Going Through The Airport

Istanbul Ataturk Airport was deemed the busiest airport in existence and has had over 70 million annual passengers. However, after a while, the airport was closed to commercial flights, and all activities transferred to Turkey’s flagship airport. There were plans for construction and renovation; thus, Istanbul’s New Airport was opened for business. To date, there are an estimated three further runways that are destined to be built at the location and over 15 million square feet of terminal space – much more than any other airport has ever seen. In October 2018, the airport recorded its first flight since the renovation, and it was seamless. The whole project is expected to be a four-phase task and should be completed by 2025.
The entire space covers about 76 million square meters (18,780 acres) and can host up to 90 million or more passengers annually. This feature is, by far, one of the most intriguing of the new airport that many people have found to be fascinating. Ready for another exciting piece of data? When the airport is completed, it will be able to efficiently host up to 200 million passengers yearly, more than any other airport has ever done. Though the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta hosts up to 107 million passengers a year, that is the farthest any airport in existence will go.

Features and Amenities

The new airport will have everything you desire in an airport, from accessibility facilities to great quality interior designs and customer services. It will also have amenities such as leisure and entertainment areas like theatres for every traveler, kids’ areas, comfortable waiting areas, fine dining restaurants, exclusive shops, bars, and so much more. Travel will become more effortless while you do so in comfort, class, and style. You will also have access to duty-free shops, attraction sites, and a 451-bedroom lodging area. Turkey’s air traffic industry is growing by the day, and with the number of airlines being designed and released in the country, the need to have a home for them was one of the reasons behind this vast development. We anxiously await the final stage of completion, as this will be an airport to rock history to its core.
