“We transformed the airport services building, which was located on a 1,000-square-meter area that was insufficient and impractical for the airport’s needs, into an adequately sized, 23,000-square-meter airport terminal building. We also enlarged the landing field,” Erdoğan said during the opening ceremony on Sept. 14.
The construction of the airport began in 2011 and can cater up to 1 million passengers. While it only has domestic flights, it is eventually slated to also handle international arrivals and departures.
