5 most anticipated airport cargo capacity expansions

3) Istanbul, Turkey – Istanbul New Airport, Terminal 1  

One project that much of the world is eagerly anticipating is the Istanbul New Airport (INA), which will be able to handle 5.5 million tonnes of cargo per year, when it is completely finished, and will host nearly 100 carriers when all phases are finished completely and it will be the main hub for Turkish Airlines. IGA Airport Operation, the operator of INA, said the project to open Terminal 1 is on schedule to begin its phased opening in the first quarter of 2018, which is ahead of the original schedule that pegged the opening date at November 2018. In addition to eventually becoming one of the world’s largest cargo hubs once Terminal 2 is finished, INA will have a total land area of about 1.4 million square meters, plus a “cargo city” with room for 29 separate park positions for freighters.
