Istanbul international airport (IST)

The new Istanbul Arnavutköy Airport, opened on October 29, 2018, is the international air terminal that was built to replace the former Ataturk airport from April 7th, 2019, thus becoming the main airport in Turkey. It is scheduled to operate domestic and international flights worldwide. Its construction was planned to receive 200 million passengers in the future, which makes it one of the largest in the world.

Official Website:

Number of Terminals - 1 - Divided into five concourses (A, B, D, F and G).
