Of course you can

If the new mega-airport to Istanbul's north-west gets constructed, then would it replace the existing Ataturk Airport and Sabina Gokcen Airport (so the latter two would be forced to close down) or will the three airports work simultaneously? If the three airports work simultaneously, then would the new airport end up underperforming and being a total failure like Montreal's Mirabel Airport, especially in light of proposed Gokcen Airport expansion plans?

As far as i understand this is the plan

-Atatürk Airport will be reduced to its original capacity of 25-30 PAX.
Will be used mainly for cargo and charter flights.

- Sabiha Gökcen will be expanded to 70 PAX

- 3rd Airport will have a capacity of 70 PAX. If it is not enough it will expanded to 90 PAX. And still can be expanded to 120 PAX and later to max. of 150 PAX.

But if the new mega-airport reaches its maximum capacity, then would Ataturk Airport still close down?

Maybe in 30-50 years they will demolish Atatürk

Consortium wins Istanbul airport tender for 22.1 billion euros

Cengiz-Kolin-Limak-Mapa-Kalyon Consortium, a joint venture of only local companies, won the tender for a third airport in Istanbul, promising to pay the government 22.1 billion euros for 25 years starting from 2017.

Seventeen groups qualified to enter the tender, but only four -TAV, IC-Fraport Consortium, Cengiz-Kolin-Limak-Mapa-Kalyon Consortium and Makyol İnşaat-showed up at today's bidding session.

IC-Fraport Consortium, the last competitor of the winning consortium, and TAV withdrew from the race at 22.1 billion euros, following Makyol İnşaat, which quited in an earlier phase.

From the closed envelopes, IC-Fraport had offered 20 billion euros (tax excluded) for the 25-year lease, Cengiz-Kolin-Limak-Mapa-Kalyon had given 12.7 billion euros, TAV had given 9 billion euros, while Makyol had given a moderate 4 billion euros before withdrawing from the tender.

Fifteen Turkish and two foreign companies had bought for Istanbul’s third airport, which was valued at more than 7 billion euros ($9 billion) by Turkish Transport Minister Binali Yıldırım. Many of Turkey’s leading companies, including Enka, Doğuş and Sabancı Holding, and two foreign companies, Malesian Khazanah Nasional Beerhad and India-based GMR Infrastructure, did not submit their bids although they bought the specification, the Anatolian News Agency reported.

In order to spark competition for the third airport, the Transportation Ministry introduced some amendments to the specifications last week. The changes made in the specifications included lifting the three-company limit for consortiums and the requirement that a dominant partner own a 51 percent share.

The tender for the build-operate-transfer project, which is to be conducted in four stages, will be for a 25-year lease, with the cooperation of the private and public sectors. The state will guarantee the amount of passengers and tariff levels for a certain amount of time.

Following the finalization of the tender approval, the first phase of construction is set to be after 42 months, in 2017, and will provide an initial capacity of 90 million passengers a year. Once all six of the planned runways are complete, the capacity is expected to increase to 150 million passengers, the world’s largest in terms of the passenger capacity at full capacity. The airport is planned to provide jobs for 100,000 people, the Minister Binali Yıldırım said earlier.

A total of six runways, 16 taxiways, 165 aircraft passenger bridges at all terminals and 6,5 million square meter apron with 500 aircraft parking capacity among other facilities will be constructed.

The new airport is planned to be constructed at the Istanbul’s European side between the Black Sea regions of Yeniköy and Akpınar, on an area of 7,659 hectares. Some 6,172 hectares of this area is forest land.

The Environmental Impact Assessment’s (ÇED) report for the 3rd airport project in Istanbul said last April the total number of trees in the area is 2,513,341 and 657,950 of them will need to be cut indispensably while 1,855,391 of the trees will be moved to new places. However the exact number of the trees to be cut and moved will be revealed after the airport’s project is completed, the Forestry Ministry told the Hürriyet Daily News.

And the tender has been taken to court by the head office of the Turkish Chamber of Environmental Engineers (ÇMO) on the grounds that the project violated the existing legislation for the environmental impact assessment (ÇED) report preparation.

how do you mean that? new record in flights or new record in passengers?
in may IST had 4,5 mil passengers, that basically mean every day passed thru the airport almost 146 000 passengers.
maybe this statistics are without trasit passengers?

I think the construction of the new 150 million mega airport will start this year.

Atatürk and Sabiha made records in flight this year and working with over capacity.

I even flew with an Airbus A340-400 ( long-haul plane ) just from Istanbul to Frankfurt . I would expect such long-haul planes for flights to Singapore.

SAW | İstanbul Sabiha Gökçen International Airport

Sabiha Gökçen International Airport (IATA: SAW, ICAO: LTFJ) is one of the two international airports serving İstanbul, Turkey. The facility is named after Sabiha Gökçen, the first female combat pilot in the world. Located 35 km (22 mi) southeast of central İstanbul, it is on the Asian side of the bi-continental city. It was built because Atatürk International Airport (on the European side) was not large enough to meet the booming passenger demands (both domestic and international). SAW's international terminal capacity was 3 million passengers per year and the domestic terminal capacity was 0.5 million passengers per year. In June 2007, Turkish conglomerate Limak Holding, India's GMR Group and Malaysia Airport Holding Berhad (MAHB) consortium gained the contract for upgrading and maintaining the airport. In mid-2008, ground was broken to upgrade the international terminal to handle 25 million passengers annually.

The new terminal was inaugurated on 31 October 2009. In 2010, Sabiha Gökçen airport handled 11,129,472 passengers, a 71% increase compared to 2009. The airport is planning to host 25 million passengers by 2023.


The features of and the services at the new terminal of the Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen International Airport and its outlying buildings include:

a four-storey car park with a capacity of about 4,718 vehicles + 72 bus (3.836 indoors and 882 + 72 bus outdoors).
a four-storey hotel with 128 rooms, adjacent to the terminal and with separate entrances at air and ground sides.
112 check-in, 24 online check-in counters
a VIP building & apron viewing CIP halls with business lounges
Multi Aircraft Ramp System (MARS), allowing simultaneous service to 8 aircraft with large fuselages (IATA code E) or 16 middle-sized fuselage aircraft (IATA code C).
a 400 m² conference center
5,000 m² food court, for cafés and restaurants belonging the leading food & beverage brands
a duty-free shopping area, with a ground of 4,500 square-meters; with shops at international standards.

The airport's cargo terminal has a capacity of 90,000 tons per year and is equipped with 18 cold storage depots.
