  • On 15 September 2012, an Armenian cargo aircraft landed here while en route to Aleppo, Syria so that Turkish authorities could check for arms. Coming less than a week after a jetliner of Syrian Arab Airlines was forced to land in Ankara due to suspicion of carrying arms, this stop was planned and agreed on beforehand.[3]
  • On 21 October 2015, an airliner did an emergency landing while en route from Vienna to Abu Dhabi to offload a Slovakian economy class passenger who was handcuffed and arrested for using the closer business class lavatory after getting airsickness. The passenger was accommodated in a hotel overnight by the Turkish authorities and given a ticket to get back to her home country via Istanbul. The Slovakian ambassador to Turkey sent a letter of thanks to the airport authorities for taking care of their citizen.[4]
