Istanbul Airport has received the “Readers’ Choice: Airport of the Year" award, which is given to the company with the most reader votes and organised by the International Airport Review.


Having recently completed its first year of operation, Istanbul Airport earned the approval of international authorities to become a global hub. This was thanks to the “Airport of the Year” award, which is awarded by the prestigious UK-based publication International Airport Review.

Kadri Samsunlu, the CEO and the chairman of the executive board at İGA Airport Operations said: “We are thrilled to bring an international award to our country. With a year full of Istanbul Airport’s unique architecture, strong infrastructure, state-of-the-art technology and superior passenger experience, we’ve made enormous strides in turning the airport into a global hub and advancing the Turkish civil aviation industry to higher levels by creating an exemplary operation model. The Airport of the Year award, which we received by outperforming some of the most prestigious airports, signifies our exceptional performance at Istanbul Airport. In light of the pride we’ve brought our country and the example we’ve set, we want to bring more international prizes to Turkey by achieving our targets.”
