Why is it worth flying to Istanbul in Spring 2022?

Firstly, from foreign sightseeing destinations, Istanbul now objectively has no competitors. Neither in terms of the cost of the flight, nor in relation to the Russians, nor in terms of prices … And the Turkish government is doing everything possible to keep it that way.
