USA. - Oct 19, 2017
My home city is Houston, TX. Connections can vary depending upon when you want to travel. There is a route from Ankara to Istanbul to Frankfurt to Houston which takes 20+ hours with layovers. There's another that's Ankara to Munich to Houston which is only about 15 or so hours. - Sep 21, 2017
My home base is in Houston, TX. It's a hike to get back but not as bad as some of the places I've been in Africa. There's a connection in Germany that goes to Houston. - Jun 8, 2017
Washington, D.C. -- connect through Munich when flying with government; great connections through Istanbul if flying on own. - Sep 27, 2016
Boston, easy to get to. - Jun 14, 2016
Wisconsin- we generally travel via Chicago (ORD) or Minneapolis (MSP) from Munich, Germany. One connection - either to those major U.S. airports if you can get a direct flight from Ankara to Europe, otherwise it is a terminal change in Istanbul, then direct to one of those two airports. - Aug 2, 2015

Home base is in U.S. Ankara has an early-morning direct flight to Munich, then it's a direct flight from Munich to Washington DC. Some people prefer routes through Istanbul and then direct to U.S. - Apr 2, 2015
The Southwest of the U.S. Flights usually head through Houston, then onto Munich, then to Ankara. The hours add up quickly with making a minimum of two connections and you are easily traveling for over 24 hours. - Feb 14, 2015
U.S. East Coast -- 2-hour direct flight to Munich or Frankfurt, direct flight to NYC or Washington DC . - Jun 10, 2014
Virginia - 20-30 hours. - Apr 4, 2014
Washington DC, 17 hours via United through Germany; a bit less through Istanbul on Turkish Air. - Mar 31, 2014
West Coast U.S. Around 35 hours to get here. - Mar 30, 2014
D.C. - due ro limited flight schedules and the requirement to adhere to 'FlyAmerican' it can take anywhere from 20 to 28 hours to get to Ankara. You connect through either Frankfurt or Munich, but direct flights from Germany to Ankara are limited and more expensive, so often you also have to transit Istanbul adding time and yet another connection to your trip. - Jul 28, 2013
The trip takes 13-14 hours from Washington, DC, via Munich. - Aug 4, 2011
Washington DC. About 12 hours with a stop at Munich. - Jul 14, 2010
