New Istanbul airport
« on: April 12, 2019, 11:38:46 AM »
Hi all - I understand Turkish Airlines have moved all of their flights to the new airport.  Has any one gone via there yet?

I travel via Istanbul in 7 weeks and would appreciate any advice on transfer times etc - I know the old airport could be a bit squeaky on time as domestic and international terminals were a bit of a walk from each other

Thanks in anticipation!

It looks very nice...All the major airlines have now moved from Ataturk airport...it is due to be fully completed in 2027 at which point it will carry 200 million passengers per year It is projected to cost 7 Billion Euros (it has also cost 1.5 million plus trees)
and is also on course to be the largest Airport in the world. 6 times the area of Heathrow with 6 runways and 4 terminals..most of the planes are at remote stands and people are saying it can take 25 + mins taxying around...The new terminal is vast and  passengers are saying it takes 25/30 min to get from one end to the other .It is located 30 kilometres north of Istanbul in Amuavutkoy district.
google it for a more in depth report the Guardian report seems the best or good old wikipedia ;)

We are travelling via Istanbul in just under 4 weeks time. We have about 3 1/2 hrs between flights so should be able to get through immigration, have a look round and get to our gate without stress. I'll try and post an update when we're in Kalkan.
Had to cancel our original flights and re-book though as we would normally have travelled out on the 5pm from Gatwick, stayed overnight at a hotel close to Ataturk and then got the 2nd flight of the day to Dalaman, but there don't seem to be many hotels close enough to the new airport to be able to do that now.
