Published on : Monday, April 9, 2018

IstanbulIstanbul New Airport is building a giant complex of international standards on the outskirts of Turkish capital city at a cost of nearly €10 billion ($12.3 billion) to attract more business and leisure tourists. This new complex is targeted to open on October 29, 2018.

 

 

Istanbul New Airport has recently achieved the appraisal by turning on the lights of the first of its three runways.

 

 

On completion, this newest complex will become world’s new aviation hub. It can accommodate 350 destinations in passenger and cargo transportation. It will also serve an approximate 100 airlines in international and national basis.

 

 

The initial phase of Istanbul New Airport will have a passenger capacity of 90 million. It will be commissioned with three independent parallel runways, taxiways, a terminal building, an air traffic control tower, communication and weather systems as well as other utility buildings.

 

 

Yusuf Akçayoglu, CEO of IGA Airports Construction said that the first runway at Istanbul New Airport is now ready for takeoff and landing. It is for the first time the runway number one, which is 3,750m long and 60m wide, has been lit up.

 

 

Istanbul New Airport has installed the world’s biggest and most sophisticated Airfield Ground Lighting at its first runway, featuring 34,183 LED lights.

 

 

The intelligent lighting makes the visual guiding process easier and improves situational surveillance and aircraft tracking systems.  This allows for optimised aircraft routing to and from the gates, a more efficient traffic flow and an increase in safety.
