Istanbul Airport to open third runway in June

ISTANBUL, April 7, 2020

Turkey's Istanbul Airport has announced plans to make a third runway operational on in June, said a report citing airport operator IGA chief executive Huseyin Kadri Samsunlu.
“Works for the third runway are continuing. We are planning to launch the new runway, which will bring significant operational advantages, on June 18,” said a report in Hurriyet Daily News, citing a statement released by Samsunlu.
İGA was founded in 2013 to construct and operate Istanbul Airport for 25 years. The construction of the airport, which is 35 km from the city centre, will be completed in four phases. The first phase was finalised when two runways and a terminal with a passenger capacity of 90 million were commissioned last year.
Once completed, the airport operator aims to host flights to more than 300 destinations with an annual capacity of 200 million passengers.
