Ataturk Havalimani Airport, Istanbul

Might as well get some angst out of the way early on! First scare of trip was two-hour snow delay in Montreal due to snowstorm! 

Sat at de-icing station for ages while the plows removed the snow from the taxi –lanes. With three-hour connection in Istanbul it seemed obvious that our just-in-case Turkey Visas were to come in handy.  

Got to arrivals Gate 213 in Istanbul with ten minutes to spare before boarding at Gate 214 for

takeoff of connecting flight to Entebbe. 

Thanks to Claudio's App he was able to tell that flight departure was one Gate away from Arrival Gate and with a most efficient Turkish airport we did not have to clear security but took a gangway to Departure level and with a ten minute delay in Boarding, we had time to

spare – auspicious start in reality


I went to bed with my Ipad, and did check your departure from YUL, before going to sleep... Enjoy
