IS­TAN­BUL NEW AIR­PORT FACES DE­LAY

Business Traveller - - UPFRONT -

ALTHOUGH THE IS­TAN­BUL NEW AIR­PORT was due to cel­e­brate its of­fi­cial open­ing on Oc­to­ber 29, it seems that flight op­er­a­tions will not com­mence un­til the end of 2018/be­gin­ning of 2019. The plan is to move air­craft be­tween the old and new air­ports at the end of De­cem­ber, but the sit­u­a­tion could well change and, at the time of go­ing to press, de­tails were scarce. Once open, the new air­port will have the ca­pac­ity to han­dle as many as 200 mil­lion pas­sen­gers, although the ini­tial pas­sen­ger vol­ume will be 90 mil­lion. See our June 2018 is­sue for a be­hind-the-scenes look at the air­port. igair­port.com/en
