New Istanbul Airport

It finally appears a date has been set for Operations to commence at the new Istanbul Airport. NOTE Nothing official from BA regarding the move as yet and this info has only been released by the Turkish state today.

1) Airport Transfer Process (45 hours) from LTBA to LTFM
The transfer period from Istanbul Atatürk Airport (LTBA) to Istanbul Airport (LTFM) will commence at 01 March 2019 00:00 UTC and end at 02 March 2019 21:00 UTC (See Airport Transfer Chart).
During the transfer period (45 hours); Istanbul Atatürk Airport (LTBA) and Istanbul Airport (LTFM) will only be available for base carriers’ flights and both Istanbul Atatürk Airport (LTBA) and Istanbul Airport (LTFM) will be operating with a common reduced capacity per hour as stated below:
- LTBA and LTFM common 35 arrivals per hour,
- LTBA and LTFM common 35 departures per hour,
- LTBA and LTFM arrival/departure total common capacity per hour 70 will be applied.
(See Airport Transfer Chart Note 2).

2) Use of Istanbul Atatürk Airport (LTBA) After 02 March 2019 21:00 UTC
As from 02 March 2019 21:00 UTC, LTBA will be closed to scheduled/unscheduled domestic and international commercial passenger flights and will only be available for cargo, maintenance/technical, general aviation, air taxi, business flights, for state aircraft and other flights permitted by Authority.
so from March 3rd latest it appears all ops are from the new facility.
