İzmir Adnan Menderes Airport (IATA: ADB, ICAO: LTBJ) is an international airport serving İzmir 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 of the city center in the Gaziemir district 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 Ataturk Airport, Antalya Airport, Sabiha Gökçen Airport and Esenboğa Airport), and 4th in terms of domestic passenger traffic (after Ataturk Airport, Sabiha Gökçen Airport and Esenboğa Airport) within the country.
ADB has two runways, 16L/34R and 16R/34L, however the two runways can not operate simultneously due to the lack of a taxiway. This has led to runway 16R/34L being used has the sole runway, while runway 16L/34R is used as a taxiway. Construction has begun on a taxiway and it is expected to be finished by December 2018.
