Istanbul Atatürk Airport has become “The airport with the most new long-haul routes” at Euro Annies 2015 Awards. Gazipaşa-Alanya was selected as 'The fastest growing airport' in its category.

TAV Airports vice president Kemal Ünlü said: “Being one of the world's most significant hubs, Istanbul Atatürk Airport continues to expand its destination network. Providing service to 422,000 aircraft and 57 million passengers in 2014, Atatürk Airport was ranked the fourth airport of Europe and 13th airport of the world. Today, 128 airline companies launch flights to 276 domestic and international destinations from Atatürk Airport. Our devoted works carried out together with all of our stakeholders, particularly with General Directorate of State Airports Authority (DHMI), Turkish Airlines and General Directorate of Civil Aviation (SHGM) will continue to win recognition. Furthermore, we are glad that TAV-operated Gazipaşa-Alanya Airport, which has achieved an increasing growth trend, has been presented the title of ‘The fastest growing airport’ in its own category.”
