Izmir Adnan Menderes Airport (IATA: ADB, ICAO: LTBJ) (Turkish: İzmir Adnan Menderes Havalimanı) is an international airport serving Izmir and most of the surrounding province in Turkey. It is named after former Turkish prime minister Adnan Menderes.


İzmir's main airport is located 18 km (11 mi) southwest[2] of the city center in the Gaziemir district[4] on the way to Selçuk, Ephesus and Pamukkale. The new international terminal, which was designed by Yakup Hazan Architecture, opened in September 2006, with the new domestic terminal opening at around March 2014. It replaced Çiğli Air Base which is now used only as a military base.

In 2017, ADB served 12.8 million passengers, 10.5 million of which were domestic passengers. It has ranked 5th in terms of total passenger traffic (after Atatürk Airport, Antalya Airport, Sabiha Gökçen Airport and Esenboğa Airport), and 4th in terms of domestic passenger traffic (after Atatürk Airport, Sabiha Gökçen Airport and Esenboğa Airport) within the country.[5]

ADB has two runways, 16R/34L and 16L/34R; however, the two runways can not operate simultaneously due to the lack of a dedicated taxiway to runway 16R/34L. This has led to the use of runway 16L/34R as the sole runway, while runway 16R/34L is used as a parallel taxiway for the time being. In efforts to expand the airport's facilities, existing entrance taxiways are in the process of being refurbished, along with the construction of a new parallel taxiway, entrance taxiways, and aprons for passenger and cargo aircraft, as well as for de-icing. These projects are expected to be completed by July 2019.[6][7]
