Turkey's Sabiha Gokcen airport sees record passenger traffic

Istanbul's second airport Sabiha Gokcen hosted 6.27 million passengers in the first seven months of 2010, up 94 percent from the same period a year earlier, airport's operator ISG said on Friday.

ISG said that it almost caught last year's passenger number of 6.6 million in the first seven months of 2010.

4.2 million of total passengers used domestic flights. The number of domestic passengers rose 92 percent.

International passengers also increased 98 percent to 1.99 million, ISG said.

In July only, Sabiha Gokcen hosted 1.27 million passengers.

Sabiha Gokcen International Airport, situated on the Asian side of Istanbul, opened in 2001. In 2007, ISG, a consortium of Malaysia Airports Holdings, India's GMR Infrastructure and Turkey's Limak clinched the rights to Istanbul's second airport with a 1.9 billion-euro bid.
