Unofficially the newly opened airport in Istanbul, currently the third largest in the world, will receive airplanes from Sarajevo in early 2019.
Turkish Airlines will direct flights from Sarajevo to Istanbul from the beginning of 2019 to the newly opened airport.
So far, the main airport in Istanbul “Kemal Ataturk” will gradually be closed until the final abolition of commercial flights.
Although there is still a lot of work to be done about the completion of all the work at the airport, it has already been estimated that the newly built airport will generate an annual turnover of almost 90 million passengers, and by 2028, the number of passengers could increase to an incredible 200 million.
When fully operational, in just over 10 years, this airport will be the largest in the world. The airport is located in the European part of Istanbul, more precisely in the area of Arnavutkoy.
Istanbul Grand Airport (IGE) is a company that has a 25-year contract that regulates the management of a new airport that will be one of the world’s finest in the technology segment.
As previously reported by the world’s media, the new Istanbul airport will have six runways and 16 trackways for taking the plane.
