According to property agency Spot Blue International Property, the Turkish tourism industry will soar over the next few years because of the Gazipasa Airport development plans. Airport redevelopment to boost Turkish tourism

The Gazipasa Airport, which is located on the Mediterranean coastline of Turkey, is set to increase the number of flights it receives from across the world and from the UK as well as improving its infrastructure.

The plans include potential new flight routes from across the UK, meaning that more people from Britain could fly to the Gazipasa Airport for family or singles holidays than before.

This, if given the go-ahead, will mean an expansion of the current terminal, the creation of new boarding and arrival gates and an expansion of the airport’s runway.

Murat Sen, vice president at TAV Gazipasa Airport, said: “Last year we processed 360,000 passengers, but have a target of 650,000 for 2014. Already this year we have tripled the number of passengers compared to the same period last year in 2013.”

These plans are set to increase the number of international visitors to the region, according to local officials.
