Sabiha Gökçen Airport is ready for the tourism season. “With the opening of the holiday season, we have made all our preparations to offer our guests an easy and comfortable travel experience at our airport,” said Kerem Maybek, Acting CEO of ISG.

With the start of the holiday season, Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen International Airport has completed its preparations to further increase its service quality. Having completed 2023 with a record 37.1 million passengers, Sabiha Gökçen welcomed 16.2 million passengers in the first five months of the year.

Ranking 2nd in the category of ‘mega airports’ hosting 25 million to 40 million passengers annually, Sabiha Gökçen Airport, with a 13.2% increase in passenger density, continues to contribute to Turkey’s tourism and offer tourists a more comfortable travel experience with its increased passenger capacity with the second runway.

Kerem Maybek, Acting CEO of ISG, said, “The 2024 tourism season has started early and we have completed our improvement works in the terminal in parallel with this mobility before the expected school and holiday season. We have positioned additional gates and X-Ray devices to ease the passenger circulation in the terminal. We have assigned additional personnel in the operation, security and cleaning teams to increase the travel comfort of our passengers. We have also increased hygiene measures due to the expected intensity. Especially to facilitate the passage of international passengers through the passport control points, X-Ray devices have been moved 5 meters forward and the area in the security zone has been relieved. While the number of e-passport counters has been increased, we also have future projects to expand the passport control area on the Departures and Arrivals floors. In addition, within the scope of improving aviation security, we have redesigned and reshaped the BHS (Under Chute) Systems of our terminal to provide faster baggage handling time and more effective baggage operation.”

Speaking about the works carried out to meet the parking demands of passengers, Maybek said, “We have opened the parking lot with a capacity of 474 vehicles in front of the old terminal to the service of our guests in a way to meet the holiday density. In order to meet the increasing demand, work on the open parking area project, which we call the “Triangle Open Parking Lot Project” in the long term, has also started on the east side of the Arrivals Level.”

Fast and easy travel with digital solutions

Emphasizing that they make pre-travel transactions faster and easier with digital solutions, Kerem Maybek said, “Our guests can instantly track all flight information on the Sabiha Gökçen Mobile Application. They can also check-in with the self-service kiosks in our terminal and complete their transactions at the e-passport counters without waiting in line by using the Fast Passport Transition System with their chip passports.”

Mehmet Kali

Hello everyone. My name is Mehmet Kali. In the industry, I am known as "Kali". I graduated from the first civil aviation training school in Turkey, which was known as the Civil Aviation School at the time and is now Eskişehir Technical University, in 1991. As I graduated from the Business Administration department, it was a bit challenging for me to integrate into the industry. I have worked for companies such as SultanAir, DHMI, Havaş, and Swissair, and currently, I provide services and consultancy in air cargo transportation. I have experience in dispatching, air traffic control, passenger services, and aircraft coordination. During my time at Swissair, I had the opportunity to experience aviation training in many countries. Since 2012, I have been focusing on air cargo transportation. For three years, I taught courses on air cargo at Nişantaşı University. I still hold valid IATA certifications related to both passenger and cargo operations. For over ten years, I have been managing aeroportist.com, a news website related to aviation, which initially started as a hobby. I enjoy building aviation networks and sharing knowledge. If there is anything I can contribute to, I am here. Best regards "kali"
