Turkey's Gateway to the World: Istanbul Airport
Istanbul, which is located at the intersection of Asia, and Europe besides the Middle East and has become one of the largest transfer hubs in the world, has failed to meet the increasing demands of Atatürk Airport and Sabiha Gökçen Airport. The strategic importance of Istanbul has increased with the globalizing world and intensification of intercontinental trade. With the role of eastern countries in world trade and prominence in tourism, airline traffic has begun to turn to eastern countries. With this orientation, the geographical importance of Istanbul, which is in a strategic position and is the intercontinental connection point, has increased even more. The third airport project, the largest project in the history of the Turkish Republic, has been launched in Istanbul, and it becomes the most important transfer hub in the world.
Istanbul Airport was built near Terkos Lake at Arnavutköy junction. Transportation is easily provided with its close location to many points. Construction of the metro line, which will provide transportation to the airport at many points in the city, is continuous. It is also possible to reach it by taxi, private car, or public transport such as Metrobus, bus, and Havaist.
