Inter-European Discount Airline Serving Istanbul?

I'm considering flying to either London or Paris to visit friends this Spring. From here, I'm thinking of visiting Istanbul. Does anyone know of any discount airlines that serve IST from with either LON (any airport) or Paris (either airport)? I checked easyJet, Ryanair, etc.

Thanks in advance!
Matt

Don't know about any discount airlines, but I purchased round trip coach tickets from London to Istanbul for about $270 through aa.com

Sorry--left off an important part. The tickets are on British Airways.

There are no budget airlines that serve Istanbul from London or Paris. The only budget airlines that serve Istanbul from Europe are Germania (from Berlin) and Germanwings (from Cologne or Stuttgart).

Getting elsewhere to Turkey on a budget flight should not be too hard. From the UK, you could check out charter airlines like Thomas Cook Airlines, Air 2000 and My Travel who have good deals to Turkish resorts like Izmir and Bodrum.

I would imagine that given the recent terrorist activity in Istanbul, you should be able to find a competitive fare on the regular scheduled airlines lke BA, Turkish Airlines, Istanbul Airlines and Air France.
