We Have Done?Steel Construction Work of 3. ?stanbul International Airport

Istanbul New Airport (Turkish: ?stanbul Yeni Havaliman?) is an international airport under construction in the Arnavutk?y district on the European side of Istanbul, Turkey.

The airport is planned as the largest airport in the world with a 150 million annual passenger capacity in its last planned expansion stage, while remaining upgradable to handle 200 million annual passengers if required in the future. The airport was planned due to a reported lack of capacity in the existing airports of Istanbul. It will be the third international airport to be built in Istanbul after Atatürk Airport and Sabiha G?k?en Airport. Atatürk Airport will be closed down for scheduled passenger flights once the new airport is operational; and its IATA code IST will be transferred to the new airport.

As of April 2018, around 85% of the first stage of construction is completed. The inauguration of the airport is planned to take place on 29 October 2018. It was reported that the first test landing at the airport would take place on February 26, 2018, however this did not happen.
