International airports include customs and international terminal. Passengers can fly abroad through direct or connecting flights. The international airport can also be used for domestic flights apart from the international. These terminals are two different terminals as domestic and international terminals.
International airports can have different features depending on the country. However, some of these standards are defined by aviation standards. It is mandatory to include customs, security checkpoints and international terminal within these airports. Different from other airports, international airports have duty free shops, lounge sections, waiting areas, airline company's offices, baby care rooms, prayer rooms or tourism offices. International airports are generally larger than the airports only with domestic terminals.
Airports are designed in accordance with international airport standards defined by IATA and ICAO. IATA and ICAO codes of airports are defined also by these centers.
Airport (havalimanı) is the common usage in Turkish rather than airline hub (havaalanı) as it can have different meanings in Turkish. By the rules of General Directorate of State Airports (DHMI in Turkish), the term airport (havalimanı) is used officially rather than air hub (havaalanı) even though they have the same meaning.
By 2018, there are 35 international airports in Turkey. Once all the airports in Turkey have ICAO codes, all airports can be international airports.
