Sabiha Gokgan Airport saw an 8% increase in the number of passengers in September, as the number of passengers arriving at the airport within 9 months reached 23.4 million passengers.

According to the statement issued by the Sabiha Gokgan International Airport Administration, the airport received almost 3 million male passengers and females passengers in September.

September witnessed a significant increase in the number of passengers compared to the past months, with an increase of 8%, which resulted in an increase in the total number of passengers during the period of 9 months to 23 million and 442 thousand passengers from January to Last September.

Compared with last year, we see that figures have risen significantly. Where the number of passengers in September of last year was about 2 million and 729 thousand passengers, while the total number of passengers in the first nine months of last year to 22 million and 500 thousand, this indicates an increase of up to 8% in the same period last year, the number of passengers on international lines reached 7.8 million male and female passengers, and the number of passengers in the internal lines also reached 15.6 million passengers.

The expansion of the infrastructure to Sabiha Gokgan airport is currently underway to increase the airport's capacity in order to accommodate as many passengers as possible.

The summer months see a high demand for the airport, both local and foreign tourists. This is because most people prefer to spend holidays in the months of school holidays. Istanbul is witnessing a growing air traffic, which led the Turkish government to build a third airport in the city that will be the biggest airport in the world and will be completed the first stage of it next year.
