The full operation of the new Istanbul Airport has been delayed again and is now set to take place in early April. The airport was officially opened in late October, but only a very few flights have been operating from it. It was announced at the inauguration that all flights would transfer from the existing airport to the new facility at the end of 2018. It was then delayed until March 3, but the full transfer of operations is now set to begin at 03:00 on April 5 and be complete by 12:00 on April 7.
