Expansion Project

Importance of the Project

Antalya Airport is among the top fourteen busiest airports in Europe and the top three busiest airports in Turkey. Antalya Region, which is one of the most popular tourism destinations in the world, has been operated by air between 2012-2021 despite many global crises, including the pandemic. The Airport hosted a total of 251,922,634 passengers traveling to the Antalya. Only in 2019, 35,5 million passengers used our airport. It is inevitable that this number will increase to higher levels in the coming years.

In order for Antalya Airport, which is currently being operated at its maximum capacity, to be prepared for future periods, it has been decided by the Public Authority to increase its capacity with a comprehensive expansion project. For this purpose, Fraport AG and TAV Airports Holding partnership won the tender held by DHMI with the highest bid.

The project will be completed in 3 phases in total, the 1st phase will take place between 2022-2025, the 2nd phase between 2028-2029 and the 3rd phase between 2038-2039. Most of the work to be completed under the enlargement will be done in the first phase.

When the project is completed, it is expected to make a significant contribution to the national economy. In addition, the project is expected to make a significant contribution to regional tourism and all interactive sectors, as local employment is strengthened and almost all of the tourists coming to the region use the airline.

Project details and stages are shown in the picture below.
