Istanbul, the third airport ready within 2013
Istanbul, Turkey - It will hold 10 million passengers
The third airport of Istanbul will be carried out within 2013. According to some press sources, the airport can hold 10 million passengers every year, and will be placed in Corlu (Tekirdag). Over 500 million dollars have been appropriated for its realization.

The airport of Ataturk, the main of the city with its 25 million passengers is more and more congested, and it has also runways not appropriate to support the increase of passenger and cargo traffic.

The airport of Sabiha Gokcen (3.5 million passengers), placed in the Asian side of the city and recently privatized, is specializing as international airport for low-cost flights and charter, but it has low possibility to expansion.

How far is Corlu from IST; will they have an express rail and highway link?

I guess the big advantage of Yesilkoy is its proximity; is it planned for TK to move to the new airport? If not and if there are no inducements, then how will they fill this new capacity?

Corlu is not too far from IST,I don't know about rail but its a very industrialized area with a decent highway access. I'm thinking and hoping that cargo ops might be moved to Corlu.
AFAIK, if the military moves out of there IST might still have a little bit more room to expand and that will at least help them for a while.

Would that 3rd and all-new airport have a lot of room for expansion? Pardon my enthusiasm but I don't think even 25M-30M (IST) + 3.5M-5M (SAW) + 10M (new) would be enough for Istanbul for far beyond 2013. I think Turkey should think of a 50-60M single platform instead.

There is a small airport in Corlu for some time now, only used for some private traffic, training. It is not the solution for congestion in IST, or for capacity increase for the future. It is located 80 km. West of IST. Tons of room around it to make it even bigger, but like I said too far.
We all came up with different scenarios inside "Turkish Aviation Threads", some included extending 6/24 over water, which is way more cheaper than building a new airport;
Here are some other points:
-Turkish Air Force needs to leave IST with enough room to double its capacity. There are talks of building a parallel to 6/24 when this is done. Since you can reach IST with few different routes, and rail, and to some extent by catamaran service, you just have to build on this instead of starting a whole new airport 80 km. away in the middle of nowhere.
-Some high rise buildings around Istanbul have to be demolished, so simultaneous take off and landings can be performed both ways on 18 R/L and vice versa.
-SAW, Istanbul's second airport is in the midst of an expansion to 10M pax a year, and still have tons of room to grow.
-Cargo traffic will move to SAW, because of new hangars, companies leaving a small portion at IST.
-Some others can explain this better, but land is not the problem at IST to grow, but flight spacing, taxiways, runways are.
