TK operations from "Istanbul Airport" aka Istanbul New Airport (ISL/IST)
 
The full operational transfer from Atatürk airport to the new Istanbul airport will be postponed to 30/31 December according to IATA. TK will place 2 or 3 aircraft to test operations (largely domestic routes).

It's Ton that I feel sorry for - having his email and phone number plastered over the website....

Whoa! We are ticketed to fly to IST on 27th Dec and back out about a week later. So looks like we'll be into Ataturk, out of New. If the New TK lounge isn't fully operational then I'll cry. If it is and we're amongst the first to use it then I won't cry!

The headline on the linked article translates as:

"[Secret/disguised/hidden] postponement of the opening of the third airport: actual opening 31st December."

Article goes on to say that for one month after "soft" opening, only two or three THY on domestic routes will be operated.

Glad to officially know my JFK-IST flight next month will be to Ataturk. Will be quite interesting to see which domestic routes they choose for testing purposes, quite a logistical headache I would imagine.

I see a few ex-ISL domestic flights were already loaded into the GDS'e. For now a single frequency per day:

Sounds like that could result in some awkward (mis/mal)connections.

..................and how are the unlucky few passengers on these flights going to get to town? There is no train. There is no bus, the "taxi cooperatif" most likely will not have any cars there, unless literally someone responsible is reading this very thread, and makes sure that some are there..........

Should be great for Ankara-Baku or Antalya-Ercan...

So what's with the lounge? Will be get to see some pictures?

I think they have to actually finish building and furnish it first.
