I schedule a flight with my family from Thessaloniki’s Airport to Kemal Ataturk Airport in Istanbul and then to Bilbao. From the airline informed us that we will have a free overnight in a 5* hotel that was very convenient. We arrived at 22:00 and the carried us by bus to the hotel. In the morning a minibus collect us from the hotel and drive us to the airport to catch our flight. The same happened on our return flight. The crew was very kind and helps us with everything we’ve asked. Lunch on the plane was delicious.
