About

Izmir is one of the touristic regions and import-export centers of Turkey. The province as a whole is Turkey's third largest exporter after Istanbul and Bursa. Due to these facts, the province is one of the main provinces with a hectic traffic flow and Izmir Airport is currently ranked as the fourth among the country airports in terms of passenger traffic.

The competition among airline companies has emerged low cost airfare in Turkey in recent years. Hence, the popularity of air transportation has significantly grown in the country compared to past.
Based on the facts, an expansion was deemed necessary to accommodate the forecasted increase in flights at the airport which forecast (under the base case scenario) about 6% annual increase in air traffic during the concession period. The expansion;

  • will improve the efficiency of airport operations,
  • will increase the number of aircraft and passengers the airport can serve,
  • will help reductions in travel, access and waiting time,
  • will support for the growth of the regional economy, and
  • will minimize the need for airport development in new locations by making best use of existing capacity where possible.
