Ordu-Giresun Airport

Ordu-Giresun Airport (IATA: OGU, ICAO: LTCB) (Turkish: Ordu-Giresun Havalimanı) is an airport on an artificial island just off the coast of Gülyalı, a town in Ordu Province, Turkey and Piraziz, a town in Giresun Province, Turkey. It is located 19 km (12 mi) away from Ordu and 25 km (16 mi) from Giresun city centres. It is the third artificial island airport in the world. The idea for an airport on an artificial island for the two Black Sea provinces was first conceived in 1992. The construction work was started in 1994. However, due to high costs, the project came to a halt shortly afterward. The government took a second airport project into consideration, and plans were worked out between 2008 and 2010. The project started on 13 July 2011. The opening of the airport for traffic took place on 22 May 2015. The airport is on a reclaimed land from sea in Gülyalı. About 30 million tons of rocks were used for the artificial island. It has a 3,000 m × 45 m (9,843 ft × 148 ft) runway, a 240 m × 120 m (790 ft × 390 ft) airport apron, a 250 m × 24 m (820 ft × 79 ft) taxiway, a 20,000 m2 (220,000 sq ft) terminal building as well as 16,500 m2 (178,000 sq ft) technical service and air traffic control building. The airport's construction cost 290 million (US $128.5 million). It is expected to serve about 2 million passengers annually for the two provinces Ordu and Giresun, which have a total population of 1.2 million.
