Turkish Airlines' growth may strain Istanbul’s airport system

Turkish Airlines announced it is among the fastest-growing airlines in the AEA as it takes delivery of more aircraft and launches more routes. The airline stated that due to its growth, Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen’s ability to continue its strong growth and become a major hub was at risk, warning that Istanbul will soon be slot-constrained and a third international airport will be needed.
