I personally think it gonna be...

ISTANBUL SULTAN SULEYMAN THE MAGNIFICENT AIRPORT
(ISTANBUL KANUNI SULTAN SULEYMAN HAVALIMANI)

After all, as a non-Turk, I can safely say that Sultan Suleyman is arguably among the most well known and grandest/glamorous Turkish historical figure to the outside world.

Even Google agreed to the above assertion:

It also relates to the fact that the project consortium is named Istanbul Grand Airport (IGA).

Before the grand opening on Oct. 29, three major rehearsals will be held at Istanbul New Airport, where university students will act as passengers to test the systems. A total of 5,000 students will try out the procedures in the rehearsal that will start on Sept. 15 and last for three days....

You may need to check it, too, as I doubt it will fit in the overhead lockers.

Sedat, thank you for telling us that the CEO of the consortium, whose predecessor was spectacularly fired when he had said that there would be a delay, has said that there will not be a delay,
Stewie Mac and mafaky like this.

But duty-free purchases will be free of charge on top of the other baggage allowances? 😀

In Turkey, always "expect, the unexpected!": The recent tender for Shuttle Bus Transportation to INA, has been cancelled on the grounds that "there's no public advantage"! In some foreseeable future, a new tender will be introduced. And we have around 6-7 weeks till the opening of the New Airport. Needless to say, there's not the slightest hope from the M11 metroline side, until end 2020 or so.
