Istanbul New Airport Guide

Where is Istanbul New Airport
The new airport was considered to be required as extending the outgoing Ataturk Airport was not possible due being cited to the south of Istanbul on a coastal outcrop with the Sea of Marmara to the south and major road infrastructure to the north. The new airport lies north of Istanbul on the black sea coast near Lake Termos, the near 8,000 hectare site offers much more flexibility for the future expansion of the project and associated transport links from the airport to Istanbul and surrounding areas.

Why does Istanbul need a New Airport

Both existing airports in Istanbul have a combined passenger capacity of 90 million passengers (Atatürk  - 61m, Sabiha Gökçen - 29m respectively), however Turkey’s ambitious plans to become the hub from east to west has resulted in the decision to invest heavily in the Istanbul New Airport project. The new airport will initially boost Istanbul’s air traffic capacity from 90 million to 179 million, with an additional 50 million passenger movements planned to become available by 2030. Atlanta’s Hartsfiueld-Jackson Airport is the world largest airport at present handling near 105 million passengers in 2018, so Istanbul New Airport should dwarf this if run anywhere near capacity. Where will all of these passengers go? Whilst Turkey is pushing it’s tourism industry aggressively, relatively few holiday makers arrive into Istanbul, Antalya and Ankara handle higher percentage of tourist air traffic, however in its ambition to become a major hub in the region, short stops are likely as well as business travel. It is a very ambitious project and only time will tell, however it’ll never be short of capacity that is for sure.
