New Airport in Antalya to meet Growing Demand


Posted On: 4 April, 2019 In Blog

A continuation in tourism growth and a significant increase in passenger traffic to Antalya over the last decade has led to the start of works on it´s new airport which is due to be completed by 2022. Already with two airports, Antalya & Gazipasa, this new ´West Antalya´ will provide improved travelling conditions for visitors and will ease the flow of traffic through the existing terminals.

With an increase in traffic from the Middle East and continued growth from the UK, Germany & Scandinavia, there were over 31m passengers through Antalya Airport last year, compared with only 10m in 2003. Tourist numbers also hit a high of 12.4m in 2018.

Turkey currently holds the Number 1 spot for the largest number of flights to International destinations and they increased the number of flights from 60 to 316, during the AK Party government period. In 16 years they have increased the number of airports from 22 to 56 and the number of aircraft from 150 to 500, leading to a massive surge in aviation turnover which now stands at 25 billion dollars.

Mr Otkay, Vice President welcomes the new addition & participated in the opening ceremony of the ´Low Level Wind Breaking Warning System´ which will contribute to flight safety in Antalya. He went on to say ´We started to work for the construction of an airport called West Antalya Airport. We hope to complete the airport by 2022 and hope to put it in service´
