ISTANBUL's much delayed new mega airport will now launch 'full passenger operations' on March 3, two months later than planned, reports London's Air Cargo News.

IGA Airport, the group which built and will operate the Istanbul hub under a 25 year concession, has now confirmed officially the new opening date, following press speculation.



Said IGA: 'On March 3, the airport will become fully operational, replacing the current Istanbul Ataturk Airport, which will be closed for scheduled passenger flights.'



The plan is for freighter operations to make the switch later this year, when Ataturk closes to commercial use.



Kadri Samsunlu, chief executive of IGA Airport Operations, said of the March 3 full opening: 'We are all ready for the occasion.'
