Number of passengers in leading airports in Turkey 2013-2018

Istanbul’s Atatürk Airport was Turkey’s leading airport between 2013 and 2018. Before closing for commercial passenger flights in April 2019, passengers numbers at Atatürk Airport averaged more than 60 million in the past three years, making it the fourth busiest airport in Europe.
Although still operating as a cargo, maintenance, general aviation and diplomatic flights airport, Istanbul Atatürk Airport was replaced by newly built Istanbul Airport following increased passenger demand.

Future demand scenario

The number of airplane travelers in Turkey was forecast to reach a total of 350 million by 2023. The majority of these travelers would be of domestic origin, while international passengers were expected to account for 170 million.

Commercial flights

In 2017, nearly 1.3 million scheduled commercial flights had departed from the country. This was the peak since the beginning of the reporting period in 2002. Figures increased consecutively in these years, apart from a small decline noted in 2016.
