With the goal of further expanding their offer to passengers travelling from West to East and from North to South (and vice versa), Turkey is underway the construction of a new airport on the European side of Istanbul. The Istanbul New Airport planned to be the largest airport in the world, with 150 million annual passenger capacity, possibly expandable to 200 million, if required in the future. As of May 2018, around 90% of construction is completed. The inauguration of the airport is planned to take place on 29 October 2018.
