Sabiha Gokcen Airport – Brief Overview

Sabiha Gokcen Airport, serving the city of Istanbul, is one of the two main international airports in Turkey; the other one is Atatürk Airport which is also the biggest airport in Turkey when it comes to passengers. Located 22 miles to the Southeast of central Istanbul, the airport derives its name from the World’s first female combat pilot, Sabiha Gokcen Airport.

It was built as an alternative so that the constant rising passenger pressure at Atatürk Airport can be lowered and today it is one of the finest in Turkey. Having received several awards recognizing its credibility as a powerful investment for sustaining tourists to the country, this airport serves both domestic and international airlines.
