkish and have one more transit at CGK Jakarta.

Even tho I don't have window seat on this flight, the front facing camera to the runway and taxiway was pretty cool!

Since Indonesians passport holder already done the immigration way before this desk I just need to pass thru this lanes and go straight to the baggage claim area.
There's couple international flight arrived at T2 close to TK's schedule, there's EK's, KL's, and other airlines.
