Sabiha Gökçen International Airport (IATA: SAW, ICAO: LTFJ) is one of the airports serving İstanbul, Turkey. The facility is named after Sabiha Gökçen, the first female combat pilot in the world. Located 35 km (22 mi) southeast of central İstanbul, it is on the Asian side of the bi-continental city. It was built because the Atatürk International Airport (on the European side) was not large enough to meet the booming passenger demands (both domestic and international). SAW's international terminal capacity is 3 million passengers per year and the domestic terminal capacity is 0.5 million passengers per year. In June 2007, Turkish conglomerate Limak, India's GMR Group and Malaysia Airport Holding Berhad (MAHB) consortium gained the contract for upgrading and maintaining the airport. In mid-2008, ground was broken to upgrade the international terminal to handle 25 million passengers annually.

The new terminal was inaugurated on October 31, 2009. In the first half of 2010, Sabiha Gökçen airport passenger numbers are up 93% to 4.86 million catapulting the airport to third in the national rankings.The airport is planning to host 25 million passengers by 2023.. In September 2010 the airport was voted the World's Best Airport at the World Low Cost Airlines Congress in London.
