Construction of the largest airport in the world - Turkey

Turkey is building the largest airport in the world New, the third airport in Istanbul will become the largest in the world and will be able to serve 90 million passengers per year at the first stage, which is even more than the new airport in Beijing (86 million). The airport is being constructed near the intersection of roads from the provinces Arnavutköy, and Chataldja in the north of the European part of Istanbul at Lake Terkos.

The construction site occupies an area of ​​7,659 hectare, about 6,172 hectare of which are forests of state ownership. The distance between the new airport under construction and Ataturk Airport is about 35 kilometers in a straight line. On the construction site there are old open coal mines, which will then be covered with earth.

The future airport will be connected by several lines of the Istanbul metro with the city center to 2018 year: one to Gairettepa station on the M2 line, the other to Halkali station of the Marmaray railway line. According to a study by the Turkish Ministry of Agriculture on the environmental impact of the airport project, 2 513 341 trees growing in the construction site, 657 950 will need to be cut down, while the rest of the trees will be transplanted to new locations. The total area of ​​the airport will be 80 million square meters. At the airport will work 225 thousand people.

The passenger terminal, which will be launched at the end of 2018 year, will be the largest building of this type in the world. It will accommodate: 13 registration islands with 468 racks, 114 self-check-in kiosks, 51 kiosk for self-check-in, 228 passport control points, 77 gateways, Duty Free area of ​​55 thousand sq. M. meters, a luggage system with a length of 42 km, capable of handling 28,9 thousand pieces of luggage per hour.

Further stages envisage the construction of two more terminals and three runways, which will raise the capacity of the new Istanbul air gates to 200 million passengers per year. The harbor will be able to simultaneously receive 114 aircraft. The new airport is located at 35 km from the city and will be connected to Istanbul by the metro line. The decision to build a new airport and close Ataturk Airport was due to the overload of the latter and the impossibility of its further expansion.
