Istanbul Airport (İstanbul Havalimanı) has carried more than 52 million passengers on its 5 runways. However, this number is from April so it would actually go to the 70 million departures / arrivals. The airport is new in Istanbul and has taken over the old airport called Ataturk in early 2019. The largest carrier is Turkish Airlines that has departures to destinations all over the world. IST departures will stagnate in 2020 due to the corona virus after a good start in January 2020 with more than 5 million passengers.
