Istanbul has always been the passage connecting Eastern and Western world separated by Bosphorus strait which acts as the boundary wall between Europe and Asia. This new airport in Istanbul is set to magnify the status to a whole new level by making it one of the biggest hub point not only in Europe and Asia but all across the world.
What is so special about this airport when Istanbul already has two airports. Well, following are the few reasons that travelers, business and leisure should keep their eyes on this state-of-art installation.
About Istanbul Airport
This airport is really big and by the time this whole project is completed, it will be the biggest airport in the world. It will offer a capacity of 200 million passengers with accessibility to over 300 destinations across the world. In the first stage, it will welcome over 90 million passengers which will be around 30 million more than the current hub that is Ataturk Airport.
What Will Happen To Ataturk Airport
This new airport will gradually take over the current airport till all the operations are moved. Then the old airport will be converted into a public garden and entertainment place. The Location: This new airport is an hour away from the city, keeping in view the area and the size that is required for the infrastructure. It is on the northwestern side of the city on the coast of the Black Sea.
This project was supposed to be completed by February though it did have a soft landing. But the official opening is planned on Turkish National Day which is 29th Oct 2018. However, the full operations of the first stage will be around at the end of the year. Three more stages of construction with 200 million passengers is set to be completed before 2030.
Although we do not know the exact details but according to plans, the new airport is set to have: VIP Lounges Duty Free Shopping Centers Restaurants Prayer Rooms Hotels Convention Centers Sounds like any other airport but when we factor in the vastness of the project it seems that these things will also change the meaning and the image of these amenities.

The architectural design of the Airport reflects the rich historical significance of Istanbul mosques, baths, domes, and many other historic structures. These motives are inspired by Turkish-Islamic art and architecture texture and depth to the facility.
