In Istanbul in 2024, three landings at the same time

IGA Istanbul Airport also has plans to implement the first triple parallel runway operation in Europe in 2024.

Selahattin Bilgen, CEO at iGA Istanbul Airport added, “We will break new ground among ICAO member nations with our triple independent runway operations.” Bilgen continued: “We are targeting operations with the highest efficiency and capacity, after the USA. With this method, our 120 ATM/h (hourly air traffic capacity) capacity can potentially exceed 148 ATM/h. This capacity increase in air traffic will play an essential role in our airport exceeding its contract’s 150 million passenger target and reaching 200 million passengers without any additional runway investment following Phase 5.”
