That plan would probably be twice as expensive as building something new. Expropriation, bulldozing, filling the sea 2 kms out, constructing runways and terminals from scratch because you've torn apart everything... And not to say that Yeşilköy is a historical neighborhood that is best preserved rather than demolished.

Transavia will start a new route from Rotterdam to Istanbul SAW effective as from april 2013.
This route will be operated 3 x weekly

To bad Turkish airlines did not step into this market. I know that there were negotiations between TK and Rotterdam / the Hague airport but somehow it has not materialized into a scheduled service between the cities.

Any idea on what may happen to the old IST airport in the near future? I doubt that they will tear it down.

Sabiha will be expanded to 25 Mil.
Atatürk's capacity is already 25 Mil, but for years there are over 25 Mil. passengers / year

Sabiha Gökçen International Airport Second Runway

3,500 m of runway built on a topographically challenging site.
The project also includes a 115 metre high air traffic control tower and midfield zones.
After completion of the Sabiha Gökçen International Airport master plan and feasibility study, Arup has been appointed as preliminary designer for the Sabiha Gökçen Airport Second Runway by Undersecreteriat for Defence Industries.
The runway will be 3,500 metres long and will be built on a major earthfill structure with under passing roads, rivers and utility lines. Although the site was topographically challenging, Arup managed to find a solution with the help of 25 million m3 earthworks under the runway. The project also includes a 115 metre high air traffic control tower and midfield zones.
Scope of services
Arup is the preliminary designer for the Sabiha Gökçen Airport Second Runway and associated infrastructural works including taxi ways, aprons, air traffic control tower, a major motorway tunnel, two highway tunnels, a river tunnel and diversions of two main utility lines.
Arup provided masterplanning, construction and feasibility services, as well as cost benefit analysis, options study and risk assessment of this second runway together with associated structures for the Sabiha Gökçen Airport and the preliminary design.

Wouldn't it be better to build a single large airport and close the two older airports or, alternatively, in support of the new airport, keep open only Sabiha Gökçen Airport for low-cost flights?

Why not try airliners.net or jetphotos.net? You can search by airline, airport, date, etc...

Maybe its the long term plan.
Atatürk is quite central and as far as i understand the new 3rd airport will be expanded in phases.
So first for example just 25 Mil. Than next phase and 50 etc. Max. will be 120-150 Mil.

Sabiha has to stay. The city needs a big one at the asian side.

The new third airport of Istanbul will be the biggest of the world with a capacity of 150 million passengers.

At first stage capacity is 90 million passengers.

Sabiha and Atatürk will stay. However the capacity of Sabiha will be increased but Atatürk will function at a smaller capacity. It already works on over capacity ( 45 million passengers )

Bidding opens for 3rd İstanbul airport, slated to be world's largest



Istanbul entered the race to build the world's largest airport on Thursday, as bidding began on a 150-million passenger capacity airport which officials hope will make the city a gateway for world air travel.

Speaking to the press in Ankara on Wednesday, Transportation Minister Binalı Yıldırım said the massive airport tender would likely amount to around $8.7 billion and see the airport built within an ambitious four years. “Today the number of air passengers is more than four times İstanbul's population. We cannot expand Atatürk airport, and must expand İstanbul's airport capacity through a new airport, the world's largest,” the minister was quoted by the Anatolia news agency as saying.

The massive planned capacity of 150 million annual flyers will indeed make the airport the largest in the world -- or at least challenge regional rival Dubai, which was the largest air hub in the Middle East in 2012 with nearly 60 million flyers, according to Reuters. İstanbul currently carries a similar number of passengers, said Yıldırım, who estimated that Atatürk Airport carried 45 million passengers last year while Sabiha Gökçen International Airport carried around 15 million.

The new airport will be constructed on İstanbul's European side between the Black Sea regions of Yeniköy and Akpinar, an area where the Environment and Urban Planning Ministry is also planning to build “İstanbul Metropolitan,” a massive, 1.5 million person satellite city. Yıldırım said the airport would be a vital part of İstanbul Metropolitan, creating an estimated 120,000 jobs.

Yıldırm told reporters that contractors will be bidding on a 25-year build-and-operate contract for the airport, with firms competing on design, development costs and the price of annual rent they are willing to pay the State Airports Authority (DHMI). Though Yıldırım suggested early last year that the project would cost around $5.6 billion, a more recent figure for the project has been $8.7 billion. That figure would make it the most expensive development project in the city's history.

Interested bidders so far include TAV Airports Holding, Turkey's leading airport operator, Limak Holding, which manages Sabiha Gökçen airport, and Alarko Holding. The deadline for bid submission is April 5, a Turkish official told Reuters on Wednesday.

İstanbul isn't the only city aiming to be the world's largest air hub, however, with Dubai claiming that it will see a record-breaking 75 million passengers by 2015 and 98 million by 2020. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) Airline Industry Forecast for 2012-2016 estimates that there may be plenty of passengers to go around in coming years, predicting that global air traffic will grow by 28.5 percent to accommodate 500 million more passengers globally by 2016.

Airlines in Turkey and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) are already vying for a growing portion of that air traffic with national and discount carriers in both countries expanding international services and reporting record profits. Emirates Airline reported in November of last year that its profits doubled in the first six months of 2012 over that period in 2011. National carrier Turkish Airlines meanwhile saw passenger volume rise by 20 percent in 2012 and greatly expanded the range of its international flights last year, especially in Africa. Turkish discount carrier Pegasus Airlines meanwhile purchased an unprecedented $12 billion in Airbus planes late last year
