Sabiha Gokcen International Airport (SGIA) in Turkey will open its new terminal, which will cater for 25 million passengers a year, by the end of October.

The new 180,000m² terminal, which covers four storeys, has a wave-shaped roof and accommodates 5,000m² for food and beverage outlets, 4,500m² for duty free, 3,300m² for departures and 1,200m² for arrivals.

Once the terminal is in place, non-aeronautical revenues accounting for 30% of income at SGIA will increase to 50%, according to the airport’s chief commercial officer Server Aydin.

The duty free business will be managed by Setur Duty Free, while food and beverage will be handled by airport-owned subsidiary LGM as well as a number of local concessions.

The airport handled around 4.3 million passengers in 2008, and plans to increase this number to six million by the end of 2009.
