Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen International Airport Investment Development and Operation Inc. (ISG), continues its investment program after taking over the operations at the airport. Additional facility building has become operational in order to double the terminal’s capacity and ease the passenger flow.

Istanbul, -- August 2008 –
ISG, which took over the operational rights of Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen Airport for 20 years on May 1st 2008, continues its investment program without interruption.

ISG was decided to enlarge the existing Domestic Terminal Building with an additional facility in order to handle air traffic and passenger volume. With the additional building, constructed in a surprisingly short period of 59 days, the existing Domestic A Terminal’s annual passenger capacity has been doubled.

The additional Domestic Terminal Building, with a base area of 1600 square meters, has been constructed west of the existing building - with a base area of 2000 square meters – and is completely allocated for domestic arrivals. The new building has a 260 square meter passenger welcoming hall, 630 square meter baggage reception hall, cafetaria and rental car units. As the additional building between the two terminals became operational, the existing Domestic Terminal Building is completely allocated to departures. The two buildings has been linked through a passage hall.

The new international terminal of Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen, which is being constructed, will have 96 check – in points, 30 online check - in points, a total of 32 X – ray units and two – storey VIP terminal. There will also be a four – storey car park with a capacity for 4724 vehicles plus 72 buses (3842 indoors and 882 + 72 outdoors). A 60 - room hotel will be built next to the terminal for flight teams, transit and other passengers. With the multi aircraft parking system, which will used in Turkey for the first time, it will be possible to serve 8 D-E type big fuselage and 16 C type medium fuselage planes simultaneously.
